The United Kingdom reports that Royal Air Force Jets intercepted a Russian bomber … that was carrying a nuclear missile.
The missile was not armed, but Ministry of Defence sources describe the flight as “another in a series of deliberately provocative” actions by Vladimir Putin.
This comes as President Obama is considering shipping military arms and weapons to Ukraine as rebels backed by Russia … are trying to expand their territory by killing innocent civilians.
NATO is pushing for the U.S. to do more than supply gas defensive weapons to Ukraine … such as gas masks and radar to detect enemy planes. Ukrainian military intelligence says the rebels are getting military weapons that can only come from Russia.
The Russian Bear bomber that was spotted on radar towards the English Channel … is clearly a sign that Putin is reminding the West … of his capability.
Experts insist this is not reigniting cold war tensions between Russia and the United Kingdom, and such flights were a common practice prior to the downfall of the Communist in 1991 … but now, with the Ukraine situation — as one source said: Russia is … upping its game.
