On the 17th in Russia's exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan, the Russian border guard seized two North Korean fishing boats on suspicion of poaching.

According to the Russian Federal Security Service, on the 17th, in the exclusive economic zone of Russia in the Sea of Japan, a border guard ship discovered two North Korean fishing boats and 11 motorboats suspected of poaching.
When a member of the Border Protection Bureau boarded and examined a fishing boat on which 45 people were on board, they were resisted by the crew of the fishing boat and three members were injured.
The border security agency seized two fishing boats and took them to the port of the Russian Far East, and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the minister of the North Korean embassy in Moscow to protest.
In the Sea of Japan, there have been a series of cases in which North Korean fishing boats with illegal food conditions operate illegally in Japan and Russia's exclusive economic zones. We are strengthening the crackdown by seizing 16 fishing boats and restraining more than 250 people.
However, there are not many cases of injuries like this time, and Russia and North Korea are expected to proceed with measures so as not to affect the relationship between the two countries.
