According to Reuters, unpublished reports by Moscow to the United Nations Security Council said that Russia sent home nearly two-thirds of some 30,000 North Koreans working there during 2018. The report was submitted to the council’s North Korea sanctions committee in compliance with a 2017 resolution that demanded the repatriation of all North Korean workers by the end of this year. The United States has said it believed Pyongyang was earning more than $500 million a year from nearly 100,000 workers abroad.
