Details: The first group of Russian children is expected to be sent to the North Korean summer camp in late July.


Gurov said that authorities are expecting great demand for the spots in the camp, because the conditions there are "excellent".

In April, Primorsky Krai officials said that Russian tourists will be able to spend their vacations on North Korean beaches, claiming that summer tour packages have already been finalised.


  • On 19 June, Russian leader Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a comprehensive strategic partnership agreement, which includes a provision about mutual assistance in case of aggression against either of these states.
  • NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the agreement demonstrates increasing coherence between authoritarian states and underlines the importance of democracies speaking with a united voice.
  • Kurt Campbell, US Deputy Secretary of State, believes that North Korea may request from Russia the technologies for improvement of long-range missiles and nuclear weapons in exchange for the military aid it provides Russia with.
  • South Korean TV network TV Chosun reported that North Korea will send military construction and engineering forces to participate in "reconstruction works" in occupied Donetsk Oblast as early as July 2024.
