Putin moves missiles to North Korea border as Russia gets ready for war
Russia ‘moves military forces’ to city bordering North Korea
Russia has reportedly moved weapons towards Vladivostok, just eight miles from the border with North Korea.
The city is within striking distance of Kim Jong-un’s secretive state.
And Russia and China have reportedly sent ships to shadow a US fleet sent to threaten North Korea.
Although unconfirmed by the Russian government, the movement of tanks and missiles was spotted by terrified people living in the border city and posted on social media.
According to reports, the military convoy caught on camera included eight surface-to-air missiles, all part of Russian Air Defence.
Vladimir Putin already has a major navy base in Vladivostok.
