Disinfo: Kyiv admits Ukrainian parts in North Korea missile engines

Summary

Kyiv had admitted Ukrainian components are present in North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile engines.

Disproof

Ukrainian UN mission spokesman Oleh Nikolenko said the information was completely false. “This is just another Russian fake aimed at not only discrediting Ukraine but compromising the UN as well. Ukraine has never had any involvement in the North Korean missile program” Nikolenko said.

Dmitry Kiku, a Russian national, is indeed a UN expert on North Korea sanctions and his name appears on the latest UN Panel of Experts report on the North Korean missile program. However, there is absolutely nothing in the report about Ukraine’s admission of providing North Korea with engine parts. Paragraphs 14 through 16 of this report clearly state that Ukraine’s capacity to produce such engines was dismantled in 1994 and that Kyiv had never entered into any talks or deals with North Korea involving engine parts.

Ukraine’s UN mission pointed out the fallacy of Dmitry Kiku’s claims in its official Twitter feed, called the RT story based on his misrepresentation a fake and called on the public to read the UN Panel of experts report, particularly paragraphs 14 through 16.

On Saturday, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

The White Helmets ready to kill children for a realistic picture

The Douma chemical attack footage is a fake by the White Helmets. Maybe naked and wet kids are shivering because it is cold. Some of the kids are maybe unconscious, or maybe they are just sleeping. It is good if the photos of the victims are just staged and people did not get killed for the footage. NGO Swedish Doctors has accused the White Helmets of killing children for a realistic picture.
