Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu flies to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
– From July 25 to 27, at the invitation of the DPRK Ministry of Defense, a Russian delegation headed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will visit the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to take part in celebrations dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people in the 1950-1953 Patriotic Liberation War, the Russian Defense Ministry reports.
The military department noted that “this visit will help strengthen military ties between Russia and North Korea and will become an important stage in the development of cooperation between the two countries.”
It should be noted that this spring the Victory Museum hosted an international conference dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the end of the war in Korea.
The assembled military and historians discussed the reasons for the start of the war in Korea in 1950-1953, the diplomatic activities of the USSR and European states in the pre-war, war and post-war periods.
The meeting participants stated that such events make it possible to draw relevant lessons from the events of this historical period, to develop scientifically-based recommendations for use in organizing military-patriotic education and work to counter attempts to falsify military history.
Let’s remember that the last Korean War was provoked by South Korean troops under the auspices of the United States. The Americans dreamed of transferring the armed forces liberated after the Great Patriotic War to South Korea under the pretext of “disarming the Japanese army.”
As history has shown, in fact, the Pentagon planned to make South Korea its military base and with its help to capture North Korea, in order to later establish dominance not only over all of Northeast Asia, but also over the entire world.
