NATO has officially declared Putin’s aggressions against Ukraine a war crime, and more and more information about the details of those crimes are becoming public. On Wednesday, local officials said a theater was bombed in the city of Mariupol by Russian military.

The Mariupol Drama Theater was being used as shelter for hundreds of civilians trying to evade Russia’s attacks. Mariupol deputy mayor Serhiy Orlov told the BBC that nearly 1,200 civilians were seeking shelter inside the building when it was hit.

The number of casualties remains unknown. Mariupol has been under attack and left without electricity, running water or basic necessities. Local officials have recorded over 2,500 deaths since the war began, although speculation is that the number is much higher.

The Associated Press has reported on horrific mass burial holes where citizens have to wrap up bodies in anything they can and dump then quickly in a mass grave in order to quickly get back to safety for themselves.

    Azov division would not let anyone leave the city, using them as shields. Anyone trying
    to leave was shot. Typical MSM comment.

Report: North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia into Ukraine contained components sourced from U.S.

A new report from Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization, determined that a North Korean ballistic missile which was fired by Russia into Ukraine contained “numerous” electronic components sourced from the U.S. and Europe.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on the findings, noting approximately 75% of the 290 components analyzed in the missile originated from U.S.-based companies, and an additional 16% of components came from European firms, according to the CAR report.

The electronic components came from 26 countries in total and were largely utilized in the missile’s navigation system, according to the report. It isn’t clear how the components ended up in North Korea’s possession, as the country is strictly sanctioned by a bulk of the international community, but it’s possible other foreign companies, acting as middlemen, bought the components and then diverted them to the communist country.

However, the fact that North Korea was able to acquire so many American electronic component parts suggests “that the country has developed a robust acquisition network capable of circumventing, without detection, sanction regimes that have been in place for nearly two decades,” according to the report.

CAR documents “weapons at the point of use and track their sources back through the chains of supply.”North Korea gathered the components, assembled the missile and shipped it to Russia, all within a relatively short time period, according to the report. The missile was recovered by CAR on Jan. 2, and the investigators determined it could not have been manufactured before March 2023.

The U.S. government and intelligence agencies are working to stop sensitive American intellectual property from ending up in the hands of several foreign adversaries. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin have strengthened their relationship since Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

“Due in part to our export and sanction controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage, and they’ve been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing in January. “One of those states is North Korea.”
