U.S. Claims Russia Seeks Food-For-Arms Deal With North Korea

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

The Biden Administration claims that it has evidence that Russia is seeking a trade agreement with North Korea in which Russia would supply food while North Korea would supply munitions to Russia to help in its war with Ukraine.  While experts believe that North Korea’s food situation is the worst it has been since Kim Jong Un became the country’s Supreme Leader, there is no evidence suggesting famine or widespread starvation.  North Korean state media reported earlier this month that the government was taking steps to have more control over agriculture.
