Why Putin and Kim's forthcoming meeting was kept in secret?


The Assistant to the President on the international affairs Yury Ushakov reported date and the place of negotiations of the Russian and North Korean leaders in two days prior to the event. Earlier details of the preparing Kim Jong-un's visit to Russia were known only from sources of media Kim Jong-un.

After several days of speculation the assistant to the Russian president Yury Ushakov designated date and the place of negotiations of two leaders. The Kremlin added what neither signings of documents, nor a joint statement of two leaders is not planned yet. At the official level only the fact that Kim Jong-un will arrive to Russia until the end of April was known before. All the rest — speculation and the words of sources of media. Some spoke about arrival in the morning on Wednesday, others — about evening of Thursday. Journalists tried to grasp each grain of sand of information. For example, here is how at one of briefings with Dmitry Peskov the journalist of the Air Force tried to find out whether it is time to send film crew to Primorye: — Meaning that the distance will be rather big, to go far, it would be desirable simply that it was in due time announced, for several days, but not in several hours. — Everything will be in the territory of the Russian Federation. — It is big. — We guarantee it to you. It is possible to call information maintenance of the first meeting of Kim and Putin unusual. Traditionally the leader of the DPRK or without any prevention, almost secretly, goes to China or plans a meeting with Trump — once successfully, the second it is unsuccessful, and it begins to be discussed for several months. What can the decision to arrive to Russia almost without information artillery preparation be connected with? Alexey Maslov the head of school of oriental studies of Higher School of Economics "Even such "psevdotaynost" in many respects forces to strain our American partners therefore I think that it is made specially. Russia and North Korea many times postponed this meeting. Lavrov met Kim Jong-un, and all asked: and why the major negotiator, Russia, does not participate at the top level? But because we correctly held a pause in time to play. I think that now all wait that Putin will offer Kim Jong-un, considering that Putin always tells very concrete things. He meets when is really what to offer". As other reason to hold a meeting special attention to safety peculiar to any isolated leader which someone will call paranoia unexpectedly can serve. It is known that Kim plans to arrive to Russia on own armored train which on border should change wheel couples. As Interfax reported, in Vladivostok already there arrived one of its limousines, also armored. Moreover, that the car could take out Kim from the city station, workers had to smooth the abrupt section of the road.Exciting of photo of preps for Kim Jong-un visit to #Vladivostok in advance.
