Ukrainian government denies giving engines to North Korea
Posted: Sun, Aug 27, 2017, 10:13 AM ET (1413 GMT)
An investigation by the Ukrainian government has concluded the country did not transfer engine technology to North Korea. Oleksandr Turchynov, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, informed Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in a letter Tuesday that Ukrainian technology did not assist North Korea's missile program. The letter stated that the RD-250 engine that was the focus of a report last week by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) had not been produced in Ukraine since 1991, and that inventories of the engine have been accounted for. The letter also criticized Russia for carrying out a disinformation campaign against Ukraine and suggested the IISS report's author, Michael Elleman, "was cynically used by Russian special services" in that effort.
