Several nations are on edge as Russia reportedly started preparing its missiles without a hint of who will be the target. As Russia finds itself at odds with Western nations and NATO, there are growing concerns that Europe could be within the target range. Will Russia conquer Europe in the next World War?
Russia just reportedly issued an alarming warning to the West saying that it has spread its influence across Asia especially given the two-week military drill with Pakistan. It will be the first time that two enemies from the Cold War era will be doing training exercises together.
Russia Prepares Missiles to Attack
Apart from this, Vladimir Putin’s soldiers are reportedly testing their ability to launch the latest ballistic missile in the eastern part of the country. There will be around 200 troops – 70 Russian and 130 Pakistani – that will be part of the Friendship 2016 war games.
According to Express, the exercises will begin on Saturday and will be held in a mountainous area in the eastern Punjab province of Pakistan. The exercises are seen as a signal of the shifting alliances and forces in the South Asia region including the resurgence of Russian influence.
As NATO made it clear that it sees Russia as a threat, the alliance is now reviewing ‘nuclear playbook’ to deter ‘terrible attacks’ by Russia, according to the Pentagon chief.
“Russia has long been a nuclear power, but Moscow’s recent saber-rattling and building of new nuclear weapons systems raises serious questions about its leaders’ commitment to strategic stability, their regard for long-established accords of using nuclear weapons and whether they respect the profound caution that Cold War era leaders showed in respect to brandishing their nuclear weapons,” RT quoted Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
