“You know that a lot of poachers from the DPRK cross the Russian border, carry out illegal fishing in Russian territorial waters. Therefore, of course, vigorous measures are needed in order to restore order in this area, ”said Peskov.

At the same time, he noted that this situation “in no way” will affect the relations between Moscow and Pyongyang.

On September 27, it became known that in the exclusive economic zone of Russia in Primorye, three schooners and several motobots with 262 fishermen-poachers from the DPRK were detained.

In addition, on September 17, as a result of an attack by North Korean poachers on Russian border guards, four servicemen were injured. After that, FSB officers detained more than 160 DPRK citizens.
