Good news for citizens of those countries. I can see lots of North Koreans lining up for their visas already. Hope they extend it to other countries later.

Looking at the regions involved and also the countries on the list, this seems useful only/mainly for Chinese and Japanese citizens - I don't see much traffic from e.g the Gulf or the Maghreb to the Russian Far-East. North Koreans could also benefit, if they could get out of the country first.

I find very strange Malaysia and Indonesia are not on the list

1. They are close
2. They do not require visas for Russian citizens
