Is this russian vine ?

Just wondered if this is russian vine reappearing, it was everywhere before the neighbours replaced the fence.

How is the best way to get rid of it, it seems to be a pretty invasive plant from what I've read about it.

    Looks like it to me.  Bruise the leaves then spray with a glyphosate weedkiller and wait until it's died right back before pulling it up.  It may take two or three goes.

    Thank you Dove.  Are you able to recommend a specific glyphosate weedkiller ?  Everyone talks about glyphosate but don't specify which brand to buy.  Do I paint it onto the leaves in order to stop it going on other plants ?

    I've been using Resolva for the past couple of years and it seems effective on most things.  I'd spray it directly onto the Russian Vine - if there's other plants about you can screen them with a piece of cardboard box.  You can get a weedkiller with glyphosate in it that you can paint on but I'm not sure what it's called - if you ask at the garden centre someone will know the one I mean I'm sure. 

    As soon as the spray has dried it's not harmless to people/animals etc, and it will do no damage to the soil.
