When it comes to Russia, it appears likely that their KGB-influenced government is a little less suave than they think they are. Instead of honing a James Bond-like visage, we’re getting a Mr. Bean spy-flick vibe.
They’re always just a little too on the nose in their portraying of the “cunning villain”, and this week was no exception.
PARANOID Vladimir Putin was seen attending a Moscow funeral today surrounded by military guards carrying Russia’s ‘secret nuclear briefcase’.
The Russian president arrived at Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow, to pay his respects to firebrand ultra-nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
Putin has been hinting at nuclear war for months now.
The visible presence of a top military officer carrying the launch apparatus for the Kremlin’s strategic missiles is thought to be a chilling sign that warmongering Putin could deploy devastating nuclear weapons.
The images come seven weeks after the leader put his nuke weapons on alert after lashing out at the NATO alliance over what he claimed were ‘aggressive’ sanctions.
This not-so-subtle threat to the rest of the world has shown us a great deal about Putin’s current mindset, which appears to have all of the frantic paranoia of a rat in a trap.
