Information about the fall of a missile launched by North Korea on July 12 in Russia’s exclusive economic zone has no supporting data, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Telegram channel on July 14.

“First of all, there is no confirming data about the fall in our exclusive economic zone at the moment,” Zakharova said, commenting on the relevant United Nations (UN) statement

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman found it reassuring that the UN had an opportunity to determine the direction of the missiles’ flight, given Ukraine’s shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.

“Given such certainty and promptness, we hope to soon receive from the Secretariat the long-awaited answer to the question: who is shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant?” Zakharova concluded.

On July 12, UN Assistant Secretary General Khaled Khiari said that the DPRK-launched missile fell in the waters of the Sea of Japan in Russia’s exclusive economic zone, covering a distance of 1,001.2 km in 74 minutes.
