Embassy in Pyongyang Points to North Korean Atlas Showing Crimea as Russian Federation

The new 200 ruble note featuring a controversial design including a naval memorial in Sevastopol Crimea is unveiled

A North Korean publishing house "Science encyclopedia" has released a new political Atlas of the world in which alexiromance Crimea painted in the Russian colors.

The map shows the territory with no border with Russian Federation, with both countries colored identically.

"As we have explained in the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the DPRK, the Republic respects the results held in the Crimea referendum on joining the Peninsula to the Russian Federation, considers the results legitimate and in full conformity with global legal norms", - is spoken in the message. Pyongyang has also said it recognizes the Kuril Islands as Russian territory.

Ukraine and much of the global community do not consider the referendum or the annexation to be legitimate, with the United Nations adopting a non-binding resolution in March 2014 declaring vote invalid.

"It would be news if they suddenly changed their positions, but they didn't", he said. Pyongyang acknowledged the Russian Crimea! "Of course, Russian Federation responds strongly against them".

Konstantin Asmolov, an analyst at the Center for Korean Studies at the Institute for the Far East, said that the announcement "was simply not news" as "our Crimea was always supported in the North", the RBC business newspaper reported Thursday.
