    Meanwhile, South Korea announced the Russians violated the country’s air defense identification zone, known as KADIZ, but did not enter the country's airspace on Wednesday. “As the Russian aircraft entered the KADIZ in its nonehostile formation yesterday morning, a squadron of our Air Force jets made an emergency sorties," an official speaking on conditions of anonymity told the South Korean news agency Yonhap on Thursday.
    The US and South Korea began the long-planned joint military exercises on Monday, heightening tensions with Pyongyang which termed the drills a "reckless" step towards nuclear conflict.
    Russia, which shares a border with North Korea, has repeatedly voiced concerns about rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula caused by Pyongyang's nuclear missile program, and has also complained about possible plans by Japan to deploy a US anti-missile system on its soil.
    Russia opposes US-South Korea war games
    Moscow has meanwhile expressed opposition to the US-South Korea war games in the tensed Korean Peninsula. US forces have been packing its military troops and armament in the region as the world awaits the arrival of Trump for a tour next week. Putin has urged both North Korea and the US to back down from military confrontation amid threats of annihilation. He has warned any attempt by Trump to launch a preemptive strike on North Korea would end in disaster.
    "The US and South Korea holding yet more large-scale military and naval exercises does not help reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula," Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the foreign ministry, told a news briefing in Moscow.
    "We urge all sides to exercise maximum caution. Given the arms build-up in the region, any rash move or even an unintended incident could spark a military conflict."
    Russia warns US over anti-missile system deployment in Korean peninsula
    Tensions between Russia and the US are already strained over accusation of election hacking, the defeat of ISIS in Syria along with Free Syrian rebels which Washington supporting, the annexation of Crimea and the NATO build-up in the Baltic. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova complained about possible plans by Japan to deploy the US Aegis Ashore anti-missile system on its soil. She said if Tokyo did go ahead and opt to deploy such a system it would be disproportional to the North Korean missile threat and could upset wider strategic stability in the region.
    "It is obvious to us that the decision to purchase and deploy the new [Aegis Ashore] systems, if it is taken, should be considered as disproportionate to real missile threats in the region. It [the decision] is capable of undermining the stability in the North Pacific Ocean, given the eventual incorporation of this system into the military infrastructure of the Asian segment of the global US missile defense system," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman concluded.
    The current Korean Peninsula tensions have been triggered by increased provocations by the US which includes military drills and deployment of warships and submarines in the region. North insists that developing its military defenses including nuclear weapons is important to counter incessant provocations by the US including a possible nuclear aggression.
    Dr Petrov, from the Australian National University, said Russia wouldn’t directly side with North Korea in a potential war, but provide indirect support to China. "If North Korea is under attack China would probably step in, restore balance and rescue them one more time,” he explained. “Russia would be happy to support China logistically, but maybe not directly, and Russia would pretend to remain impartial in the conflict.”Dr Petrov added: “Russia is rather sympathetic to North Korea, but at the same time they are irritated and annoyed with North Korea’s persistent attempts to create nuclear weapons. However, he warned there is now a very real chance of war “escalating uncontrollably from human error, a misunderstanding, an overreaction, or misinterpretation from the other side”.
    The expert suggested something as simple as an “out of control rocket” or an “aircraft losing course” could trigger World War 3.
