      In the DPRK, with secrecy, things are the same as in the past in the Union. Nothing was said about the missiles from the side, experts can only make assumptions
      The short-range guided missiles launched by the DPRK could be a modification of anti-ship missiles or KN-02 missiles, which are a derivative of the Soviet SS-21 missile (RC "Tochka") with a range of up to 120 kilometers, Renhap reported, citing an unnamed representative of the South Korean defense departments.

    DPRK Yapam presented claims and monetary compensation for the atrocities of the Japanese troops. So they back up their claims with "muscles". We are waiting for the continuation, maybe they will bargain for something
    The DPRK demanded that the Japanese authorities "apologize and pay compensation for the heinous crimes committed during the period of colonial rule in Korea in 1910-1945," the article said on Monday in the DPRK's leading newspaper Nodong Sinmun.

    It is hoped that these eccentrics will not start firing their rockets in the neighbors. And then they have ambitions, but it can start that it will fall into everyone’s. Including us and America.

    I remember the fable of I.A. Krylova "Elephant and Pug". However, this Pug has already gotten it with its barking! To her booth! Or in the tale of L.N. Tolstoy's "The Lion and the Dog".
