Ukraine Condemns North Korea's Attempt to Launch a Space Reconnaissance Satellite

Ukraine expressed its concern about another attempt by North Korea to launch a rocket carrying a reconnaissance satellite.

“We strongly condemn Pyongyang's repeated violations of international law and relevant UN Security Council resolutions,” stated the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

The Ministry called for increased pressure from the international community on Pyongyang to comply with international law and ensure stability and security on the Korean Peninsula.

“Such actions, as well as the provision of military assistance by the North Korean regime to Russia in the war against Ukraine, have the consequence of a significant deterioration of the security situation in the region and in the world,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs added.

On Monday, North Korea attempted to launch its second spy satellite into orbit. This attempt was unsuccessful, as the newly developed rocket engine exploded during flight.
