Ottawa: After the United States accused North Korea of supplying battlefield missiles and rockets to the Russian, Canada has strongly condemned this move and said that it unequivocally condemns North Korea’s complicity in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war of choice against Ukraine and its delivery of arms to the Wagner Group, a brutal private military organization supporting Russia’s illegal invasion.

Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, said, “The collaboration between North Korea’s dictatorship and the Wagner Group clearly violates international law and United Nations Security Council resolutions.”

She said that Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine is a failure, and the Russian regime is a global pariah. Striking a deal with the brutal North Korean dictatorship is only proof of Russia’s growing isolation on the world stage and of the dire state of its war machine.

US officials said that fighters from the mercenary group have ballooned from 1,000 to nearly 20,000 in Ukraine.

“Canada has already imposed severe sanctions on the Russian regime, including on the Wagner Group, as well as sweeping and comprehensive sanctions on the North Korean dictatorship. We will continue to work with international partners to address these developments and respond to further arms deliveries should they take place, Mélanie Joly said.
