North Korea has offered 100,000 "volunteer" troops to the Kremlin to help Russia win the war against Ukraine, according to Russian state media.
"There are reports that 100,000 North Korean volunteers are prepared to come and take part in the conflict," said the Russian military pundit Igor Korotchenko on Channel One Russia, per the New York Post.
Korotchenko praised the North Korean military's "wealth of experience with counter-battery warfare," the newspaper reported.
Effective counter-battery warfare is of increased importance to the Russian military following the US decision to donate a dozen HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems) to Ukraine, military magazine 1945 reported. A military expert told Insider's Sinéad Baker last month, that the long-range, high-precision rockets have made "a massive difference" to Ukraine's war efforts.
