For the first time, South Korea will sell artillery shells to the United States in order to send them to Ukraine.
This is reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The material says that these supplies will be part of a "secret agreement" between Washington and Seoul.
The terms of the agreement are not mentioned. The newspaper's interlocutors claim that the United States plans to purchase about 100,000 artillery shells to be sent to Ukraine.
According to Washington's calculations, this number will be enough to conduct intensive hostilities for several weeks.
According to officials, the indirect shipment of ammunition through the States allows Seoul to formally remain within the framework of its commitment not to supply Ukraine with weapons.
At this time, Washington will be able to avoid wasting its own arsenal of weapons.
