Russian tourists are expected to visit North Korea for a ski trip, marking the first visit by international travelers since the country closed its borders in 2020 due to the pandemic. The tourists will come from Russia’s Primorye region and will visit Pyongyang and the Masik Pass ski resort. This visit follows a meeting between Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin, indicating closer cooperation between Russia and North Korea. The trip was arranged under an agreement between Oleg Kozhemyako, governor of the Primorye region, and North Korean authorities, with discussions about boosting economic ties and tourism. This visit is seen as a way for North Korea to earn foreign currency and rebuild its economy, but some experts believe that the return of Chinese tourists will be more financially lucrative. The visit also has geopolitical significance, as it symbolizes revitalized relations with Moscow. Additionally, outside observers believe that the visit may be a sign of North Korea’s attempts to open up to the world and revive its economy after being impacted by the pandemic and sanctions.
