Kim Jong-un’s train continues north… Meeting at Vostochny Cosmodrome?
It was discovered that the private train on which North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un was traveling in the north direction was not going to Vladivostok in the Far East, which was initially considered a likely destination.
There is speculation in Russia that the North Korea-Russia summit may be held at the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
Let’s connect with the newsroom to find out the current situation.

The private train carrying Chairman Kim Jong-un arrived at Khasan Station on the North Korea-Russia border this morning and then moved toward Ussuriysk.
Initially, the local prediction was that this train would change tracks before arriving at Ussuriysk Station and head to Vladivostok, located further south.
However, at around 1:10 PM local time, it was reported that the train maintained its direction and continued moving toward Khabarovsk Oblast, which is located much further north.
Russia’s local RIA Novosti news agency also reported that Chairman Kim’s train was moving north across the railway bridge across the Razdolnaya River below near Ussuriysk Station.
There are also predictions that if this train continues to move northwest안전놀이터the venue for the North Korea-Russia summit, which is still shrouded in mystery, could be the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur region.
Vostochny Cosmodrome is a state-of-the-art spaceport newly built in 2012 to reduce dependence on Kazakhstan’s ‘Baikonur’ cosmodrome, which is being leased by Russia. The first satellite was launched in April 2016.
It is also considered a place that can symbolically demonstrate the expansion of military cooperation between North Korea and Russia.
Local media reported that reporters and other reporters are currently flocking to the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
However, since the straight line distance from Hasan Station to Vostochny Cosmodrome is almost 1,000 kilometers, some are predicting that if the summit is actually held here, the summit may be held later than expected.
North Korea and Russia officially announced yesterday that Chairman Kim and President Putin will hold a summit, but they are still keeping quiet about the meeting location and date.
The news office has reported this so far.
