Russia Announces MAJOR Escalation

Russia now sits between a rock and a hard place. …

Directly following the introduction of Finland as NATO’s newest member on Tuesday, Russia immediately announced defensive countermeasures.

ABC News had more on the story:

Putin has said that construction of storage facilities for tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus will be complete by July 1 and added that Russia has helped modernize Belarusian warplanes to make them capable of carrying nuclear weapons.
