North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives in Russia before an expected meeting with Putin

  • North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set to visit Russia at the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This meeting, which was previously denied by both sides, is expected to take place in the coming days in Vladivostok. The visit marks Kim's first known trip outside of North Korea since before the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • The meeting between Kim and Putin could potentially involve discussions on weapons cooperation, with speculations that Russia may seek more supplies of North Korean artillery and ammunition. In exchange, North Korea could request energy, food aid, and advanced weapons technologies. There are concerns that any technology transfers from Russia could increase the threat posed by North Korea's growing nuclear arsenal.
  • The closer relationship between Russia and North Korea has been driven by Putin's need for war assistance and Kim's efforts to strengthen partnerships with traditional allies amid diplomatic isolation. Both countries have blamed the United States for the Ukraine conflict and have blocked efforts to strengthen sanctions on North Korea at the UN Security Council.
