Russia Sends Troops To North Korea Border

Russia sends troops to North Korea border as tensions escalate

Russian president Vladimir Putin has reportedly ordered troops and weapons to be sent to the country’s 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 Korea’s latest failed test.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said: ‘We’re reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage with us.’

Hwang Kyo-ahn, the acting president of South Korea, has also called for security agencies and international regimes to remain vigilant after North Korea launched a missile into the sea last week.

No idea what this means.

Can you elaborate on what the "famous last words" are and what big deal is?

Sounds like alarmist nonsense to me so I must be missing something.

Seems like you need more relevant examples for "famous last words". 

"Nah, I'll only drink 2 beers tonight"

"Eh, the girlfriend will never find out"

"Why bother running the ball, it's not like we'll get a strip sack safety"

Under the "learn something new everyday" column: Russia has a border with North Korea. 

I love maps and consider myself fairly well verse in world geography but I had to go to Google Maps to check this out; looks like it's about 11 miles long.

Fun fact - There is one country between North Korea and Finland.

I didn't know they shared a border either.  I knew they were close but didn't realize they had a common border.

I forgot Azerbaijan exists :shrug: 

Also I do believe Lithuania does border Russia, they (Russia) have a very small piece of land on the Baltic Sea.

It's actually a very strategic piece of land.  The Baltic States are always worried Russia is going to try to reconnect the land by conquering them.
