Russia - North Korea Relationship


New satellite imagery obtained by The Washington Post shows North Korea shipping weapons to Russia for the war in Ukraine, providing more evidence of the growing wartime link between Pyongyang and Moscow. The pictures, analyzed by the London-based Royal United Services Institute, indicate “not one but two ships have been plying the route between the northeastern North Korean port of Rajin and a secure port facility in Dunai, in Russia’s Far East, making at least five round trips beginning mid-August through Saturday,” the Post’s Michelle Ye Hee Lee and Joyce Sohyun Lee report. The images don’t show what is being transported, but the ships are linked to the Kremlin’s vast military logistics network.
