Russian Official: North Korea Outraged by Depiction of Kim Jong Uns Wife

A Russian envoy to North Korea said Kim Jong Un was outraged by allegedly insulting depictions of his wife in leaflets that were launched into the communist country by defectors in recent days.

The impoverished, communist country has become increasingly belligerent earlier this month, blowing up a liaison office shared between the North and the South. Kims sister, Kim Yo Jong, also sent out a series of threats to Seoul after the leaflets were dropped in Noth Korea.

Russian ambassador to North Korea Alexander Matsegora told AFP that the leaflets allegedly contained insulting imagery of Ri Sol Ju, the wife of Kim Jong Un, saying they were “insulting propaganda.”

He added that the images of Ri were photoshopped in “such a low-grade way,” adding that it was the “last straw” for North Korea.
