Russian company makes North Korean workers its selling point
Vladivostok company leverages local reputation with a slick website and social media accounts

A company in Russia’s Far East employing North Koreans has gone against the flow with its marketing strategy, by making its workers’ nationality a primary selling point, NK News has learned.

Remont Korea specializes in what appear to be high quality renovations, and flouts the regular secrecy normally surrounding DPRK laborers abroad, instead advertising their skills on a slick (Russian only) website complete with a “chat with us” application.
