Russia sends troops to North Korea border

Russian president Vladimir Putin has reportedly ordered troops and weapons to be sent to the countrys border with North Korea as tensions continue to escalate.

Unverified video footage appears to show a train, believed to be one of three, loaded with military equipment and headed towards the 11-mile border between Russia and the secretive hermit state.

Another video appears to show military helicopters moving towards the Russian border as well as army combat vehicles moving across rugged terrain.

A report from primemedia.RU claims: Railway trains loaded with military equipment moving towards Primorsky region via Khabarovsk have been noticed by locals.

A military official added: The movement of military equipment by different means of transport to southern areas is being observed across Primorsky region over the past week.

The movement comes only a day after Russia and the US clashed at the UN over a UN security council statement, drafted by the US, which condemned North Koreas latest failed test.
