      Well, not everything is so bad. You just can’t indulge in a nuclear baton. Because North Korea didn’t threaten anything before. Putin showed our concern. But for some reason, Pakistan and Israel (secretly) have it. And they are US allies. So smacks of a double standard from Russia.

        The other day, Pyongyang recognized Crimea as part of Russia, and we are imposing sanctions against the DPRK, speaking on the side of our sworn "partners."
        Here is such a thank you.

            Who recognized Crimea as a part of Russia in the world (List of countries)
            March 19, 2014, 14:03
            So, here is a list of countries that consider the agreement on the "accession" of Crimea to the Russian Federation legal: Russia itself, Kazakhastan (part of the Customs Union) and unrecognized Abkhazia.
            Several more states do not say anything about this document, but consider the Crimean "referendum" legitimate. These are Venezuela, North Korea (DPRK) and Syria.

              Only for some reason, Pakistan, Israel (secretly) can have it. And they are allies of the United States. So it smells of a double standard from Russia.

              About Pakistan, this is a very good question, only for some reason you forget that India has nuclear weapons, and this balances the military potentials of both, and there are no big hot wars in that region.
              But if we admit the presence of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, then it will appear in South Korea and Japan. Therefore, it is one thing to condescendingly look at the strong Japanese fleet and the markedly increasing capabilities of their army, having in the arsenal of nuclear weapons. And it is a completely different thing if the Japanese stick to their submarines nuclear missiles.

        THIS IS OUR WEAKNESS at all costs to escape from US pressure- setting false goals.
        In China, by playing against the DPRK, China resolves its trade deficit issues with the United States.
        So far, all players are satisfied with themselves. then we will need "another Libya." - EVERY US PRESIDENT SHOULD (AND BRING) A NEW CONQUERED COUNTRY TO THE WORLD CAPITAL (?) TO EXTEND THE SALES AND PLACE CAPITALS

      The introduction of sanctions against the DPRK by Russia is the support of international terrorists represented by mattresses. We all perfectly understand that the development of nuclear weapons and the testing of their carriers is a way to protect them from the international "bandit". In general, we should be ashamed of such a betrayal of our even former friends. Although they turned out to be former again because of our betrayal.

      All of these joining the sanctions word. In fact, I see North Korean workers in the Far East. They didn’t go anywhere and their quotas were increased. There is a game and Russia will support North Korea for geopolitical reasons.

      And when in the modern history of Russia this power came with the PEOPLE, compare how a simple PEOPLE lives and how the power lives. Here is the power of the UAE or Qatar, which earns billions of $, lives very well, but it worries about its people and the people live well too. Look at the standard of living of these Arabian monarchies and ours. And according to the DPRK, they could simply abstain, no, it is necessary for the Washington Regional Committee to lick one place, pah disgusting.
