North Korea's plan to launch the satellite is sometime between Feb.8 and 25
Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday it was deeply concerned about North Korea’s decision to go ahead with a satellite launch.
“We must state that ... the North Korean side demonstrates an outrageous disregard for the universally recognised norms of international law,” the ministry said in a statement.
Pyongyang notified U.N. agencies on Tuesday of its plan to launch what it called an “earth observation satellite” sometime between Feb. 8 and 25.
