Russia in Secret Talks with North Korea
Democracy and Class Struggle says that Russian North Korean relations are not at their best and there is no Altruism in Russia's actions - Russia does recognize reality of North Korea as a nuclear power and that is a good starting position.
The assassinated Andrei Karlov Russia's Ambassador to Turkey is sorely missed at this moment - he was trusted by North Korea.
The Karlov’s legacy in the Russian-North Korean relations must not be underestimated. His closest associate and friend in the Russian embassy in North Korea, Alexander Matsegora, is now the Russian ambassador there. Matsegora was quoted by the New York Times as saying "he [Karlov] is no more and half of me, too, is no more." Can there be a more poignant sign of deep respect and close friendship?
