North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is expected to travel to Russia this month to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin and discuss the possibility of supplying weapons for the war in Ukraine. The meeting is expected to take place in Vladivostok, on the Pacific Coast of Russia, and Mr. Kim is likely to travel from Pyongyang, probably by armoured train.
The planned trip comes as Russia discusses joint military exercises with North Korea and after Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu tried on a visit to North Korea to convince Pyongyang to sell artillery ammunition to Moscow. The US has warned that North Korea could provide more weapons to Russia, whose forces invaded Ukraine in February 2022 in a war that the US and its European allies oppose and that Moscow calls a “special military operation”.
