North Korea leader Kim to meet with Putin in Russia

This will also mark the first time for Kim to travel overseas after his February summit in Hanoi with US President Donald Trump ended without a deal as they failed to find common ground over the scope of Pyongyang's denuclearization and Washington's sanctions relief.
