Putin Sends Troops To Russia’s Border With North Korea


Vladimir Putin is sending troops and equipment to Russia’s border with North Korea over fears the US is preparing to attack Kim Jong-un.

The Russian President fears there will be a huge exodus of North Korean refugees if his American counterpart, Donald Trump, launches military action against Pyongyang.

It comes days after it emerged that China is also sending 150,000 soldiers to its southern frontier to cope with the tidal wave of North Koreans Beijing fears would flee across the border if war breaks out.

This morning, footage emerged appearing to show how Putin is reinforcing his 11-mile border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment.

A video purports to show one of three trains loaded with military equipment moving towards the 11 mile-long land frontier between Russia and the repressive state.

Another evidently highlights military helicopter movements 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 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 military veteran Stanislva Sinitsyn.

Duquesne University student who tried to burn flag near Trump supporters takes plea deal

A Duquesne University graduate student who last year scuffled with Donald Trump supporters while trying to burn an American flag in Downtown Pittsburgh pleaded guilty Tuesday to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct.

The Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office dropped more serious counts filed against Joshua Sturman, 23, in return for his guilty plea to the summary offense.

Sturman, who is originally from California, had faced charges of risking a catastrophe, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment, simple assault and disorderly conduct.

“The plea was an appropriate resolution given the facts of the case,” said Mike Manko, spokesman for Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.

Richard Dillon of Ross, one of the Trump supporters who was Downtown when the incident occurred, disagreed. Appearing at a hearing before Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Judge Randall Todd, Dillon criticized the plea deal, saying Sturman should have been held to the felony.

“This was a terrorist attack,” he said of Sturman’s actions.

Sturman and his attorney, Paul Boas, declined to comment after the hearing.

Pittsburgh police charged Sturman on July 30 , the day that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visited Pittsburgh to appear at a campaign rally in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Police said Sturman, wearing a red bandanna over his face and carrying an American flag, approached a group of Trump supporters protesting Clinton’s visit. A struggle started when several of the protestors, including Dillon, attempted to stop Sturman from setting the flag ablaze, according to police.

It is not illegal to burn an American flag.

Dillon, 68, said he grabbed the flag, fearing for the safety of protesters. He said Sturman assaulted him and snatched a Trump campaign “Make America Great Again” ball cap he was wearing. Dillon wore the same cap, which he said is signed by Vice President Mike Pence, to the hearing.

Boas told Todd that Sturman is scheduled to graduate this year from Duquesne with a master’s degree. He has a 3.8 grade-point average, has served as an intern with the Thomas Merton Center and does volunteer work in the city, Boas said.

Todd sentenced Sturman to three months’ probation.

Macron brags about Obama call. but ex-US president denies endorsing French leadership hopeful


Tecumseh, Kansas, near Topeka is home to perhaps the worst driver in the world. Known by many as “The CR-V Lady,” Patricia McDonald has garnered such a reputation from her poor driving that there’s actually a Facebook page called “CRV Lady Awareness Of Topeka” to warn citizens of her whereabouts. After readers sent them a number of photos and videos showing a woman driving a Honda CR-V recklessly near Topeka, a local news station found that the woman — identified as Patricia McDonald — has been cited over 20 times since 1996.

The news site says a more recent run-in with law enforcement happened in the spring of 2016, when McDonald parked her car in the middle of the road. Since that case was finalized in October, McDonald has received five additional tickets.
