Russia Denies Port Entry to N. Korean Cargo Ship

Russia has denied port entry to a North Korean ship carrying cargo from China after port officials suspected the vessel was violating UN sanctions on the North. 

The Mangyongbong, which usually transports cargo between the North’s Rajin port and Vladivostok, reportedly applied to enter a port in the Far Eastern Russian city last Wednesday. 

However, Russian customs authorities are known to have denied the vessel entry, judging the ship was carrying the cargo deemed to be in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. 

According to the Russian operator of the Mangyongbong, the ship was carrying six containers of Chinese feed for livestock loaded from Rajin, adding a Chinese exporter of the animal feed asked the ship to move it for eventual sale in South Korea.
