It has been reported that the North Korean military authorities have not properly supplied winter clothing, and are forcing residents to offer clothing.
On the 13th, a source from North Hamgyeong said in a call with Daily NK, “A project to support the people’s armed forces began for residents in Musan County on the 8th. I said.
The source also specifically ordered the best quality clothes to be worn.” He added, “In winter, we carry out various support projects for the People’s Army such as food and socks, and it is rare to force them to provide substitute clothing like this year.”
North Korea has supplied winter clothing to soldiers every November. However, due to chronic economic difficulties, there were many cases where adequate supply was not possible, and it was easy to see the original military uniforms covered with cloth.
In addition, there was a situation where it was impossible to laugh when the scraps from the cloth or shoe factory were artificially swollen like cotton by turning them into a grinder. The cotton coat with this type of cotton is called’poop cotton’ because once it is washed, it is immediately assembled into one place.
But this year the situation got worse. As the border was blocked due to the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), the import of cloth cloth itself was not easy, and it is said that he fell into the worst situation in not being able to properly manufacture the winter coat.
Regarding this, the source pointed out, “It is no different from the fact that the military who could not supply copper clothing to the army left the shortage to the residents.”
He continued, “In the 1990s, during the difficult march, a number of young soldiers died due to malnutrition due to poor supply of daily necessities. “You will be in trouble.”
Residents are embarrassed to the sudden order of’paying the best winter clothes’.
A source said, “There are many people who couldn’t wear new clothes and spent the holidays even in the New Year because they are suffering from food shortages due to the coronavirus. “Would you like to get it?” he said.
In addition, the source introduced the local atmosphere, saying, “Young soldiers in their teens and twenties want to support them, but when they see the executives who live brightly, they don’t want to add the cheapest clothes.”
