It seems things are really starting to heat up on the geopolitical stage, particularly in the region of North Korea, as Russian President Vladimir Putin makes some big moves to try and protect his nation’s borders.
Apparently Putin is concerned that military action is soon going to take place between the U.S. and Kim Jong Un due to escalation in tensions in recent weeks.
As a result, Russia has moved troops to the Russian border along North Korea to prevent massive waves of refugees from flooding into the country should such action be taken.
According to The Daily Mail, Vladimir Putin is sending troops and equipment to Russia’s border with North Korea over fears the US is preparing to attack Kim Jong-un.
The Russian President fears there will be a huge exodus of North Korean refugees if his American counterpart, Donald Trump, launches military action against Pyongyang.
It comes days after it emerged that China is also sending 150,000 soldiers to its southern frontier to cope with the tidal wave of North Koreans Beijing fears would flee across the border if war breaks out.
This morning, footage emerged appearing to show how Putin is reinforcing his 11-mile border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment.
A video purports to show one of three trains loaded with military equipment moving towards the 11 mile-long land frontier between Russia and the repressive state.
Another evidently highlights military helicopter movements towards the North Korean border and manoeuvres across rough terrain by army combat vehicles.
There have been concerns that if a conflict breaks out Russia could face a humanitarian exodus from North Korea.
But Putin has been warned, too, that in the event of a US strike on Kim Jong-un’s nuclear facilities, contamination could swiftly reach Russia.
It makes you wonder if Putin knows something the rest of us don’t, since he obviously seems to be quite concerned about this actually happening.
Kim Jong-Un has been stirring the pot for a long time, and now that America is back on the world stage with leadership that possesses a spine, they’re doing their best to try and look like a bigger player than they actually are.
Let’s hope this is just all heavy-duty posturing and nothing more.
