As the world teeters ever closer into careless chaos, Russia have released footage of their missiles being launched into the sky in a test run.
The video, released by the Russian government funded RT, shows a Kuznetsk missile boat launching numerous missiles to test the air defence system of the new Admiral Makarov frigate on the Baltic Sea.
This particular clip shows the final stage of the missile testing, in which over 10 ships were used.
The worrying clip comes just days after Japan deployed two fighter jets after six Russian bomber aircrafts were seen near Japanese airspace.
Following clashes between Trump and Putin over Russia’s ties to Assad in Syria, last week, U.S secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, said relations between Washington and Moscow are at an all time ‘low point’.
However – it isn’t just Syria that Trump and Putin are at a feud over. No, the thorn in everybody’s side, North Korea, is also there, niggling away – as always.
In response to a statement made by Mike Pence saying the U.S is running ‘out of patience’ with North Korea, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed he hopes they don’t intervene like they have done before.
I hope that there won’t be any unilateral actions like we recently saw in Syria and that the US will follow the policies Trump repeatedly declared during his election campaign.
Right now there are only ten countries in the world not at war. Why do we love power and control so damn much?
