The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak claimed that the scandal over the missile engines of North Korea is the explicit fake. He claimed this at the meeting with the journalists that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
‘I think that is one more fake. If we observe the media space than it seems that Russia or people who do not want to see Ukraine as the strong independent state embroil us to all scandals that exist in the world. It is the next involvement to the case that does not exist and never existed. It is the utter fake’, Poltorak commented.
As it was reported earlier The New York Times published an article saying that DPRK’s missile success linked to Ukrainian plant. Analysts inspecting the new rocket motors concluded that they derive from designs that once powered the Soviet Union’s missile fleet; the engines were so powerful that a single missile could hurl 10 thermonuclear warheads between continents, the article reads.
Later, the Yuzhmash Company, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov and the Space Agency of Ukraine denied the participation of Ukraine in North Korea nuclear program.
The author of the report on the supply of Ukraine of the missile engines to North Korea noted at Twitter that he did not affirm that exactly Ukraine is a supplier of the missile engines to North Korea on August 15.
