VLADIMIR PUTIN’S imperialist ambitions were laid bare today with an announcement that the secretive Russian war machine is planning to build three new military bases in the Arctic – just 300 miles from the US mainland.

Moscow also revealed blueprints for a new army base on the disputed Kurile islands – some of which are situated less than 20 miles from Japan.

Mr Putin is already flexing his military muscles in Syria with air and sea bases and a bombing campaign that has decimated ISIS strongholds. Russian expansionism has also seen the Crimean peninsula invaded and annexed.

But, in a significant ramping up of Russia’s military reach, Mr Putin hopes to taunt US and Japanese officials with outposts in the Arctic and Pacific.

The plans mean Moscow will have troops, warplanes and military vehicles stationed in all four corners of the Asian continent.

“This is a really large base that was never seen during the Soviet times, and it has modern equipment, all of the needed equipment for these boundaries”, stated Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu.

It will be seen by both Washington and Beijing as a direct challenge to military supremacy in the region.

In the Pacific, a new Russian base on the Kurile islands is likely to worsen already frayed relations with Tokyo which lays claim to the Southern Kuriles, known in Japan as the Northern Territories.

Russia seized the islands from Japan at the end of World War Two and the dispute is so acrimonious that Moscow and Tokyo have still not signed a formal peace treaty after the war.

In the Arctic, Russia is building or plans to build a series of new military bases on Wrangel Island, Kotelny Island and at Cape Schmidt, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu confirmed.

He said Russia planned to “completely finish the creation and arming of the entire Arctic grouping” by 2018.

Mr Shoigu added: “We’re not hiding this from anyone, we have practically finished creating the base in the Novosibirsk Archipelago, on the island of Kotelny.

“This is a really large base that was never seen during the Soviet times, and it has modern equipment, all of the needed equipment for these boundaries.”

Mr Putin has promised not to militarise the Arctic, but officials have made it clear that Russia will take steps to ensure it remains well defended in the region.

But crucially, it is just 320 miles from Point Hope in Alaska.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
