North Korea imports sanctioned items valued at over $300,000 from Russia in July
The shipments included electrical and industrial items covered by designated trade codes
Russian exports of sanctioned materials to North Korea increased sharply in July, Moscow’s trade data shows, with shipments of various types of machinery making their way across the border.
Although small exports of items covered by designated international (HS) trade codes sometimes trickle over to the DPRK, July numbers compiled by the ITC trade map show larger shipments valued at a combined $300,000 dollars.
The items were in numerous designated HS codes, including HS 84 and HS 85, wide-ranging trade classifications that include electrical machinery and industrial equipment which are covered by UN Resolution 2397 passed in December
