North Korea, the ally of Maduro and Putin in times of war

North Korea is the most secretive country in the world. Little information goes out and little goes in. Its citizens depend completely on the state and the vast majority consume only the information manipulated by order of Kim Jong-un. But that does not mean that the president, heir to a dynasty of tyrants, is also isolated. On the contrary, he is well connected with the dictators of other nations who abhor the power of the United States.

These alliances present novelties today, when Russia insists on maintaining the war in Ukraine and Venezuela — a country with which some “agreements” and particularities have emerged such as the inauguration of the Venezuelan embassy in North Korea in 2019 — submitted by the Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship seems to take advantage of the need for oil from Western countries, to once again carve out a legitimate space on the world political map.

In this regard, two announcements coincided on the same day about this triangle that probably hides more than trade agreements. The foreign minister of the Venezuelan dictatorship, Carlos Faría, met with the ambassador of the North Korean regime, Ri Sung Gil. As they usually do, they did not detail what they talked about, they only mentioned in a statement that the objective was to “strengthen ties of cooperation and friendship” between both nations. For its part, the country dominated by Kim Jong-un announced that it could send workers to the Donetsk and Lugansk territories, in the Ukrainian Donbas.

The slaves in Russia of Kim Jong-un

The goal with those North Korean workers is to rebuild the Russian-held Ukrainian territories that were recognized by Pyongyang as “republics.” Something illegal for being under the jurisdiction of the presidency of Volodímir Zelenzki.

After announcing that the decision taken by the North Korean dictatorship seeks to “strengthen” the “international status” of both areas, the self-proclaimed governor of Donetsk, Denis Pushilin, asserted that the following will be an “active and fruitful cooperation.” So the complicity between the two countries is even closer.

Now, the sending of “workers to help with reconstruction”, as the Russian ambassador to North Korea mentioned to NK News, hides something else. In 2018 he revealed how some 150,000 North Koreans who worked on average for the dictatorship claimed that they were treated “like dogs.” The reason, the little freedom for their working hours and zero economic gains. The latter were redirected for the benefit of the Kim dynasty from destinations such as China and Russia.

“It is estimated that they generate almost 1.5 billion dollars a year and a former North Korean diplomat assured that much of that money goes to the nuclear and missile program,” quoted the BBC investigation. Specifically for that year, it was estimated that Russia housed some 40,000 workers. They, classified as “contemporary slaves” according to experts, know that without their workforce, the hermetic country would have even less foreign exchange to survive, sinking it into even worse poverty.

The murky deals with Venezuela


Regarding Venezuela, there are more questions than answers. The statement, as ambiguous as the texts issued from the offices of Chavismo tend to be, stated that both countries are “victims of unilateral coercive measures imposed by US imperialism.”

Although they have not offered further details, the friendship between Maduro and Kim Jong-un has a long history since both are united by their enmity with the United States, a reason that led the number two of Chavismo, Diosdado Cabello, to visit the Asian nation in 2019.

The picture is completed by the alliances of these nations with China and Iran, each one with different potentials that, between world events, take advantage of advancing, to get closer and closer to American territory. The icing on the cake will be the next trials of their snipers in Venezuelan territory.
