Kim Jong-un tells his military chiefs to be ready for WW3 amid Ukraine crisis

Kim Jong-un has reportedly told North Korean officials to be ready to mobilise troops after “strong ally Russia” is at war.

The whole world is watching as Vladimir Putin launched an invasion on Ukraine in the early hours of last Thursday morning.

His actions have been blasted by most of the world leaders with strict sanctions being placed on the country.

However, as attacks continue in Ukraine, the North Korean leader has told his soldiers to be ready in case WW3 breaks out.

Speaking to Radio Free Asia (RFA) on February 27, an official from North Pyongan said: “Yesterday, each regional party committee in the province informed all the party members that our strong ally Russia was at war.

“International relations are strained with Russia at war, so the regional party committee demanded that everyone be ready to be mobilised at all times.”

RFA also reported that their sources have seen some residents of North Korea react to the news and were for war breaking out if it would mean this “disgusting system we are living under would come to an end.”

North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spoke out about the country’s stance on Ukraine with the blame being placed on the US and other Western countries.

According to Korea Central News Agency’s (KCNA) English version of the report, a spokesperson for the North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: “The U.S. and the West, in defiance of Russia's reasonable and just demand to provide it with legal guarantee for security, have systematically undermined the security environment of Europe by becoming more blatant in their attempts to deploy attack weapon system [sic] while defiantly pursuing NATO's eastward expansion.

“Having devastated Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, [they] are mouthing phrases about ‘respect for sovereignty’ and ‘territorial integrity’ over the Ukrainian situation which was detonated by themselves. That does not stand to reason at all.”

Fighting continues in Ukraine as Russian forces try to take the capital of the country, Kyiv.

Russia has said its forces have taken control of Kherson in the south of the Ukraine.

This is the first sizable city Russia has taken since the invasion began last week.

Russia has also continued with its bombardments of Ukrainian cities with heavy damage to buildings around the city of Kharkiv.
