Russia’s bargaining position improves

Now that supporting North Korea has gotten too expensive for the Chinese (as judging by Russia taking over their internet connections), North Korea moves into the Russian orbit, and Putin now has several more bargaining chips he can use in his campaign to restore Eastern Europe to safe vassal states.  It’s a bad time to be Ukranian (yet again).
