Moscow aware of NATO’s plans to attack Russia

Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Russian administration was aware of the plans of Russia's potential enemies to start a war against the Russian Federation.


“Our awareness of what plans the US and other Western countries’ militaries are nursing in relation to the Russian Federation is guaranteed,” Lavrov said during the “Territory of Meanings” youth forum. The minister also said that Russia’s military presence in the world ensures the nation’s security and defense capability. Despite recent changes in the global agenda, Russian citizens will be protected accordingly, he added.

Lavrov’s remarks on the subject were not incidental. NATO regularly conducts exercises near Russian borders, especially in the Baltic countries. At the same time, the presence of US Navy vessels in the Black Sea has been growing steadily. NATO officials, including Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, constantly speak about “Russia’s aggression” and NATO’s need in defence.

In February of this year, Lavrov spoke about NATO member states preparing a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russia, linking those efforts with large-scale military exercises near Russian borders.

NATO continues its expansion policy and does not mind accepting Georgia. These statements, however, are still extremely difficult to implement in practical terms. For Georgia to join the alliance, NATO should first recognise South Ossetia and Abkhazia as sovereign and independent states. Needless to say that the West is not ready to do it.

At the same time, NATO continues the program for the modernisation of non-strategic B61 nuclear bombs in Europe. This is an American weapon that should be upgraded before 2024. There were 150 such bombs in Europe as of the winter of 2017. This fact does not contribute to easing tensions  between Russia and a number of Western countries either.

This is probably one of the reasons why Putin paid so much attention to the development of new types of nuclear weapons when he delivered his annual speech to the Federal Assembly. It is worth mentioning here that Russia has completed the trials for the new weapons and launched serial production of some of them.

In general, the awareness of potential threats is a normal situation for any developed country, and this is what Sergei Lavrov meant when he spoke at the forum. NATO does not want to stop its manoeuvres against “those Russians,” although this is a political and demonstrative step. However, such a demonstration of power, in turn, makes it clear that Russia needs to continue strengthening its own armed forces as well.

  1. While you guys are busy nuking everyone who will be arresting the Rothchild’s Rockefeller’s and their minions? Be thorough this time. Please.

  2. NATO is a non-entity and in a matter of warlike moments will disappear in its entirety. Russia is not a threat but push it too far will seal your end. And then, all ends up, Last Post: “Sincerely regret loss of your son, (Fill in name …”) John McCain, Lindsey Graham…for Uncle Sam.

  3. The United States is no longer the “shining star on a hill” and frankly never was. It has been hi jacked by criminal gangsters in Israel with the aid of traitors and whores in Congress, many of whom are also dual citizens of Israel. This combination is the biggest threat to world peace today not Russia. If any country is to be the savior of mankind it is most certainly not the “1984 totalitarian country of censorship and gangsters and secret CIA criminals” in the U.S. and running the U.S. today.
    Frankly it wouldn’t be a bad idea for world peace, for Putin to order a preemptive strike and say turn NY into ashes along with DC to show the world who is boss today. Don’t miss Israel lover liar con artist draft dodger Trump tower either. Make it look like Nagasaki or Hiroshima after WWII. This is the only kind of language the Israeli thugs running the U.S. today might understand. After all they run around the world conducting terrorism every day on this planet with impunity don’t they? If Putin doesn’t do it, they will do it to him first! Look at what they did to the unarmed Mercy ship the other day from Norway!
