South Korea unveils sanctions on Russian national over North’s weapons programmes

South Korea’s foreign ministry announced on Wednesday that it has imposed new sanctions on two individuals and two entities for their alleged involvement in North Korea’s weapons programs. The targeted individuals include Choi Chon Gon, a former South Korean national who obtained Russian citizenship, as well as a North Korean who supported Choi. Additionally, the sanctions extend to two companies owned by Choi.

The accusations against Choi revolve around his alleged assistance in North Korea’s illegal financial activities, which is in violation of United Nations Security Council sanctions. The South Korean foreign ministry emphasized that this is the first time the government has imposed unilateral sanctions on an individual of Korean descent.

RushHourDaily attempted to contact Choi for comment but was unable to reach him. Meanwhile, tensions between nuclear-armed North Korea and its neighbors, particularly South Korea and the United States, have been escalating due to North Korea’s continuous testing of various weapons, including its largest intercontinental ballistic missile.

The article concludes with the standard reporting information, stating that the report was filed by Soo-hyang Choi and edited by Ed Davies, while also mentioning that Thomson RushHourDaily adheres to the Trust Principles.
