Russia Places Nuclear Missiles Next to Lithuania; Flies Nuclear Bombers on US Airspace in Europe

In what is being seen by international affairs experts as a re-commitment to a cold war-like military strategy, reports indicate that Russia not only has placed nuclear missiles close to its border with Lithuania and Poland, but Russian President Vladimir Putin has also signed off on a division of nuclear bombers to fly patrols over American airspace in Eastern Europe, the Inquisitr website reports today (October 21, 2016).

The military moves -- which have increased fears among NATO countries of an imminent invasion that could lead to World War III -- come as tensions mount between the United States and Russia.

This tension includes the continued economic sanctions being levied against Russia for seizing Ukraine territory and the recent break-off of negotiations concerning the Syrian civil war.

Russia's placement of nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad -- which borders Lithuania -- was followed by the creation of a new division of nuclear bombers to patrol airspace that has not been patrolled since the end of the cold war in 1991.
