MOSCOW, August 11. Air defense systems in the Far East are brought into a state of heightened alertness due to the situation around the DPRK, said Senator Viktor Ozerov, who previously headed the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security.

"What is happening around North Korea now gives us a sense of concern and understanding of the need for additional measures to protect our territory." The air defense forces and the air force are strengthened in the Far Eastern region, "- he said.

The senator noted that among the tasks of air defense is to ensure the security of the territory of Russia in the case of incorrectly embedded coordinates of North Korean missiles, since "the probability of error here is quite high," but there are also more serious tasks.

According to him, to enhance security in the Far East, Russia is prompted not only by actions of North Korea, but also by the possible response of the United States to them.
The tension around the Korean peninsula once again intensified after US President Donald Trump promised Pyongyang "fire and fury" if it was a real danger to the United States. In response, North Korea was told that they were studying the possibility of a missile strike against military targets on the American island of Guam, to which Trump had threatened the DPRK with "an event that no one had ever seen before."

"Trump's response to Pyongyang's statements is understandable and justified, it's impermissible for one state in the world to threaten another with strikes," Ozerov said, noting that the reaction of other countries in such a situation would be the same.

Military expert: the United States and the DPRK began preparations for military operations.
The senator said that the set of measures proposed by the world community for the settlement of the North Korean problem is not effective enough for the DPRK to realize the unfaithfulness of its actions. "These measures, unfortunately, do not give Pyongyang the reason to feel that their country is safe," - the parliamentarian said.
At the same time, Ozerov noted, and the "psychosis that became dominant in Pyongyang's position" only contributes to the deterioration of the situation, since "the path of blackmail can never yield acceptable results."
"Therefore, the fact that this hot spot is close to our borders, and the fact that North Korea does not behave in accordance with the norms of international law and evokes an understandable US response, can not but cause Russia's concern," the senator said. .

Although it mentions the bringing of forces into high alert, this news mostly consists of the words of politicians. I'm not sure where to put this topic: In Military Events or in the Geopolitical Events.
Administration, determine the place of this topic, please.

Interesting development, this feels like an endorsement for US military action by the Russians.

Happy to hear this Russian senator understand the position of the United States.

We've accepted NK threatening us for decades when it was just bluffing domestic propaganda.

Now that NK can act on it's threats they are held to a higher standard.
