North Korea nuclear test provocative - Putin

Russian Federation may be forced to take military measures to counterbalance the deployment of the US THAAD missile defense systems to South Korea and Japan, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Monday.

Police dispersed the residents around 5 a.m. but only after dozens of locals and police officers sustained injuries and were taken to nearby hospitals.

The THAAD equipment was carried by about 10 USA military vehicles from Osan Air Base, some 70 kilometers south of Seoul. The Ministry of National Defense said the number of police forces may grow to 8,000 in the likelihood of violent protests.

There are now two launchers at the location, a former golf course. A THAAD battery is known to require at least six rocket launchers, also involving a fire control and communications unit.

"The government promised to inform us a day before the additional deployment".

Russian Federation and China have proposed a "double-freeze" plan which would see Pyongyang suspend its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in exchange for a halt in joint US-South Korea military drills.

Hundreds of protesters gathered on the road to the base to block the planned movement of the Thaad launchers and construction materials.

North Korea says it detonated a hydrogen bomb in its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.

In July 2016, Seoul and Washington agreed to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea's Seongju County amid growing tensions spurred by North Korea's ballistic and nuclear tests. China has opposed deployment of THAAD, saying its powerful radar can probe deep into its territory, undermining its security. Seoul and Washington claim THAAD is defensive in nature and is only aimed at the North. Kim Hyun-bin, Arirang News.

The Russian leader, speaking in China on Tuesday, condemned the latest nuclear test as provocative, but said Russia views sanctions on North Korea as "useless and ineffective".
