As tensions boil over in the Middle East and relations between Obama and Putin have deteriorated, an official TV channel in Russia has issued a chilling warning that war with the West could be imminent.
(Metro UK) — Zvezda, a nationwide TV service run by the country’s Ministry of Defence, said last week, ‘Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.’
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday proposed a law suspending a Moscow-Washington agreement to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium.
Officials said on Friday that underground shelters had been built which could house 12 milion people – enough for the entire population of Moscow.
Russia has clashed with the Western powers over its policy in Syria – where it’s accused of bombing civilians – and the U.S suspended negotiations with the country yesterday.
Both Russia and NATO are still in the position to unleash global-scale nuclear attacks – and the weapons are armed and ready.
The Arms Control Association says, ‘United States and Russia still deploy more than 1,500 strategic warheads on several hundred bombers and missiles – far more than necessary to deter nuclear attack – and they are modernizing their nuclear delivery systems.
