YIKES: Russia Relocating Nuclear Equipment in Troubling Turn of Events

Throughout his abysmal and faltering invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has repeatedly suggested that he may be willing to use nuclear weapons in order to get what he wants.

His media surrogates have echoed the calls as well, leading many on the world’s stage to wonder if Putin, (who may be dying of cancer), is simply fetishizing the use of atomic munitions on account of the fact that he won’t be around long enough to be harangued for it.

And while the global community has largely dismissed this as the bluster of a desperate man, there are signs that Putin may be getting ready to pull the proverbial trigger.

A huge freight train moving specialist military equipment associated with a nuclear-arms wielding division of Russia’s Defence Ministry has been spotted on the move, prompting fears of an escalation in Putin‘s war.

A series of BPM-97 armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and other military vehicles were seen travelling through central Russia in a clip posted on the Telegram messaging app by pro-Russian channel Rybar on Sunday.

The APCs are thought to have been upgraded with more capable turrets, reinforced ambush and mine-proof armour and an air purification system designed to allow its occupants to operate effectively in the face of sustained infantry attacks.

Such advanced military hardware, the likes of which have scarcely been deployed on the frontlines in Ukraine, reportedly belong to the 12th Main Directorate of the Russian MoD.

Here is where it gets worrisome:

This specialist division is dedicated to the storage, maintenance and provision of weapons to the likes of the Strategic Rocket Forces, a Russian military branch that controls nuclear missiles and forms a key part of Putin’s nuclear programme.

Military analyst Konrad Musyka claimed the deployment of such units could signal a coming escalation in the conflict from the warmongering Russian president or constitute a precursor to large scale nuclear drills.

It comes as NATO warned member states that Russia’s state-of-the-art Belgorod nuclear submarine has left its White Sea base, while key Putin ally Ramzan Kadyrov said Russia’s military should use ‘low-yield nuclear weapons’ to turn the tide of the war in Ukraine.

Such a move would undoubtedly escalate the conflict to an obscene degree, forcing NATO and her western allies to intervene on behalf of the Ukrainian people.
