The expanding Russian Empire reached Korea’s border in 1860 and “Korea’s ice-free ports fronting the Sea of Japan were especially coveted by the Russians“. From its creation, after World War II, North Korea was a client state of Russia-USSR. After a lull, this was renewed when Putin became President.

Lavrov told Russian news agencies on February 25 that Russia believed the United States should issue “security commitments” to Pyongyang to negotiate a successful nuclear demotion of the Korean peninsula.
The Russian Foreign Minister also said the United States is asking Russia’s opinions and views on possible cases at the second North-American Summit in Hanoi.
In addition to the issue of non-nuclearization, which was not yet solved in the first summit in Singapore last year, other comments suggest that the Korean War may officially be ended at this Summit.
