Pyongyang FM Pangsong & Voice of Korea Livestream from North Korea

Hello! There is a new livestream available for Pyongyang FM Pangsong (?? FM ??) in Korean and Voice of Korea (VoK) in Russian:
The broadcasts in Russian are not according to VoK's shortwave schedule as they are aired at the following hours Moscow Time:
00.30, 03.30, 06.30, 09.30, 12.30, 15.30, 18.30, 21.30; at all other times Pyongyang FM Pangsong is heard

There is another independent livestream available on YouTube:

The latter is powered by the DPRK Solidarity Group in Russia:

All these new activities are no doubt the fruition of the new landline
internet link between North Korea and Russia (both countries share a
common border in the far Northeast of Korea):

In North Korea itself there is a state-of-the-art optical fibre cable
intranet available which is rapidly expanding. During my last stay in
North Korea (May/June 2016) I pointed out that it would be favourable
for the North Koreans to have another link to the WorldWideWeb through
Russia in order to gain more reliable access to the WWW (hitherto the
one and only connection has been the Sinuiju/Dandong link, PR of China).

So now it bears fruit! :-) Vy 73s + best wishes, (Arnulf Piontek, Berlin, Germany, Oct 22, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
