President Trump openly criticized Russia while speaking to a gathering of U.S. governors on Monday, slamming their assistance to North Korea.

“Russia is behaving badly because Russia is sending in [to North Korea] what China is taking out,” Trump said.

The president has been pressuring Beijing to end its support of the Kim regime amid North Korea’s rapidly developing nuclear missile program. But recent reports revealed that Russia was filling in the gap, helping the rogue nation avoid strict UN sanctions:

“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said during an Oval Office interview with Reuters. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”

China and Russia both signed onto the latest rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions against North Korea imposed last year. There was no immediate comment from the Russian embassy in Washington on Trump’s remarks.

However, the president added that he believes Moscow would like to see a solution to the North Korean problem.
