Ukraine investigated itself over N. Korea weapons claims and found itself ‘not guilty’

The matter is far from conclusive

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Ukraine’s working group studying the New York Times article on Ukraine’s involvement in the acquisition of missile technologies by North Korea has confirmed that Kiev was not involved in the alleged transfer, according to the report of the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

On August 14, The New York Times published an article citing an expert analysis and classified assessments by US intelligence agencies, that North Korea’s successful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launches may be due to possibly illicit purchases of missile engines from Ukraine’s state-owned aerospace manufacturer Yuzhmash. A number of Ukrainian officials, in particular Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, have already denied the reports.

“Summarizing the above and taking into account the proposal of the interdepartmental commission and the materials of the state bodies on the issue raised, the working group unanimously came to reasoned conclusions that completely refute Ukraine’s involvement in the implementation of programs for the development of North Korean ballistic missiles,” the report seen by Sputnik says.

At the same time, the report once again accused Russia of its alleged participation in the implementation of North Korean missile programs. It was also noted that the NYT article was an element of distraction of the world community’s attention.

Oh, goodie. Now the US can relax. NK cannot possibly reach the US with their nuclear missiles. Crisis over, time to go home! Not so fast, Banderised and brainwashed Ukraine! The NSA, CIA, DIA, MIA and the rest if the famed and mis-named “17 US intelligence agencies” have some questions for YOU!

The first action must already have been for the US/EU/NATO gang to buy up all the engine parts and equipment and transport the scientists and technicians to Gitmo, or some other safe place like the Antarctica McMurdo base. This factory is in US/EU/NATO controlled Banderised Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk. The UN/US/EU/NATO experts have even visited there, so which idiot messed up? Then, after all the answers have been obtained, Trumpus will have all dirt on Obama and the Democrats, on how their regime change and expansionist plans have lead to NK have the ability to hit Washington with nuclear missiles,… Read more »

Another practice of pride taken from the Yankee rulebook.
Poor Ukraine – one wonders what the ordinary Ukes think about it all.

“Ukraine’s working group … confirmed that Kiev was not involved in the alleged transfer”

Ukraine investigated themselves and found themselves Not-Guilty for selling Missile’s and Missile Technology but concluded that Russia is ‘involved’ …. Hmmm. Ukraine Investigated themselves over MH17 and found themselves Not-Guilty for shooting down MH17 but found that Russia was involved… Hmm. Anyone see a pattern. Seems sort of similar to ‘Russia being responsible for the (Fake) Chemical weapons attacks in Syria. See George Webb on this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCTzFNrsKns I think the poor Europeans are being played here. And played quite badly. How long can they go along with this ruse? Seriously. This stuff is so blatant. Sort of makes me… Read more »

The Ukies are like children: caught with their hands in the cookie jar and they blame someone else.

If they think they are innocent what business it is of yours? Are they a direct “threat” to you? More folks need nukes to keep the US Deep State in check, you should be cheering this on.

Talking of Ukraine, a couple of interesting articles from Fort Russ. The first one, the US, dear ol Volker, are laying down the law to Russia. I guess Volker never bothered to do a bit of research and has no idea many of his countrymen are still waiting to be picked up from Donetsk Airport and the cauldrons of Donbass.

Is the above photo opportunity in the Ukraine Rada a snapshot of Ukrainian democracy in action? Or just the realisation that ousted Ihor Valeriyovych Kolomoyskyi a Ukrainian-Cypriot-Israeli business oligarch and the former Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast cut and ran on a deal with the North Koreans? Dnipropetrovsk Oblast is where the rockets are claimed to have come from. Remember Kolomoyskyi Dnipro, football club owner and gangster was ousted by Poroshenko in a power struggle in March 2015? He subsequently had his bank nationalised for an undisclosed sum to the tax payer. Prior to the fall out Kolomoyskyi had provided his… Read more »

The first words I read “Ukraine’s working group” cracked me up so much, thank you The Duran. It looked more like a grappling group (man with lady) or a punching match. Barrel of laughs.
