The US Radio Free Asia reported that North Korea has been making winter military uniforms and winter boots for Russian soldiers sent to Ukraine for a month to earn foreign currency.
According to Radio Free Asia, cloth was delivered to North Korea across the border from Russia, and the size of the order is large.
The US State Department has not ruled out this possibility.

According to UN Security Council Resolution 2375 adopted in September 2017, textile exports from North Korea are banned.
The US State Department also emphasized that “North Korea is trying to hide weapons and provide them to Russia,” in clear violation of sanctions.

Earlier this month, the White House announced that it had information that North Korea was trying to hide and deliver a significant amount of shells to Russia through a third country.
