The authorities of some Russian regions began the process of expulsion in the DPRK, working in accordance with the resolution of the UN security Council. This was announced by Russian Ambassador to Pyongyang Alexander Matsegora, reports RIA Novosti.

According to him, the ban on workers from the DPRK will “be a blow to the Russian economy, but we are UN security Council resolutions executed rigorously.” He explained that every year in Russia legally drive 12 to 15 thousand citizens of the DPRK, 90 percent of whom receive short-term working visas.

Matsegora said that in Russia there are about 35 thousand North Korean citizens. They are employed in construction, agriculture, in the fishing industry. Migrant workers approximately half of the income transferred to the budget of the DPRK, however, and the remaining amount is enough to feed “the 13 members of the family work”.

February 6, Matsegora said that sanctions against the DPRK worsen the humanitarian situation in the country. After a meeting of the UN Committee on sanctions against Pyongyang, he told reporters that because of the restrictive measures to the suffering North Korean population is almost impossible to deliver medical and food supplies.

In the summer of 2017, after another missile test by Pyongyang, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that extends restrictive measures against North Korea. In December the UN security Council imposed against Pyongyang with new sanctions, including the expulsion of North Korean migrants from all countries.
