Russia steps up North Korea support to contain U.S.

北朝鮮の貨客船、万景峰(マンギョンボン)号が18日、ロシアへの新たな定期便を開始することを目的とした試験運航をするために、ウラジオストクに入港することになっています。ロシアは北朝鮮に対して独自の制裁を科していないのです。

"Putin seems to have adopted a slash-and-burn approach to the liberal international order, so anything that serves to undermine institutions such as NATO, the European Union or democracy in general is fair game," Pinkston said. "He is intent on creating instability in a way that serves Russian interests and this sort of multi-front, hybrid war serves to undermine the US and its allies."
"North Korea fits neatly into that agenda because it causes problems for Washington, keeps the US tied down, drains its resources and causes friction with allies in the region."
Pinkston points out that playing neighboring nations off against each other for its favors is not a new North Korean tactic and it has manipulated China and Russia for its own ends in the past.

In spite of international sanctions on the communist regime in North Korea, Russia is increasing exports of fuel to Pyongyang and filling the gap in supply created by China halting trade. Julian Ryall reports.

Despite efforts by the United Nations to impose sanctions on North Korea that essentially isolate the regime in response to its continued development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, trade between Russia and North Korea soared more than 85 percent in the first four months of the year.
Citing Russian customs data, the Voice of America broadcaster has reported that bilateral trade climbed to $31.83 million (29 million euros) in the January-March quarter, with the vast majority being energy products going over the border into the North.

This included $22 million worth of coal, lignite with a value of around $4.7 million, and oil estimated at $1.2 million. In return, North Korean exports to Russia were estimated to be worth $420,000. The most significant exports were chemicals and - curiously - wind instruments.


New ferry route
The most recent example of this support for Pyongyang is the plan to open a ferry route between North Korea and the Russian Far East port of Vladivostok, although the proposal has been delayed by strong protests from Japan.






ロシアは、アメリカ、NATO、EUを動揺させるものなら地域紛争でもなんでも利用して、欧米を不安定にしてロシアに有利にしようという戦法をとっている、と。北朝鮮はアメリカにとって頭痛の種になるから、ロシアにとって活かして起きたい国なわけで、その証拠に、ロシアは北朝鮮に燃料を提供し、今年だけでも、貿易額が85%はねあがっており、さらに万景峰号で、北朝鮮の資金援助もしてあげている、と独メディア。
