North Korean soldier shot colleagues and fled to South Korea

North Korean soldier shot colleagues and fled to South Korea

A North Korean soldier shot two of his commanders, crossed the border and went over to the side of South Korea. The incident was reported by the official representative of the Committee of Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Korea.

The soldier crossed the military-demarcation line in the western sector of the demilitarized zone of the DMZ separating the two Koreas in 12: 10 in local time and four minutes later went into the South Korean border post. At that moment he was without weapons. Shortly before this, the South Korean patrol heard six shots, ITAR-TASS reports.

Before the detention, the servicemen used a loudspeaker to make sure that the defector was going to go to the South, and then brought him to the location of the unit.

During interrogation by the investigators, a North Korean soldier, whose military rank was not disclosed, confirmed that he had shot down the commanders of his platoon and company before escaping. Now military counterintelligence and representatives of the National Intelligence Service of the Republic of Kazakhstan are investigating all the circumstances of the escape.

South Korean border guards also confirmed that the DPRK military brought two bodies to their guard post. Posts northerners and southerners share the entire 500 meters.

After this state of emergency, the South Korean side intensified its observation of the situation, however, nothing unusual was observed on the northern side of the border.

The escape through the DMZ, which is one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world, is happening, according to the KNS representative, "extremely rarely." The last time a deserted DPRK soldier crossed the inter-Korean border in its eastern sector was in March 2010.

    He is a traitor. They were at all times. Apparently, this phenomenon was not spared by North Korea. I am for destroying such as militants or traitors to the motherland.

        What if this is the first bird? I think the army feeds better than a civilian. He didn’t even think about his relatives ... Now they will have a hard time. Southerners do not want to aggravate relations ... they can also turn them back in, then they will give him kirdyk. Politicians will decide everything themselves.

        There will be nothing to him. Each such escape to the southerners is only a plus. Moreover, laws in the south do not imply the issuance of defectors. They will take off the information (although it is unlikely that he knows a lot), give another name and surname and send him deeper into the country. It is likely in six months will be to collect cell phones on the conveyor. Or cars.

          I watched a film about such defectors. There they weep and ask for back. Not one has taken root. So, what about a happy collector of cars and phones - perhaps, but not a fact.

    For me, he is a traitor to me, like Suvorov, Belenko and other *****, but I can theoretically assume that the soldier is just such a "dissent" ...
    But why kill people ........................ So one road, to the scaffold!

    The soldier will now explain his deed with a craving for democracies and a struggle against a totalitarian regime.

    The poor fellow wanted to eat. As in advertising: "You need to feed better - they will not fly away"

    The information is clearly propaganda in nature, they say, look at what soldiers the northerners have. Betrayal on the face.

    I don't know ... if I were an investigator of the military police of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the first thing I would think is that this is a sent Cossack. The trick is not complicated. The border guards of the Republic of Kazakhstan heard six shots, but did not see who. The bodies were also not checked at what time their heart stopped. And so on and so forth. Therefore, I would not be in a hurry to accuse this serviceman of simply “selling out for money”.

      Everything is very simple in the south, there is nothing to eat, but there is no all-round .... ECONOMY as such in the north is not !!!! The whole economy is in the south !!!! SAMSUNG, DEO, HENDAI, ZIK, KIA ... everything is in the south. ... and in the north there is famine and a fascist state! here is the answer

        It's even easier. His colleagues could not let him go. This means that plan "B" is included in the action, but even if they were released, the authorities bully they wouldn’t be killed so easily, they were tortured together with their families, and they would die for weeks, and they got off cheaply. Together at the funeral, surely came posthumous awards and coupons for additional rations, as to families of heroes soldier ... I remember somewhere this has already passed.

      There is a whole group of reverse defectors - those who had previously escaped from the UK again returned there.
      They could not find work in the South and they are not shot at home, but are used for propaganda purposes.

      Of course, this does not mean that we are being deceived, and there, in fact, paradise life.

      According to official 10 data, Soviet Air Force pilots hijacked aircraft in the countries of Zap. Europe and Japan. The loudest ones are the theft of the Tu-2 in Linz (1947 year), the theft of Li-2 on about. Hokkaido (1947 year), the hijacking of the MiG-25 Belenko, the hijacking of the MiG-29 at Inzherlik AFB, the hijacking of Su-9 aircraft in Germany and the hijacking of the MiG to Iran at an American base from a military school

      And for some reason not a single Phantom arrived in the USSR ...

        Malekh is not a topic, but I’ll say, in Helena’s memoirs I read that at 49 Müller was seen in Moscow. If this is true, then in a cooler flight all taken together.
