Western politicians and experts suddenly became wary of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's visit to Pyongyang. Recall that the Russian delegation headed by the minister was invited to Pyongyang on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of the war on the Korean Peninsula. In the historiography of the DPRK, this event is designated as the Victory Day of the Korean people in the Patriotic Liberation War of 1950-1953.
During the hours that Sergei Shoigu has so far spent in the North Korean capital, he laid flowers at the monuments erected in honor of the liberation of Korea. The monument in Pyongyang appeared in 1946 as a token of gratitude to Soviet soldiers for the liberation of the country from Japanese occupation. Sergei Shoigu also laid baskets of flowers at the monuments to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. The Russian Minister of Defense in Pyongyang is holding talks with his Korean counterpart Kang Sun Nam.
From the statement of the head of the Russian defense department:
Nice to meet and get to know you. I accepted with gratitude your invitation to visit Pyongyang, the capital of our friendly state. I am grateful to Korean friends for the proposed rich program. From the first minutes I felt your care and your attention. It is possible not only to work actively, but also to learn a lot of interesting things about the DPRK, your culture, traditions and sights. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is an important partner of Russia, with whom we share a common border and rich story cooperation.
In turn, Kang Soon Nam noted that he was glad to meet with Sergei Shoigu, and expressed the hope that ties in various fields, including the security sphere, between the DPRK and Russia would be strengthened.
Western and Ukrainian politicians openly fear that the DPRK will begin "large deliveries of military aid to Russia." Particular concerns about this in the United States, the European Union and in the camp of the Kyiv regime are associated with the "possibility of North Korea to supply Russia with large volumes of ammunition." The American, European and Ukrainian press believe that such deliveries are possible and that they "may significantly change the situation at the front."
Even if such supplies are possible, the main question is: what does the West care about, which is actively arming the neo-Nazi Kiev regime, using Ukraine for its own purposes?
