South Korea sends thousands of artillery to Ukraine through US: Report

Hundreds of thousands of South Korean artillery rounds are on their way to Ukraine via the United States, after Seoul’s initial resistance toward arming Ukraine, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

The Journal, citing unnamed sources, said Seoul had reached a “confidential arrangement” with Washington to transfer the shells to the United States to be delivered to Ukraine, after Washington asked its Asian ally last year for artillery support. [REUTERS]

  1. Seoul will consider the issue of sending ammunition to Ukraine in the future after reviewing the situation "on the ground," South Korean National Security Adviser Cho Tae-yong said Wednesday.

    "We've been providing humanitarian and financial assistance to Ukraine until now ... However, Ukraine came under an illegal invasion. We plan to consider it after monitoring the situation on the ground and in light of other situations," Cho was quoted as telling the South Korean parliamentary House Steering Committee by the Yonhap news agency.

    Cho told the committee that there were no plans to send ammunition to Ukraine directly or via Poland.
