    In normal times, most diplomats can expect to end a foreign posting with an official – if not always fond – farewell from their hosts and a comfortable journey back to their native country.

    But for one group of Russian envoys and their families, the coronavirus pandemic meant there was only one way home: under their own steam on a hand-pushed rail trolley.

    A more conventional exit from North Korea has not been possible since the country closed its land borders and banned international air travel early on in the pandemic
