Russia has reportedly sent troops and equipment to its border with North Korea, as the United States and North Korea trade threats of military attacks against one another.

Video footage has emerged appearing to show trains carrying heavy military equipment, including armored personnel carriers and helicopters, toward Russia’s southeast on the Khabarovsk-Vladivostok highway on Saturday and Sunday, local media reported.

The city of Vladivostok, which hosts Russia’s Pacific Fleet, is just 100 miles from the North Korean border.

“Some say the situation around North Korea is fiction, but this is the third train of equipment we’ve seen since this morning,” a man can be heard saying in the video. “Looks like something is being sent to the Korean border.”

One of three trains filmed was also loaded with Tor surface-to-air missiles. It was reportedly traveling through Khabarovsk in the direction of Russia’s border with the North.

Another video apparently shows the movement of at least military helicopter and army combat vehicles movements towards the North Korean border.

A spokesman for the Eastern Military District, Colonel Alexander Gordeev, said that the Tor missiles filmed in the region were likely returning from exercises last month in neighboring Buryatia.

The Russian government on Friday declined to comment on the reports. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said deployments of Russian troops inside Russia’s own borders were not a public matter.
