Missile Middle Man

From the Telegraph:

Former members of the Russian military have been secretly helping Iran to acquire technology needed to produce missiles capable of striking European capitals.

The Russians are acting as go-betweens with North Korea as part of a multi-million pound deal they negotiated between Teheran and Pyongyang in 2003. It has enabled Teheran to receive regular clandestine shipments of top secret missile technology, believed to be channelled through Russia.

What diplomatic or economic price or international sanction will there be for Russia for helping two rogue states get together to increase the killing capacity of the one partner that has already stated its intention to nuke Israel, presumably as soon as they can? Thought so.
