DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman on Independence of Donetsk and Lugansk
Pyongyang, July 15 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Friday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA as regards the fact that the DPRK recognized the independence of the People's Republic of Donetsk and the People's Republic of Lugansk:

As reported, on July 13 the DPRK decided to recognize the independence of the People's Republic of Donetsk and the People's Republic of Lugansk and expressed the will to develop the state-to-state relations with those countries in the idea of independence, peace and friendship.

To develop the state-to-state relations of friendship on the basis of respect for the principle of people's rights to equality and self-determination is the peculiar and legitimate right of a sovereign state specified in the purpose and principles of the UN Charter.

Ukraine, which had committed acts quite contrary to impartiality and justice in the state-to-state relations while aligning itself with the U.S. unreasonable and illegal hostile policy toward the DPRK in the past, has no right and qualification to take issue with the DPRK over its legitimate exercise of sovereignty.

The DPRK will as ever develop the bonds of friendship and cooperation with all other countries in the world that respect its sovereignty and are friendly to it, on the principles of sovereignty equality, non-interference and mutual respect. -0-

I would've thought it wiser to abstain, but what do I know.

Funny thing is that through corruption Ukraine is probably the country most responsible for the development of the DPRK's rocket and missile programs.

I immediately thought of this as well. Thank God for the Yuzhnoye Design Office.

Frankly I wouldn't even call it corruption. More like just vengeance for the way Ukrainian rocket designers were treated over the past thirty years (first having their financing and social support cut from under them by the state, then having their designs pilfered by Western plunderers in the 90s and 2000s, then from 2014 on almost bankrupted entirely and cut off from their colleagues in Russia). Now thanks to Yuzhnoye North Korea has rockets capable of hitting any point in the continental United States. A perfect lesson for Washington of what happens when you spend decades trying to build a client state and proceed to treat it like shit after your coup succeeds.

Dunno how much truth there is to this, but NK has reportedly offered to send "100,000" troops to help aid Russia's war in Ukraine.

These days you can’t help but say that almost anything’s possible, although I find it highly unlikely, especially when you take that prodigious number into account. I don’t even think that it’s technically feasible for the DPRK to devote that many troops. I’d say ten thousand at the most would be possible, but even then probably not worth the hassle.

There are talks though that they may be sending construction shock brigades in order to rebuild the Donbass, but even that is a moot point until the war ends.

Russia rewards DPRK for its friendly gesture: https://ria.ru/20220806/kndr-1807699636.html (saying it doesn't recognize Pyongyang as nuclear power).

I have not heard of this, but I did hear recently some senior lawmaker (I think Volodin) talking about hiring North Koreans to work construction in Russia because they would work three times as fast for less pay.
