The crescendo of chaos continues in the east this week, as the Kremlin again inches closer to full-blown Armageddon on a worldwide scale.
The invasion of Ukraine has been an incredible embarrassment for Russia, and for Vladimir Putin as well, with the Kremlin’s once-feared fighting force being now reduced to the butt of a global joke.
Of course, this has Vladimir Putin looking for ways to save face, and he’s been using his nuclear arsenal to this end for months. His latest atomic maneuvering may be his most worrisome yet.
VLADIMIR Putin has renewed his nuke threat against the West by appearing to ready a nuclear missile for launch.
This was no minor missile.
The intercontinental ballistic missile has a 7,500 mile range and when nuclear-armed is reportedly 12 times more destructive than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
It was seen in Russian propaganda being installed in a launch-pad using a special transport and loading unit – but there is no indication of any order for an imminent launch.
Just weeks ago, a YARS missile was test launched by the Kremlin, but without the nuclear payload that this device likely carries.
Putin has also launched a “dummy” nuke into Ukraine, with many international observers seeing this as a warning from the Kremlin.
