North Korea's rocket engine is "probably" from Ukraine

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017 | World News

North Korea has owed its rapid progress in rocket technology, according to a study of technology from the Ukraine. This is evident from a study published by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in Washington on Monday.

The government in Kiev, as well as the company Jushmash, mentioned in the study, strongly rejected the information.

IISS expert Michael Elleman told the New York Times that it was "likely" that the drive for the new North Korean medium-range and intercontinental missiles came from a Ukrainian company. He had "come illegally" through arms dealers to North Korea.

  Elleman evaluated among other things photos of the North Korean government from the recent rocket launch. They suggested that the Hwasong-12 and Hwasong-14 rockets had a propulsion system based on a Soviet model.

At the beginning of July, Pyongyang had tested a long-range rocket, which theoretically could have reached the US territory of Alaska. In reaction, the international community had tightened the sanctions against the East Asian country.

"Anti-Ukrainian campaign"
Corresponding drives had been produced earlier in the company of Yushmash in the city of Dnipro, which is now located in Ukraine. According to Elleman, the propulsion system was further developed, so that North Korea with its missiles achieved as high a range as possible.

The company Juschmash stressed that it had no connections to North Korea and no longer produced the components since the independence of the Ukraine. The Security and Defense Council of Ukraine stated that it was an "anti-Ukrainian campaign launched by Russian intelligence agencies" to conceal its own involvement in the North Korean program.
