Re: World War 3 or just a local spat in Ukraine?

Russia announces today that their nuclear-responsible forces are holding a major drill this month. Of course, nobody should take this statement "out of context", it has "nothing to do with Ukraine", it was "planned months in advance", "everything is normal", "these are not the droids you are looking for", etc...

The forces responsible for Russia's strategic nuclear arsenal will conduct major exercises this month involving more than 4,000 soldiers, the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday

Supersonic MiG-31 fighter-interceptors and Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft would take part, Andreyev said, saying the scale of air power involved was unprecedented for exercises of this kind.
