According to the South Korean military, an unidentified ammunition was launched at about 8:10 (2:10 Moscow time) on January 5, 2022 from a ground installation in the direction of the Sea of ​​Japan. It is assumed that this is a ballistic missile that, having flown a certain distance, sank in its water area, there is no other information at the moment. Seoul said that South Korean intelligence is working with the Americans to obtain new information.

Japan has confirmed the launch of an unidentified ammunition from the DPRK and has already convened an emergency meeting of the response team. In Tokyo, it is believed that the launched ammunition is a ballistic missile that flew about 500 kilometers and fell into the Sea of ​​Japan.

    Well done Koreans, they don't make excuses to anyone, they just do their job. Some leaders need to learn from them.

      Some leaders are not capable of learning in principle ... except for empty exclamations at the UN, they can not utter anything.
      A NN is slowly and surely providing North Korea's military security with affordable means.
      Most likely studying the possibility of delivering nuclear weapons using ballistic missiles ... apparently very successful.

      In connection with the threat of food shortages, the DPRK appealed to the UN with a request to provide humanitarian assistance to the country

      This year, Russia turned out to be the main donor of humanitarian aid to North Korea, providing about $ XNUMX million for these needs to the UN structures that work with the DPRK.

      April 2021
      The UN World Food Program continues to supply humanitarian aid to the DPRK despite certain obstacles, the last delivery took place in March 2021

      And tydy.
      But of course the ammunition is fired without notifying the "partners", Maladians.

        Unlike Russia, the DPRK does not sit on gas, oil and other wealth. Throughout their existence, they are under severe sanctions. With this artificially created hunger, the North Korean people are being strangled by international "partners", at the suggestion of the United States - the world's chief gendarme and robber in one person

          Do like the DPRK - get sanctions like the DPRK, no?
          And then we do not have sanctions, but simply rivers of milk and jelly banks on the wealth of sidyuchi.

          The United States has received an official request from Russia for additional food aid this year, US Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman said in Washington. As reported by RIA Novosti, this request is currently being studied by the American side.

          It was necessary, like the Koreans, to push something intercontinental into the Atlantic Ocean and to pile up special ammunition on Novaya Zemlya ...

      In fact, in light of the mutual rapprochement between the two Koreas, these launches and the presence of nuclear weapons will give the North Koreans huge advantages in choosing a system of governance for a single country in the future. It is naive to believe that South Koreans do not dream of becoming a nuclear country with ballistic missiles, realizing that they will immediately raise their status on the world stage.
      I think it is not for nothing that Japan is most indignant of all, which realistically understands that they cannot survive without the United States, which means that they will still have to endure American bases for decades. But the South Koreans will be able to get rid of them as soon as the unification takes place, and the leaders of the two Koreas understand this.
      In this case, two eastern tricks clashed, and everyone here is for himself, but the North Koreans have more trump cards in their hands, which is why they are the main players in this region.

        Not even close. You just ascribed to the South Koreans your own sense of the injustice of the world order, which makes you want to resist it with a nuclear bomb and missiles. This is called https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projection_(psychology)

        But South Koreans don't even have such a feeling, they live in comfort and prosperity, and the world order, which gives them such an opportunity, is perceived as just and reasonably arranged. They want to cooperate with such a surrounding world and travel around it, and not threaten with something, trying to assert themselves in such a way.

          Not even close.

          How, then, can this be explained?
          Attempts to reunite
          In 1972, the two countries met secretly to chart an agreement on a possible reunification. However, the coalition disbanded the following year. The two countries met again in 1990, 2000 and 2007, but each time did not reach a resolution. In 2000, 2004 and 2006, the international community found hope for future reunification efforts following the reunification of the Korean team at the Olympics (although the countries competed separately).

          In recent years, South Korean President Park Gun-hye has pushed for reunification and argued that the long-awaited merger would be a boon to South Korea's financial and technology sectors due to North Korea's wealth of human and natural resources. In July 2014, the South Korean president appointed a special committee to prepare for a possible unification between the two countries. Despite the potential economic benefits, there are a number of political, financial and social costs to overcome in order to make reunification possible.

          True, this is not entirely fresh material, but the trend cannot be hidden, and it is unlikely that it has changed now.

          They want to cooperate with such a surrounding world and travel through it, and not threaten with something, trying to assert themselves in such a way.

          This does not mean that even young people do not want reunification, even if not all:
          In the same poll, South Koreans did not appear to be particularly keen on reunification. A total of 25% of respondents said: “We need to reunite as soon as possible. “Meanwhile, 8% said that“ although reunification is necessary, there is no need to rush. “About 45% of those surveyed had negative or indifferent feelings about reunification. According to the survey, 8% said, “Reunion is not absolutely necessary” and 30% said, “I am indifferent to reunion. "
          Meanwhile, the reunification is supported by the hope that younger generations of South Koreans see it as an important step in their future. However, in the same survey of South Koreans aged 19-29, only 28,5% said that “reunification is very important. “Another 24% said that it is not that important, while 5% said that reunification does not matter at all.

            The talks about the reunification of Koreas are intra-family conversations about what to do with a relative who has gone from the difficult vicissitudes of life, who at the same time can stab him with a fork at any moment, but at the same time is not a stranger, and humanly feel sorry for him. This is not talk at all about greatness, international status, geopolitics, opposition to the world.

    The northerners go their own way, perhaps even the Juche. The Merikatos have lagged behind them, the southerners will not move a millimeter towards the northerners without a command.
