DPRK slams Zelensky for displays of "incurable megalomania"
This comes after the Kiev regime issued a petition on the website of the Ukrainian president’s office to acquire nukes from the US.
The DPRK's Deputy Department Director of the Publicity and Information of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Kim Yo-jong on Sunday slammed the Zelensky regime for displays of "incurable megalomania" and "incurring a nuclear disaster" by thinking that Ukraine could defeat Russia.
This comes after Ukraine issued a petition on the website of the president’s office to acquire nukes from the US.
"Zelensky's talk about the introduction of US nuclear weapons and the independent development of nuclear weapons is a manifestation of his very dangerous political ambition to prolong his remaining days at any cost by gambling with the destiny of his country and people," Kim said.
She also commented that the Ukrainian leadership is displaying signs of "incurable megalomania" and that it was "incurring a nuclear disaster threatening their existence" through the belief that it can defeat Russia.

On March 26, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow has struck a deal with Belarus to station tactical nuclear weapons on its territory, pledging that his country will not violate non-proliferation agreements.
Putin also revealed that his country has already deployed 10 nuclear-capable aircraft in its neighbor country and that by July 1, Russia will complete the construction of a facility in Belarus to store the tactical nuclear arms, stressing that the control of the weapons will not be transferred to Minsk.

Russia's leader emphasized that this measure will be similar to the United States' deployment of some of its nuclear arsenal in Europe which has been going on for decades.
The decision to station nukes in Belarus followed the UK's announcement to supply Kiev with ammunitions of depleted uranium to be used in combat along with Challenger 2 tanks.
Radiation emitted from the ammunition is known to have caused spikes in birth defects and cancer cases in the aftermath of Libya and Iraq's invasions.
Putin said that Russia would be "forced to react accordingly" to the use of "weapons with a nuclear component."
Despite innumerable contamination cases, both the UK and the US still deny the existence of a link between the use of depleted uranium and cancer.
