Hwasong-13 appears to be a three-stage ICBM (Inter Continental Ballistic Missile), while the chart showing Pukguksong-3, although largely obscured by officials, is an Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM). It's not the first time that North Korea has "accidentally" left details of important developments in the background of photo-shoots, and this is seen by analysts as a means of showing off its military power or sending messages to its foes.
"The US and South Korea holding yet more large-scale military and naval exercises does not help reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula,"
"We urge all sides to exercise maximum caution. Given the arms build-up in the region, any rash move or even an unintended incident could spark a military conflict."
"Our long-range aviation pilots, according to an established plan, regularly carry out flights over neutral waters over the Atlantic, the Arctic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean from their bases and from tactical airfields," the defense ministry said in the same statement.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent sanctions?

Not sure about that , I think Trump is playing right into Mr Kim's hands by reacting with aggression , Kim needs the threat from America to make himself look strong and rally support at home.
Trump's sanctions against Chinese and Russian business and citizens is also good news for Kim as it leaves America isolated after they had gained the limited support of China.

Obviously, although the Bear is a lot faster than people think. But they're still there to catch radar and radio signals, just like the -95 does. It's an old game that's been going on for almost 60 years. The only difference now is they don't shoot at our planes anymore.
