Another Russian tour group visits North Korea as it slowly opens to travelers

Tour is second to DPRK since country began to ease COVID controls, with two more scheduled for coming weeks

The second Russian tour to North Korea since the start of the pandemic left for Pyongyang on Friday, as the DPRK pushes forward efforts to normalize tourism and market itself as a destination for Russian travelers.

Natalya Zinina of Vostok Intur, the agency organizing the tour, told NK News that 47 people have joined the trip running from March 8-11, less than half the nearly 100 Russian travelers on the first tour in early February.
