Kremlin wants to open "representative offices" of the DPRK in Donetsk

Sep 17, 2023

Russian President Vladimir Putin persuaded Kim Jong Un to open "diplomatic missions" of North Korea in temporarily occupied Donetsk and Luhansk.


This was reported by the Center of National Resistance, Ukrinform reports.

Thus, according to the information of the Central Committee of Ukraine, following the results of the meeting of the dictators on September 13, a number of agreements were signed concerning the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The creation of pseudo-diplomatic institutions is one of them.

It has been established that the main task of these "representative offices" will be to facilitate the importation of workers to the occupied territories and the involvement of North Korean citizens in carrying out construction work there.

As noted in the Center of National Resistance, such actions of the Kremlin testify to the lack of a sufficient number of workers from Russia itself or labor migrants from Central Asia, who could be involved both for the construction of engineering and fortification infrastructure for the Russian troops in the temporarily captured territories of Ukraine, and for construction in interests of invading pseudo-administrations.

Attempts to recruit labor migrants to the ranks of the Russian army were already recorded in the spring and summer. of the current year. The National Resistance Center does not rule out the possibility that North Korean workers will be used to support the Russian invaders.

According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, at the end of July, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia already established its regional "representative offices" in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, among the tasks of which is to attract foreigners to labor migration and to help them create enterprises in these regions.

Also, these pseudo-institutions are engaged in the opening of new pseudo-diplomatic representations and similar "organizations", which will give grounds to speak in the future about the "international recognition" of the ownership of these territories by Russia. Until 2022, a similar role was played by the "representative offices" of the so-called Commonwealth of Unrecognized States: Abkhazia, the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Gagauzia, the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic, and South Ossetia.
