The US has brought the world to the threshold of a nuclear war

Summary of Disinformation

On December 7, the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea issued a statement of the representative of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, the idea of which boils down to the fact that a war with America is unavoidable. […] A cold wind of a nuclear winter blows. It is when radioactive dust and smoke from the fires block the Earth from the warming Sun and all the life on our planet freezes to death in the darkness. We have been brought to this state by the US that is becoming increasingly unpredictable and unskilful in its military operations. It doesn’t coordinate its military plans and major international decisions with anybody, including its own allies. Everybody may become a victim.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation adopting the point of view of a country on whom the United Nations has imposed several sanctions because of its nuclear weapon's programme. See the UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea: https://www.un.org/sc/suborg/en/sanctions/1718/resolutions Both Russia and the United States are permanent members of the UN Security Council.
