Russian President Vladimir Putin has awarded North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un a commemorative war medal marking the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany.
The World War II medal was awarded to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for his role in preserving the memory of Soviet soldiers who died on North Korean territory. In 2019, Russia invited Kim to visit Moscow on May 9, 2020, to attend the military parade marking the 75th anniversary of the victory. Alexander Matsegora, Russia’s ambassador in North Korea, presented the award to the North Korea Foreign Minister Ri Son-gwon.
