Putin gifts Kim another limo at Pyongyang summit in open violation of sanctions

Russian leader brings Aurus vehicle after pledging to work with North Korea to evade West’s economic controls

Russian leader Vladimir Putin brought a limousine to Pyongyang this week as a gift for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to Russian state media, in an open violation of U.N. sanctions prohibiting such a transfer.

It is the second time Putin has given Kim a Russian-made Aurus limousine this year, after he sent an armored version to Pyongyang in February.
