Russia Conducts Drills, Moves Missiles in Run-Up To War

While the mainstream media spent the past couple weeks huffing and puffing over decade-old comments made by Donald Trump, they were silent about the fact that Russia conducted a series of emergency drills and moved missiles close enough to strike Western Europe. Is this because, like they said in regards to Syria, the Russians fear World War Three is on the horizon, an assessment helped in no small part by the fact that the State Department threatened them with just that?

“Citing routine drills, Russia has even moved missiles within striking range of NATO targets, into the Kaliningrad enclave bordering Poland and Lithuania.

Meanwhile, CNN informs us that:

‘Moscow abruptly left a nuclear security pact, citing U.S. aggression, and moved nuclear-capable Iskandar missiles to the edge of NATO territory in Europe. Its officials have openly raised the possible use of nuclear weapons.’

Russia may be preparing their population for ‘difficult times.’ Citing local media, The Daily Mail reports that Russia is ordering all of its officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, fearing a global war. Politicians and high-ranking figures allegedly received a warning from President Vladimir Putin to return to the ‘Motherland.’

The Daily Mail added that all this is occurring while ‘Putin cancelled a planned visit to France amid a furious row over Moscow’s role in the Syrian conflict.’

UPI further confirmed the growing strain in relations between Russia and the West:

‘Tensions continue to rise between the United States and Russia as the Russian foreign minister said Sunday recent actions and statements threaten his country’s national security. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a television interview Sunday the United States and NATO were taking aggressive steps rooted in ‘Russophobia’ and that recent remarks by leaders pose a threat to Russia’s national security.’

This tension is spilling out into territory beyond the U.S. as well, as reports show the  European Union is less likely to ease sanctions on Moscow over Ukraine, now that Russia has intensified air strikes on E.U. and U.S.-friendly rebels in Syria. They are even considering more punitive steps.”
