Sources familiar with the meeting between Putin and Jong-un revealed that the two world leaders exchanged rifles on Wednesday.

“Putin gave [Jong-un] a rifle from our production of the highest quality,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov shared, according to the Guardian. “In return, he also received a North Korean-made rifle.”

Peskov also said that Putin gifted Jong-un a “glove from a space suit that has been to space several times.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jong-un’s visit to Russia this week marked the North Korean dictator's first international trip in more than four years.

The North Korean dictator reportedly arrived in Vladivostok, Russia on Tuesday, and he met with Putin for a tour of a Russian space station on Wednesday.

Jong-un’s visit to Russia this week marked the North Korean dictator's first international trip in more than four years.

A video of the pair’s meeting on Wednesday caught the Russian leader as he struggled to control his own foot and leg while Jong-un sat just inches away at the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Oblast.

Putin and Jong-un then reportedly met for a one-on-one meeting shortly after the tour of the Russian space station, and the North Korean leader remarked that Russia is fighting a “sacred war” against Ukraine and the West.

Jong-un’s visit to Russia is reportedly scheduled to last “a few more days."

“Our fathers and grandfathers fought together against Japanese militarism, our country supported North Korea in its fight against the United States’ imperialist ambitions in the 1950s, and today we jointly stand up to the pressure of the collective West,” Degtyarev wrote in a Telegram post during Jong-un’s visit.

Jong-un’s visit to Russia is reportedly scheduled to last “a few more days,” and the United States warned North Korea that the nation would “pay a price” if Jong-un arms Putin with weapons to aid Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine.
