MOSCOW, October 31 – RIA Novosti. The situation around the Korean Peninsula is degrading, the launches of the DPRK were provoked by the actions of South Korea and the United States, said Georgy Zinoviev, director of the First Asia Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“Unfortunately, the situation continues to degrade. We see the main reason is that the window of opportunity and goodwill that followed from the DPRK was not used,” the diplomat told reporters, noting that Pyongyang refrained from actions for a long time. According to him, now there is a transition from “a policy of kindness in response to kindness to a policy of spearhead against spearhead.”

“To a large extent, these launches were provoked by military-political activity, which we have not observed for many years either from the Republic of Korea or from its allies, but which, unfortunately, we have seen in recent months – this is the connection of American military capacities, and large-scale maneuvers between the Republic of Korea and the United States,” Zinoviev added. He recalled that Russia, together with China, put forward a number of initiatives to resolve the situation on the Korean Peninsula, expressing the hope that the logic of peaceful coexistence and problem solving will prevail. The diplomat stressed that no humanitarian concessions had been made regarding Pyongyang.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea reported on October 28 that the South Korean military detected DPRK missile launches from the Tongcheon area in Gangwon province between 11:59 and 12:18 (05:59 and 06:18 GMT).
