Russia orders MASS EVACUATION over North Korea missile launch

RUSSIA has dramatically relocated 1,500 people from its border with North Korea after Kim Jong-un's latest missile launch, it was reported today.

By Joshua Nevett / Published 29th August 2017

Russian civil defence officials were reportedly ordered to shift residents in the country's far east to "safe areas" in a extraordinary move amid fears of a worldwide conflict.

North Korea angered the international community by launching a missile that flew directly over Japan.

In response, US President Donald Trump threatened the communist state with military action, warning "all options are on the table".

As Trump reeled from the provocative test, thousands of people from the city of Vladivostok were moved as part of an emergency operation.

Russia President Vladimir Putin fears the US may wage war against the secretive state after Trump threatened to unleash "fire and fury" should it fire more missiles.

The order to evacuate residents "came from the regional department of the Russian Ministry of Emergencies", according to pro-Kremlin media outlets.

Russia shares a 24 mile land border with reclusive North Korea.

The civil protection department in Vladivostok was instructed to relocate residents living in the border area with North Korea.

The relocation was later described as a "training exercise", but it was unclear where the 1,500 were moved, according to FedPress.ru.

I thought Russia was providing Kim Jong Un with ‘protection, since he couldn’t trust his own people unless they too were being watched.

In what universe is 1,500 people a mass evacuation? That’s a small town.

I hope Kim gets a good look at that (possible) evacuation.

Hopefully his best allies will peel off as he going more and more postal.

“MASS EVACUATION”

1,500 people moved out of the 600,000 in Vladivostok. That’s 0.25% of the population.

Makes me wonder if Putin knows something Kim doesn’t.

Don’t know the area, but perhaps those 1,500 were very close to the border, and they wanted to move them back a ways.

Could have simply been for affect too.

Cause Kim to take notice and second guess his actions.

As Trump reeled from the provocative test,

Got to love the media for never missing an opportunity to inject fake news.

That’s what the article says — they moved those close to the 24 mile border.

If you look at a map, Vladivostok is hundreds of miles from the NK border. Maybe the displaced people were moved to Vladivostok?

Despite the smoke & mirrors BS, Russia is probably giving NK their marching orders. Perhaps they think the time is here to trigger WW3.

The Russians are brilliant chess players who think many moves ahead of their opponents. They are masters of deception. To take anything they do at 'face value' is beyond naive.

Maybe those were just the ones that aren’t expendable.

Russians in the Army have just now given up wrapping their feet with strips of cloth instead of putting on socks

don’t be fooled
