North Korea’s Foreign Ministry has expressed support for the results of the annexation “referendums” staged by Russia in multiple occupied Ukrainian territories in late September. In a statement, ministry spokesperson Jo Chol Su said the ministry “respects the will of the residents” of the annexed territories as well as the Russian government’s decision to annex the regions.

So far, North Korea is the only country outside of Russia to support the results of Russia’s “referendums” on annexing Ukraine’s partially-occupied regions. The U.S., the UN, and a number of EU countries have condemned the annexation.
