Dmitry Rogozin, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia commented on reports about the “copying” of Ukrainian rocket engines by North Korea.
“What do you mean copies of engines? It’s not a painting or a sculpture. In order to make a copy, you must have either the original engine or its detailed drawings. Yes, and without Ukrainian specialists, capable and ready to deploy production on a foreign technological platform, can not do. Anyway, it’s about smuggling in order to bypass all existing international prohibitions, “Rogozin wrote in a series of posts on Twitter.
Earlier representatives of the Ukrainian plant “Yuzhmash” did not exclude that their rocket engines could be copied for use in the DPRK.
