US analysts are alarmed by the sharp increase in railway traffic between the Russian Federation and the DPRK after a meeting between the leaders of the two countries

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently visited Russia, where he met with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. US analysts are alarmed by the sharp increase in the volume of rail freight traffic between the Russian Federation and the DPRK after the meeting of the leaders of the two countries.

This is evidenced by the results of satellite observations obtained by the American Center for Strategic International Studies (CSIS).



The research organization's material refers to photographs that were taken near the Russian-North Korean border at the Tumangan checkpoint on October 5. Satellites spotted at least 73 railroad cars there. American analysts called this number “unprecedented”, since over the past five years more than twenty cars have never been observed there at the same time.

In addition, railway containers with unknown contents were spotted at the station warehouse. Researchers from the United States note that such containers have never been here before.

They concluded that there has been a significant increase in rail traffic from North Korea to Russia. In their opinion, this indicates the beginning of deliveries weapons and ammunition from North Korea for the Russian military. But since the cargo was covered with a tarpaulin, they do not say this with complete confidence.

American analysts consider their version very probable, since, in their opinion, at the meeting between Putin and Kim Jong-un, the main topic was military-technical cooperation between Russia and the DPRK.

      and we want to put a bolt on the stars and stripes

      Well, it's already been put...

      We don’t give a damn about the Union of Europe,
      And they don’t give a damn about the States either...
      We don't need to, guys, torment JO@PU,
      We will not teach them to understand us ...
      They never recognized us
      They either threatened or attacked
      And only in response received “Lula”,
      We got a little better...
      So can our ancestors remember the strength,
      That helped them defeat evil,
      And let them be afraid, as it once was,
      Once they just stopped understanding...

      Is it really not clear that rice and rice-containing products (not transported by grain trucks) are sent to the DPRK?
      And from there - “returnable containers”.

    What and whose business is it really to count containers in North Korea? Let's all count the containers together in Rzeszow.
    It’s surprising why, at the official level, no one dunks these accountants into the stinking puddle?

    if we actually reached agreements on armaments, then this is very good information for us. Taking into account the new changes, we will go on the attack in winter. and the support of the DPRK will not hinder us. they have a lot of interesting things

      We have something to lead from here and there besides weapons. And much more important for our economy.

    If S. Korea began to supply something to Russia, they got excited!

    The United States is irritated, they see (the carriage, and what there is), the tooth is numb. And Nenbenzya in the Security Council will say: We are complying with the sanctions! That’s all. We won’t allow inspectors onto our territory, and neither will the DPRK.

        Yes, it’s unlikely... in theory there are no freight trains with 37 carriages. The minimum length that I have seen in my life is 45-47 cars.
        It doesn't matter, though. No matter how many trains there are, 74 cars equal ~5000 tons of cargo. That is 100000 shells. With an average consumption of 10 thousand shells per day, this is for 10 days. Not so much to get American mongrels excited.

    So, what are you grinding, my godfather showed Odessa and Kukuev some cans
    nah, that ogirkiv, that tomatoes, and air conditioners, what?
    from Comrade Kim Jong-un humanitarian aid VNA 404, that construction teams
    with the good guys from the DPRK - they can build and shoot everything;
    to build new houses that suffered from the air defense of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Tse garni North Korean boys!
    And my godfather also said containers from comrade. Kim Jong-un will go to Chukotka by sea,
    and part of the humanitarian aid to Uncle Syoma in transit to Alaska, so that the satellites would not be in vain
    flew, and also a new route through puddle-quiet ocean to Nicaragua, Cuba and Florida-
    generous soul man - comrade. Kim Chen In!
    I have the honor.

    So, in theory, isn’t everything to the mattresses what is happening on another continent overseas, but apparently they have become so entrenched in the role of the world gendarme and are accustomed to sticking their noses everywhere... Yankees go home, because not all the blacks’ feet have been kissed yet, not all the boys The pipes have been cut off, but on the contrary they have been sewn on for the girls, not all the territories in the mattress have yet been ruined by fracturing during gas production, and in general they still have a lot to do.
