dec 29, 2017 - Russia 'has repeatedly supplied fuel to North Korea in violation of sanctions'
Russian tankers have reportedly repeatedly supplied fuel to North Korea in a violation of sanctions on the isolated state.
Reuters said two Western European security officials had said Russian ships were transferring their cargo at sea to Korean vessels.
A source told the news agency there was no evidence that the transfers were state-sponsored but noted the transfers were nevertheless “giving a lifeline” to North Korea, which has faced global condemnation for its increasing belligerent behaviour.
