Civil defence officials were ordered to shift 1,500 residents in Vladivostok to “safe areas”, according to pro-Kremlin media outlets.

Social media outlet Mash said this morning: “A verbal order was given to relocate 1,500 people to safe areas.

“The order came from the regional department of the Russian Ministry of Emergencies.”

Russia, which has political and business ties to Pyongyang, shares a 24-mile land border with reclusive North Korea.

It was unclear where the 1,500 were moved in the re-location, which was later described as a “training exercise”, according to

But it appears to have been triggered by the launch of a missile over Japan last night, in Kim Jong-un’s latest warning to North Korea’s enemies.

A source told the site: “A relocation scheme is being exercised as part of the training.”

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has warned that the North Korean crisis could morph into an armed confrontation.

Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said the country was “extremely worried” about the launch and the “tendency towards an escalation”.

He also urged Kim to abide by UN Security Council resolutions regarding the hermit state’s missile programme.

Mr Ryabkov told reporters: “Regarding the launching of the missiles from North Korea, we stick to the resolutions of the United Nations.

“We insist on the fact that the North Koreans must respect those resolutions from the United Nations.”
