Russian president Vladimir Putin is planning to travel to meet North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to discuss the possibility of acquiring weapons for his war effort in Ukraine, according to US intelligence.
Putin would travel to Vladivostok on the Pacific coast of Russia, and Kim from Pyongyang by armoured train, to discuss the arms sale, it was reported.
It comes as the Kremlin claimed Russia shot down Ukrainian drones in Moscow’s Istra district in the early hours of this morning.
Today, a Russian general was pictured for the first time after he disappeared following the Wagner Group’s aborted mutiny in June.
A new photo was posted to Russian social media claiming to show a photo of Sergei Surovikin, who dissapeared following the aborted coup.
Mr Surovikin was reportedly close to Wagner leader Yevgeny Prighozin, who was killed in a plane crash near Moscow last month.
The image, posted to Telegram, shows a man in sunglasses and a cap walking alongside a woman resembling Surovikin’s wife, Anna.
