South Korean edition: North Korea prepares construction teams to be sent to Donbass

The DPRK is ready to take part in the restoration of the destroyed cities and villages of Donbass, the country's authorities declare their readiness to send construction teams to new Russian regions. It is reported by the South Korean news online newspaper Daily NK.

According to the publication, employees of construction companies were selected in North Korea to be sent to the “Russian-occupied territory of Ukraine” to participate in the restoration of civilian infrastructure destroyed by the war. Sending, if it takes place, will take place in late February - mid-March. Previously, Pyongyang may send in the first batch of 300 to 500 construction workers. But this is not the limit, if necessary, the number of workers can be increased.



In Russia, they do not comment on this publication in any way, so we cannot say whether there is permission to involve North Korean workers in reconstruction work in the Donbass. Previously, Pyongyang directly discussed this issue with Donetsk and Luhansk, but now these are Russian regions and everything is decided through Moscow. However, back in August last year, the head of the Russian government, Marat Khusnullin, who oversees the restoration of the liberated territories, welcomed the involvement of builders from the DPRK in this process. As stated, North Korean specialists work very well and their prices are low.

Last summer, representatives of Donetsk and Luhansk negotiated with Pyongyang for help, the DPRK authorities promised to do everything possible to restore the Donbass. It was noted that North Korea was famous for its highly skilled builders who worked in many countries. This practice almost came to naught after the United States imposed economic sanctions against the DPRK.

At present, significant forces have been involved in the construction of facilities on the territory of the new constituent entities of the Russian Federation, work is going on around the clock, but help from the DPRK will not be superfluous.

      Finally! We have been waiting for this decision for a long time. For starters, a couple of three divisions of volunteer military builders. Donbass really needs working hands and warm hearts of true friends. And Russia will provide military builders from North Korea with the necessary weapons. equipment, translators and command. Let's save Donbass together.

        Once a Korean team worked for a subcontractor, they did brickwork. Our price was bent, but the estimate did not allow. Koreans, even taking into account the services of a "pimp", were 30% cheaper. They worked quickly, coherently and quite qualitatively.

          A neighbor hired Korean tilers to lay tiles in the bathroom and toilet. They did it twice cheaper than our tilers, they did it twice as fast, they did it with high quality. They worked on weekends, asked for leave from their foreman. It was in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk about 12 years ago

      These do the job and do it well. In the 90s in Khabarovsk, Dalspetsstroy used builders from the DPRK for the construction of civilian facilities - excellent hard workers, strict discipline, diligence, which is worth learning from. Naturally, there are some bells and whistles - with each brigade there is a certain "captain" and obviously a representative of the DPRK MOB, the selection in Korea is very strict, after returning to their homeland, quarantine (they said up to a year).

          I was born and raised in Primorye, therefore, Koreans are always with us side by side. Practically the same as all Russians. Only with a slight difference - they know how to cook very tasty and original. And also great specialists in growing vegetables.

      It is remarkable in itself that our real allies turn out to be mainly the "leftists", on whose idea we have been officially pissing for 30+ years. the same rallies in Europe against the supply of weapons (Greece, Italy) were organized by the left. And our right-wing friends, the Lipens and Meloni (how much noise there was) are ready to drive the weapons further.

        1) That is, to violate the sanctions of the UN Security Council, of which Russia is a permanent member.
        2) Kim has nothing special to pay. You offer essentially the old scheme, when the USSR contained Cuba, Eastern European allies and other friends.
        It will be a one-sided game.
        3) and probably the most important thing: The supply of weapons to the DPRK promises bad prospects in relations with South Korea. According to the results of pre-war 2021, the economy of the Republic of Korea amounted to $1,8 trillion, the economy of the Russian Federation was $1,7 trillion. That is, even before the NWO, the economy of South Korea was larger than the Russian one. Defense spending $50 billion. The Republic of Korea is a major arms manufacturer, already squeezing out the United States in the European arms market. And not only tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and self-propelled guns, but also missile weapons. Won Poland ordered about 300 K-239 missile systems, the states did not pull such an order. They would not have delivered 300 Hymars in 10 years. Koreans quickly rivet, and much cheaper.
        And if you start supplying weapons to the DPRK, there is no doubt that at least the southerners will begin to give their junk from the storage bases to the ukrams. Well, all sorts of t-80s that they received for debts too.
        Korea is almost the only pro-American country that has not joined in the supply of weapons to Ukrainians and sanctions against Russia. Deliveries of semiconductors for civilian industries are still ongoing. But everything can change.

        It's a "good idea" to start supplying weapons to another country, essentially for free, when you yourself don't have enough. At the same time get a lot of other problems.
        And for what?????
        To annoy the Americans?

        Genius plan.

        Korea does not climb into the Donbass, and Russia should not climb into Korea.

      Strange, did they not remember Russia, or did she herself not burn with the desire to restore? Although the history of the last eight years and the Crimea leads to sad thoughts.
