Russia is reported to have donated 800 tonnes of flour to North Korea

Citing the Facebook page of the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang, the Washington-based Radio Free Asia has said a Russian ship carrying the wheat flour arrived in North Korea’s port city of Chongjin on Monday.

North Korea is heavily sanctioned under UN resolutions for its nuclear and missile tests.

However, it is understood that the wheat flour has been provided through the UN’s World Food Programme.

The secretive state has been hurt financially by international sanctions that prohibit the sale of military equipment and luxury goods.

Despite this, the wheat flour donation is intended to be used to make dietary supplements for North Korea’s most vulnerable people, including children in the country’s Kangwon and Ryanggang provinces.

Earlier this year, a UN report revealed that roughly two in five North Koreans are undernourished.

North Korea visitor captures secretive state with illegal selfies
Fri, July 28, 2017
A visitor to North Korean used the ingenious technique of appearing to take selfies of himself in order to record his trip without attracting the attention of the autocratic regime’s feared security services. Photographer and entrepreneur Ryan Gadzer, 38, visited the infamously secretive state in April this year to take part in a marathon arranged for Western visitors. While there, Ryan wanted to comprehensively document his trip, but was aware of the strict photography rules implemented by the regime for Westerners visiting the country

The report also showed that more than 70% of the country’s population relies on food aid.

It has been estimated that 18 million people across the country continue to suffer from food insecurity and undernutrition as well as a lack of access to basic services.

The isolated nation has a population of approximately 25 million and has faced food shortages for several years.

Hundreds of thousands of North Koreans are believed to have died during a widespread famine in the 1990s.

Two-thirds of North Koreans still depend on food being distributed by the state.

For several months last year rations of items such as cereals and potatoes had been reduced from 380g per person per day to only 300g, according to the UN.
