Another scene shows military helicopter appearing to move towards the North Korean border and manoeuvres across rough terrain by army combat vehicles.
Other reports suggest there have been military moves by road as well.
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.
“Railway trains loaded with military equipment moving towards Primorsky region via Khabarovsk have been noticed by locals,” reported primemedia.ru in the Russian far East – linking the development to the North Korean crisis.”
“The movement of military equipment by different means of transport to southern areas is being observed across Primorsky region over the past week,” said a Russian military expert. “Many relate this to the situation in the Korean peninsula.”
The mobilization comes as Russia, fearing an imminent war between the United States and North Korea, prepares for a possible humanitarian crisis of refugees fleeing the conflict and flooding in to Russia and China.
President Putin has also warned citizens living in the region that if the United States were to strike nuclear facilities inside North Korea, the atomic contamination could spill across the border in to Russia.
“Should the US strike with missiles at North Korea’s nuclear facilities, a radioactive cloud will reach Vladivostok within two hours,” said a Russian nuclear scientist.”
