Putin vows support for North Korea’s fight for independence

Moscow will continue to support Pyongyang in its fight for independence, Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote in an article for the Rodong Sinmun newspaper on the eve of his state visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

He noted that Washington keeps setting obviously unacceptable requirements, while North Korea has repeatedly expressed its intention to resolve all the existing differences by peaceful means.

"Russia has incessantly supported and will support the DPRK and the heroic Korean people in their struggle against the treacherous, dangerous and aggressive enemy, in their fight for independence, identity and the right to freely choose their development path," Putin stressed.


  1. Media briefings, foreign intelligence sources and even satellite imagery showing preparations in Pyongyang – there was just enough information to keep speculation high that President Putin’s trip to North Korea was about to happen.

  2. Pyongyang is all decked out to welcome Putin, with the city's streets lined with Russian flags and portraits of Putin.

    Images and footage shared by the Russian state-owned news agency RIA Novosti show a banner welcoming Putin along the freeway, lined with North Korean propaganda posters.

    "The friendship between North Korea and Russia is eternal," reads one banner outside Pyongyang’s Sunan International Airport.

    "We warmly welcome comrade Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin," says another.

  3. North Korean state television broadcaster KCTV is currently broadcasting concerts of Russian military and pro-war music on air, ahead of Putin's visit.

    The Russian leader is expected to arrive in North Korea later this evening.

  4. Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that the US seeks to impose a new colonial order on the world and is trying to weaken the Russian economy through new sanctions and stirring up social and political tension within the country, but all its attempts to contain or isolate Russia from the world have failed.

    In an article for the Democratic Korea’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper titled “Russia and Democratic Korea: A Tradition of Friendship and Cooperation Over the Years,” Putin said, “The United States wants to impose a new colonial dictatorial order on the world”.

    Putin noted that the countries that do not agree with the American approach face severe external pressure.

    “Russia highly appreciates the DPRK’s firm support for the special operation, its solidarity with us on key international issues, and its readiness to defend common priorities and views at the UN”, Putin said.

  5. Диктор британского телеканала Sky News перепутал визит президента России Владимира Путина в Якутию с запланированным визитом в КНДР. Пост с ошибкой диктора был размещен в социальной сети X.

    «Срочные кадры, Путин прилетел в Северную Корею», - заявил диктор, сопровождая видеоряд прибытия президента РФ в Якутск.
