In a significant development that underscores the evolving geopolitical dynamics in the region, a delegation of North Korean military trainers, led by the esteemed President of the Kim Il Sung Military University, Kim Geum Chol, has embarked on a journey to Russia.

This move marks the first military exchange between the two nations since the signing of a comprehensive military treaty last month.

As reported by Newsweek, the military treaty was signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Pyongyang in June, where he held bilateral talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The agreement stipulates that each party will "provide military and other assistance without delay by all means at its disposal" to the other. This pledge of mutual military aid comes into effect if either nation is attacked, thereby strengthening military ties between North Korea and Russia amidst growing global instability.

This development comes on the heels of a new partnership agreement between the two nations, signed just weeks ago. It is worth noting that Pyongyang has been a long-standing supplier of weapons to Moscow for use against Ukraine. This cooperation between Russia and North Korea has been described by South Korea's President Yoon Suk Yeol as a "distinct threat and a grave challenge to the peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in Europe."

In response to the escalating situation, French President Emmanuel Macron has proposed sending military instructors to Ukraine from a coalition of Western allies. However, this proposal has reportedly met with opposition from President Joe Biden. Despite this, Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi has confirmed that he has signed documents "that will allow the first French instructors to visit training centers soon."

During a state visit to Russia, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his anguish over the loss of innocent lives, particularly children, in these attacks. He stated, "Whether it is war, conflict or a terrorist attack, any person who believes in humanity, is pained when there is loss of lives. But even in that, when innocent children are killed, the heart bleeds, and that pain is very terrifying."

Peter Stano, EU Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, echoed these sentiments, stating, "Russia is becoming increasingly cruel in its attacks against civilians across Ukraine. Only yesterday, Russia conducted several waves of large-scale attacks on several Ukrainian cities, which caused a large number of civilian casualties, with dozens killed and many more injured. Okhmatdyt, the largest children's hospital in Ukraine, was directly hit by a missile. A maternity hospital was later damaged too."
