Eko Hot Blog reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted an invitation from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to visit Pyongyang, the Kremlin has said. The meeting, which will be the first between the two leaders, is expected to take place in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine continues, with Russian forces launching new attacks on key front-line cities in the east. A six-year-old boy was killed in Russian shelling in the Kherson region, according to Ukrainian officials.
Kyiv claims to have downed 17 out of 22 Russian drones attacking its territory overnight. However, the Russian military has denied these claims.
The war in Ukraine has entered its fifth month, and there is no end in sight. The conflict has caused a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, with millions of people displaced from their homes. It has also had a major impact on the global economy, causing energy prices to soar.
The meeting between Putin and Kim is likely to be closely watched by the international community. North Korea is a close ally of Russia, and the two countries have been working together to develop nuclear weapons.
It is unclear what the two leaders will discuss during their meeting, but it is possible that they will discuss ways to further strengthen their alliance.
