North Korea is about to launch 12 million tickets with insulting images in response to balloons sent by South Korea
"The time for reprisals is approaching," North Korea said, threatening to respond to South Korean militants who threw balloons across the border and hung consumer goods, money or messages for North Koreans.
The 12 million tickets have already been printed, and 3,000 balloons are ready to be sent across the border between the two countries, according to the Pyongyang state news agency.
On the propaganda tickets are insulting images of the South Korean president, pictures of rockets being fired and slogans against the enemies of the communist regime in the north. This is an old tactic used by North Korean dissidents in South Korea to spread banned information across the border, such as the human rights situation and the truth about the Kim dynasty.
"The largest launch of leaflets against the enemy is almost complete," the North Korean news agency said, adding that Pyongyang's publishing houses and printing houses have printed 12 million leaflets and those in the provinces are preparing several million more.
Tensions between the North and the South erupted again in early June, after South Korean activists sent balloons of money and consumer goods to the North. This practice has angered Kim Yo-jong, the influential sister of leader Kim Jong-un, who holds an important place in the Pyongyang authoritarian regime.
Kim Yo-jong has threatened to drop the non-aggression pact between the two Koreas and close the North-South liaison office. Subsequently, on June 16, Pyongyang allegedly blew up the liaison office between the two countries, according to South Korean media.
Load of nonsense 🤣
Meet Kim Yo Jong, the possible succesor of the North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un (20 pictures)
Against the backdrop of rumors in Western media about the deteriorating health of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, there was talk that his sister Kim Yo Jong, who is called the "right hand" of the North Korean leader, could become "if something happens" and his possible successor.
Apparently, Kim Jong Un has always viewed his sister as his main deputy and a person who will temporarily act if he is unable to lead the country for some reason. Since the death of her father, Kim Yo Jong has played an important role in the life of the new leader, helping her brother to establish himself as a national leader. Gradually, she occupied a variety of government positions, getting closer and closer to the top.
Since 2014, Kim Yo Jong has been responsible for the propaganda and cult formation of her brother Kim Jong Un, according to Western media. She is also the official representative of the North Korean leader on those trips where for some reason he does not want (or cannot) go.
For example, it was Kim Yo Jong who led the DPRK delegation that went to the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang in 2018. Then she met with South Korean President Moon Jae In and conveyed a message from her brother. Since then, Kim Yo Jong has repeatedly participated in international events and accompanied her brother on trips.
The Kim Dynasty is much more than just the three rulers of North Korea. This dynasty includes brothers and sisters of the leaders, their wives and husbands, and even nephews. Almost all key positions in the state are occupied by people who are related to the country's leader by family ties. At the same time, each leader tries to surround himself with people loyal to him personally, which sometimes results in a purge of the previous elites.
Kim Jong Un needed a reliable ally. And such a person was found - this is his sister Kim Yo Jong, with whom the North Korean leader is united not only by family ties, but also by very close personal relations.
Kim Yo Jong studied in Switzerland with the future leader of the DPRK, and spent most of her time with him. In fact, as teenagers, the Kims were, on the one hand, very free, and on the other, they were under constant control and supervision. That is why neither the North Korean leader nor his sister developed a truly close relationship with anyone in Switzerland, but it was during this period that a base arose that allowed Kim Yo Jong to further advance almost to the very top of the North Korean hierarchy.
Kim Yo Jong reached the peak of her power at the end of 2019, when Kim Jong Un directly appointed her as "the second person in the state" in case of his illness or temporary incapacity.
However, this does not mean that Kim Yeo-jung will gain power even in the case of the worst-case scenario for Kim Jong-un. She has not been officially appointed the successor of the DPRK leader, in addition, Kim Yeo Jong has an older brother, Kim Jong Chol. He seems to have retired from politics, and does not want to return to it, studying music, but this situation may change if a real power struggle begins in North Korea.
