Russia have test-fired a hi-tech ballistic missile in ‘preparation for big war.’
Yeah, you read it right. Not small war, or even regular war. But BIG war. Just the thought is enough to make you shudder.
Russia launched its Iskander-M weapons system as part of the Zapad 2017 war games.
The Kremlin however denies the missiles are anything ‘out of the ordinary’ report the Daily Star.
General Petr Pavel, head of NATO’s military committee, said:
All together, what we see is a serious preparation for big war.
When we only look at the exercise that is presented by Russia there should be no worry.
But when we look it in the big picture, we have to be worried, because Russia was not transparent.
The missile flew 480km before landing in the Makat range in Kazakhstan – its intended target.
They are said to be capable of shooting down planes and helicopters alongside destroying artillery.
NATO has been keeping an eye out on the nation amid worries Russia plan to deploy up to 100,000 soldiers.
Deputy chief of the Foreign Affairs Committe Vladimir Dzhabarov slated the notion, saying:
Americans constantly conduct excercises in the Japanese and East China Seas, but they don’t attack North Korea or China.
Hoo-boy. Has someone gone and stuck that cold war back in the oven?
