Images of a group of Russian diplomats who wanted to leave North Korea but suffered greatly due to strict travel restrictions became the media coverage. In North Korea, where no cases were claimed, strict measures were taken regarding public transportation within the scope of coronavirus measures.
International travel from North Korea is also almost completely banned.
A group of Russian diplomats also made preparations to leave North Korea, but there was a lack of means of transport.
The diplomats found the solution with drezin, which was used to transport the crew and supplies needed for the maintenance of the railway infrastructure.
They pushed drezin up to the Russian border
Diplomats and their families traveled by train for 32 hours and by bus for 2 hours in order to get to the river from the capital city of Pyongyang.
Then the group of eight people pushed the drezin about a kilometer to the Russian border and returned to their country.
