Putin Positioning Nuclear Weapons In Crimea?

It may be the most under-reported story of the day but credible intelligence sources are claiming that Putin is preparing to move - or may have already moved - nuclear weapons into Crimea.

(WND) Moscow could be preparing to move nuclear weapons into the Crimean Peninsula, which it annexed last year, and also position them around the strategic Russian enclave of Kaliningrad near the periphery of NATO countries, in possible violation of the 2010 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, according to a WND source.

The move would send a message to NATO to limit its eastward progression, in line with the new military doctrine Moscow released in December.

A source who has worked in past U.S. administrations on nuclear-weapon issues told WND that such a buildup in Crimea could include nuclear weapons, and there is a question whether it would be a violation of the 2010 START treaty, since Crimea has been annexed by Russia.

If not strategic nuclear weapons, Moscow could move tactical nukes into Crimea, the source said.

Moscow may already have moved nuclear weapons into Kaliningrad and Crimea, but WND was unable to independently verify the reports.

  1. Wouldn't be surprised if some are slated to be hidden on ships for delivery to other countries. That's what Kruchev did to get missiles to Cuba.

  2. For years the US military believed, and I still do, that deterrence was the best road to prevent an all out nuclear war. What ever happened to that philosophy? Most people of my day referred to this period as the COLD WEAR years. During my 26 year military career we were on alert 24 hours a day 365 days a years. This all went away because of agreements with other nuclear powers, including Russia. Is Russia reneging on this agreement? Should we reverse course also? We cant just sit ideally by and let Russia get a heads up in us. That would be a very dangerous position for our country to be in.
