The situation with the DPRK bothers Russia more than many, because our country is close to North Korea. This was stated press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, his words RIA Novosti reported.

“Many countries, including the United States carry this discussion remotely — the US is many thousands of kilometers from the Korean Peninsula. However, everything that happens on the Korean Peninsula occurs in the vicinity of Russia’s borders. Therefore, we are not less but maybe more than others are concerned about how the events will develop”, — said Peskov.

“And we are not less and may be more interested in the fact that the situation got permission and solely by politico-diplomatic means, as was said by the President of Russia”, — said the representative of the Kremlin.

North Korea announced the successful test of a hydrogen bomb on the morning of 3 September. The DPRK stated that we are talking about the payload that can be used to equip Intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The Chairman of the defense Committee of the Parliament of South Korea Kim Yeon Woo appreciated the power of the bomb of 100 kilotons. It is four to five times stronger than the charge used in Nagasaki in 1945, and ten times more powerful than the previous North Korean bomb.
