US says Russia’s Wagner Group bought North Korean weapons for Ukraine war – Reuters

The private Russian military company, the Wagner Group, took delivery of an arms shipment from North Korea to help bolster Russian forces in Ukraine, the White House said on 22 December, Reuters reported:

“We can confirm that North Korea has completed an initial arms delivery to Wagner, which paid for that equipment. Last month, North Korea delivered infantry rockets and missiles into Russia for use by Wagner,” John Kirby, spokesman for the White House National Security Council, told reporters saying that Wagner was searching around the world for arms suppliers.
