North Korea has expanded and reorganized many military units. According to the Central Telegraph Agency (KCNA), this is due to "a new security situation".

"The units of the People's Army have been expanded, the strategic and tactical missions of all units have also changed", - Kommersant reports.

In addition, new military banners were introduced in the DPRK. They have already been demonstrated to the public during a military parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army. The event took place last week.

Pyongyang allocated 15.9% of the budget for defense needs in 2022 and 2023. In 2022, the DPRK carried out several missile tests, and also announced the creation of nuclear weapons. At the end of last year, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called for increasing the defense capability of the army.
