US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that the Russian company Parsec, which has come under US sanctions, is a “key source” of goods and technology for North Korea’s missile program. About it reported on the website of the American department.
According to the diplomat, in 2016-2021, a citizen of the DPRK Oh Yeon Ho collaborated with this company and its development director Roman Alar. According to him, the parties discussed issues for the procurement of kevlar thread, aramid fiber, aviation fuel, bearings and high-precision milling machines.
January 12 US Treasury introduced sanctions against Parsek LLC and seven individuals, including Roman Alar and six North Korean citizens who, according to the US authorities, live in Russia, like Oh Yeon Ho, or in China. Restrictions were introduced for violation of the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
