- ‘BEGINNING OF THE END’: Fears Russia-Ukraine War Could Erupt in DAYS With UK on ‘High Alert’ as US Flies Nuke Bombers Nearby

THE Russia-Ukraine crisis could “erupt into all-out war” within days after the Kremlin threatened to “end” Kiev as military tensions were pushed to breaking point.
The terrifying news comes amid reports US nuclear bombers have been patrolling the skies after Moscow deployed tens of thousands of troops to the flashpoint border. It’s been reported senior British commanders and Whitehall officials are on now “high alert” amid the simmering crisis and are said to be monitoring the escalating situation “with growing concern.”
One source told the Mirror: “Aggressive Russian troop movements towards the border have caused a great deal of concern within the Ministry of Defence. “The situation is being monitored constantly. I would definitely describe this as a growing crisis.”
It was originally thought any attack from Russia would come next month, but now the full might of Vladimir Putin’s military machine is expected to close in on the Ukraine within days. A fleet of Russian warships is already heading towards the Caspian Sea armed with artillery and other weapons to back up Russia’s “battle ready” land units.
The Kremlin said in a statement: “As part of the winter training check, more than 10 amphibious and artillery boats and vessels of the southern military district are conducting an inter-fleet move.” The increased threat to the Ukraine comes after one of Putin’s most senior officials, Dmitry Kozak, threatened its neighbour would not survive if Russia took military action.
