U.S. intelligence officials said Russia may later try to purchase more military equipment from North Korea.

This comes after the Biden administration announced that the Russian military received Iranian drones in August for its invasion of Ukraine. But last week, the White House said Russia has endured technical problems with the Iranian-manufactured drones.

The North supplying arms to Russia would violate U.N. resolutions banning it from exporting or importing weapons through other countries.
