Putin gives North Korea’s Kim Jong Un a Russian Limo as a Gift

The Russian president showed Kim Jong Un the luxurious Aurus limousine last year, and the North Korean leader loved it, so Vladimir Putin gave it to him as a present, the Kremlin announced on Tuesday.

Putin showed Kim one of his black armored cars when Kim paid him a visit in September when Kim was in eastern Russia. Kim seemed to be enjoying the ride in the automobile next to Putin at the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

“When the head of the DPRK (North Korea) was at the Vostochny cosmodrome, he looked at this car, Putin showed it to him personally, and like many people, Kim liked this car,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said when asked about the gift.

“So this decision was made,” Peskov said. “North Korea is our neighbour, our close neighbour, and we intend, and will continue, to develop our relations with all neighbours, including North Korea.”

Russia has stepped up ties with North Korea and other countries hostile to the United States such as Iran since the start of the war with Ukraine – relations that are a source of concern to the West.

The United States has accused North Korea of supplying Russia with artillery shells and missiles used in Ukraine. Moscow and Pyongyang deny the U.S. accusations but vowed last year to deepen military relations.

The Russian-made limousine was delivered to Kim’s top aides by the Russian side on Feb. 18, North Korea’s official KCNA news agency said.
