Estonia: Russian nukes on the move
As reports also surface that Russian seeks to reactivate permanent bases in Cuba and Vietnam.
Putin is taking full advantage of the dysfunction of the Obama administration.
The Guardian reports, Russia moving nuclear-capable missiles into Kaliningrad, says Estonia:
Estonian officials have said that Russia appears to be moving powerful, nuclear capable missiles into Kaliningrad, a Russian outpost province sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic coast.
The Iskander-M missiles, which have a range of over 500km, are reportedly being transported by ship from the St Petersburg area. It had previously been reported that the Russians might seek to place the Iskander-M missiles in Kaliningrad but not until 2018-19.
If confirmed, the move would be seen by western governments as another sign that Russia is seeking to establish facts on the ground, from eastern Europe to the Middle East, before a new US president takes office in January.
Estonian officials said they were monitoring the ship and its contents. The ship, called the Ambal, was due to dock on Friday; reports of the cargo came from Estonian government sources.
Looks like Vlad is on the move just about everywhere:
Russia has its permanent air base in Syria. Now it’s looking at Cuba and Vietnam. https://t.co/t0o2ujEn64
