Speaking to France24, military analyst Pavel Felgenhauer claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin has moved nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles into the field “for possible launch at America and its allies.” The military analyst stressed the situation has now got serious and highlighted this has been a “very vivid build up.” The terrifying news comes as Russia ramps up its presence on the Ukrainian border amid the threat of a full-blown war between the two nations.
Pavel Felgenhauer said: “There also been an official announcement that Russian nuclear deterrent has been put on heightened capability.
“And Russian mobile ICBM’s have been moved out of permanent storage into the field.”
Ukrainian forces have also dug trenches in preparation for war as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy are ready to fight.
And in a terrifying suggestion, he warned that the move was for “possible launch against America and its allies.”
He added: “This has been a very vivid build up.”

The military analyst went on to acknowledge the growing concern of the international community as western nations decide what to do about the looming threat of all-out war.
Mr Felgenhauer also added how Russia’s military intimidations have achieved the desired aim of provoking western countries including the USA.
He said: “Today Biden phoned Putin and this has been interpreted in Moscow as a victory for Russia, that Russian blackmail is working.”
Mr Felgenhauer concluded: “That means most likely there’s going to be more of that.”

On Tuesday the MoD confirmed six RAF Typhoons super-jets were being sent to Romania to patrol the skies around the Black Sea in a warning signal to Vladimir Putin.
They will be supported by troops from the RAF’s No 1 Expeditionary Logistics Squadron and No 2 Mechanical Transport Squadron.
All are being deployed from bases in the UK this week.
Estimates suggest between 50,000 and 80,000 Russian troops are now massed along Ukraine’s eastern border with their superpower neighbour and in Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.
