Armed Russian troops have been dispatched to the a key border where the country meets China and North Korea.

As political tensions between Kim Jong-un and the rest of the western world continues to ramp up, Vladimir Putin’s soldiers equipped with rifles and guard dogs were sent to a key crossing in the South East of Russia.

They were pictured patrolling the top of Zaozyornaya Hill at the Khasan crossing point on the Russian-North Korean border in the tri-border area where the boundaries of Russia, China and North Korea meet.

With the war of words between the rogue state’s dictator and US President Donald Trump prompted Putin to wade into the argument this week saying a conflict on the Korean peninsula would be ‘catastrophic’.

The Kremlin is casting its military net far and wide with soldiers stationed all over the world on various operations.

The Russian military on Tuesday test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile and also launched drills involving missile units in Siberia.

The Defense Ministry said a Topol ICBM was launched from the Kapustin Yar launch facility in southwestern Russia, and its practice warhead successfully hit a designated target at the Sary-Shagan firing range in Kazakhstan.

The ex-Soviet neighbors have close economic and military ties.

The ministry said the missile test was part of efforts to develop new technologies for piercing missile defenses, but gave no specifics.
