Russia allows entry of thousands of North Korean workers

“Russia is allowing thousands of fresh North Korean laborers into the country and granting new work permits in potential violation of U.N. sanctions, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.” So far, over 10,000 North Koreans have registered in Russia in the past year. These actions may violate U.N. sanctions over North Korea, and the U.N. is currently investing the matter.
