North Korean Diplomat 'Missing' in Russia Found in Seoul

A North Korean official who went missing from his country’s embassy in St. Petersburg has been found with his family in the South Korean capital of Seoul, the South Korean radio station KBS reported Friday.

Kim Cheol Sung was reported missing on July 6 when embassy officials told police that he had not been seen since leaving the embassy in an official car on July 1.

Russian media reports claim that Kim had traveled to Seoul via Minsk airport in Belarus.  

He is now under the custody of the South Korean government, KBS reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
