Интернациональная помощь СССР Северной Корее в области образования (1946-1948)

The author addresses the subject of cooperation between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and North Korea in the field of education in 1946-1950, which is a subject that has been poorly studied in the Russian and foreign historiography. Close cooperation between these countries began in 1946, prior to the establishment of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in 1948. After the liberation of the Korean Peninsula, Soviet specialists of the Korean nationality were sent from the Soviet Union to North Korea to help recover its economy, and the Korean youth arrived from North Korea to the USSR for education. The article attempts to trace the stages of cooperation in the field of education and training of specialists in various fields of industry, culture, and science based on the archival materials from the State Archive of the Russian Federation (GARF), the Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History (RGASPI), and the published papers. The study of the above aspects is important for obtaining a clear understanding of policies of the two states that currently define main directions in the relations between the two countries, which are organically connected by the past.
