The tensions between the United States and Russia have certainly not been fading off into the sunset in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections.
In fact given some of the latest military maneuvers coming from Moscow, it would be easy to believe that Russia is preparing for something huge on the horizon.
VLADIMIR Putin has tested his terrifying new missiles by blowing up a fleet of warships in a training exercise.
They were fired from a Su-34 long range strike aircraft and managed to sink a group of ships which were imitating a group of enemy vessels.
The training exercise was a triumph with all eight launches successfully striking the intended targets.Russia’s Ministry of Defence said: “Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers carried out practical launches of the newest guided anti-ship missiles Kh-35U.
“All in all eight launches were carried out, all missiles successfully hit targets.”
The news comes just days after the culmination of other massive Russian war games that happened to pull China into the mix as well, sending a few red flags flying on the global stage, (no pun intended on the flag color there).
All the while, the United States is preparing for the 2018 midterm elections; the first major contest since the democrats began purporting in earnest that Donald Trump is some sort of Russian double agent being either controlled or blackmailed by Russia, and whose election was only due to the Kremlin’s alleged “interference” in our 2016 general contest.
