On 23 April two aircraft from North Korea landed in Vladivostok airport. South Korean media reported that Kim's security service was allegedly on board the planes and it arrived in Russia to prepare for a meeting between Kim and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Monday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the two leaders would meet at the end of April.
The meeting is expected to take place at Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok, according to media reports. The location has reportedly been chosen by North Korea due to security concerns.
