It is becoming increasingly hard to deny the ever-widening divide between schools of political thought on the global stage of late, with the authoritarian regimes of the world continuing to gather allegiances to one another in the face of freedom itself.
The tip of this tyrannical spear has already plunged itself into the eastern flank of Ukraine, where the Russian army is preparing to use Iranian drones in their invasion, which has been bankrolled at least in part by dark oil deals between Moscow and Beijing.
And, as if this axis of evil weren’t already enough to deal with, it appears as though North Korea may be joining the fray as well.
Up to 100,000 North Korean soldiers could be sent to bolster Vladimir Putin’s forces fighting Ukraine, according to Russian reports.
A leading defence expert in Moscow, reserve colonel Igor Korotchenko, told state TV: “We shouldn’t be shy in accepting the hand extended to us by Kim Jong-un.”Trending:
North Korea has made it clear through “diplomatic channels” that as well as providing builders to repair war damage, it is ready to supply a vast fighting force, reported Regnum news agency.
The plans were already well-developed.
They would be deployed to the forces of the separatist pro-Putin Donetsk People’s Republic [DPR] and Luhansk People’s Republic [LPR], both of which Kim has recently recognised as independent countries.
“The country is ready to transfer up to 100,000 of its soldiers to Donbas,” said the report by the pro-Kremlin news agency.
“Pyongyang will be able to transfer its tactical units to Donbas.”
In return, North Korea will receive Russian energy and grain, (presumably either from Russia or Ukraine); two things that the impoverished hermit kingdom could use plenty of.
