Russia wheatGETTYRussia is reported to have donated 800 tonnes of flour to North Korea

Citing the Facebook page of the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang, the Washington-based Radio Free Asia has said a Russian ship carrying the wheat flour arrived in North Korea’s port city of Chongjin on Monday.

North Korea is heavily sanctioned under UN resolutions for its nuclear and missile tests.
