First famous in a New York Occasions report citing “declassified” US intelligence supplies, the purported arms deal was later given official credence by State Division deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel, who informed reporters that Russia “is within the course of of buying thousands and thousands of rockets and artillery shells from North Korea to be used in Ukraine” earlier this month.
