A warm meeting despite the darkness of the night: Vladimir Putin flew to the DPRK and took Kim Jong-un back in his Aurus

When it was still Monday afternoon in Moscow and it was already night in Pyongyang, Vladimir Putin’s plane landed at the airport in the North Korean capital (around 3 in the morning). But the weather did not prevent us from meeting the Russian leader with all the honors: red carpet (they say it is the longest in Pyongyang), honor guard and delegations.

It must be said that, as a general rule, the arriving group does not immediately get off the plane; This is a purely technical question: while they adjust the staircase, while they unroll the carpet, while they check all the folds and clean one last time, it takes up to half an hour. Therefore, the receiving party does not leave immediately. But not at this moment. Comrade Kim (he was alone, this is the greatest sign of trust) in his traditional jacket stood for at least 10 minutes in front of the staircase by which the Russian president was to descend.

And then the plane door opened and Vladimir Putin appeared. He shook the stewardess’s hand and approached his colleague.

As journalists write in these cases, negotiations began right on the ramp. Not really: Putin and Kim just greeted each other warmly, said a couple of common phrases and joked about something; The translators did their job without emotion, but the leaders themselves smiled heartily.

But a few minutes later – immediately after Vladimir Putin greeted Russian embassy workers – it appears that talks on the matter have already begun. Putin and Kim talked about something face to face.

The leaders left the airport… in a car. Putin invited (apparently he wanted to show a new model of Russian limousine). Kim happily accepted this invitation, although he himself knows first-hand what Aurus is (the Russian president gave a limousine to his North Korean colleague after his visit to Vladivostok). It is true that there was a problem before getting into the car, but only out of courtesy: each of the leaders tried to let the other in first.

As a result, the Russian president sat in the back on the right in his usual place, the leader of the DPRK – on the left, and the motorcade, accompanied by a huge escort of motorcyclists, left the airport.
