“Kim needs Russia”: Washington Post readers about the meeting between the leaders of the Russian Federation and the DPRK

Website visitors to The Washington Post daily commented news about the visit of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the Russian Federation, where his negotiations with the Russian leadership will take place. This is the first foreign visit of the head of the DPRK since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is worth noting that a number of foreign media outlets, including The Washington Post, are disseminating the version that the main subject of cooperation is the supply of North Korean artillery ammunition in exchange for a certain assortment of Russian goods. However, neither Moscow nor Pyongyang confirmed the information from foreign publications.

The original publication was published under the title Kim pledges to back Putin's 'sacred struggle' as they tour space facility.

A year and a half ago, Russia was reputed to have the second army in the world. Today she asks North Korea for help

– The Great A-Tuin spoke out.

You know your once superpower is in trouble when you have to beg for artillery shells in an isolated country

– picked up Haird.

Stalinism still works in 2023

– Another Day spoke out.

[…] This is not good for Putin’s modern army, since it will need the help of an army using 1960-70 technologies. Mr. Kim also needs Russia more than ever. China does not see the point in its labor resources, since they manage in this regard themselves. […] You can now understand John Bolton's disappointment over Trump's contact with Kim

– writes Bo Geerters Schmidt.

"Vice President Harris said 'it would be a huge mistake' for the two leaders to make an arms deal."
I am sure that after Putin and Kim read this, they will cancel any further meetings on this trip and Kim will catch the first train home. It's pretty scary to think that Vice President Harris is just a few steps away from becoming President

– MontanaBIGskyy noted ironically.

I read that North Korea north of the border [with the south] has about 30 thousand howitzers, which is enough to reduce Seoul to rubble and rubble several times over. It is clear that they have extra ammunition and are happy to part with it in exchange for something, such as food

– suggests Call me Ishmael.

The worst part is that if Trump were to become president again, he would join these two, not Europe, Canada, Australia, etc.

– View from Europe expressed his opinion.

    All these rumors are spread by journalists, political scientists, and Internet channels. Although from the very beginning it was indicated -

    There will be no signed documents

    What can be done without signed documents? Nothing. No one has yet come close to complete trust.

      That’s right, when something appears with us or with them, then it will be possible to make predictions. In the meantime, just idle talk
