Putin-Kim summit expected on Wednesday, Kremlin says

A high-ranking Kremlin official says a summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is expected to take place on Wednesday.

Putin will likely arrive in Pyongyang late on Tuesday night, according to the official.

It will be Putin's first visit to North Korea in 24 years. Russia is apparently seeking to strengthen military ties with North Korea, as its invasion of Ukraine drags on.
