    This article explores the new friendship treaty between Russia and the DPRK focusing on Russia's shifting relations with the two Koreas, the process leading to the signing of the new treaty, and the treaty's implications for peace and security in Northeast Asia. Russia seeks a balanced relationship (or even-handed approach) with the two Koreas, while separating politics and economics. By doing so, Moscow will try to enhance its influence and prestige in Korean affairs.
