Russian bombers near the Finnish border for the first time… What does that mean?

by archyde
newspaper "The Sun" British, the Israeli intelligence company "ImageSat International" Detected an unusual presence of Russian strategic bombers Tu-160 and"Tu95" in Olinya Air Basewhich has been used since the Cold War era as a field of deployment for the Russian Air Force, and would have served as a staging ground for nuclear strikes on the United States.

According to the images obtained by the company, four Tu-160 launchers have been stationed since August 21 and three Tu-95 missiles Since September 25. The base did not witness the presence of any strategic bombers before this date, which indicates that it was transferred there recently, which increased fears of Putin’s resort to the use of nuclear weapons.

The bombers are believed to have been transferred from Engels Air Base in the Saratov region in southwest Russia – about 700 kilometers southeast of Moscow and home to the only Russian strategic bombers stationed near Ukraine, including the Tu-160 and Tu-95
Bombers capable of carrying cruise missiles and strategic nuclear weapons have been active in the Ukraine war since the start of the military operation in February, but their operations are shrouded in secrecy.

According to the newspaper, it was not clear why the bombers were transferred to the Olinya air base, which houses Russia’s Northern Fleet and huge weapons, including nuclear weapons, but it said that these mysterious movements of the bombers come at a time when Putin continues to threaten the West with the possibility of using nuclear weapons to defend the newly annexed territories. Be warned, it’s not a hoax.

Finland, which shares a 1,300 km border with Russia and Sweden, did not enter into military alliances during the Cold War, and its decision to join the Western alliance represented the biggest change in the European security system in decades as it would double NATO’s land borders with Russia, and give the alliance He controlled almost the entire Baltic coast.

What does Russia have in store?

On the Russian preparations, the American expert in security and strategic affairs, Irina Zuckerman, said that there has been unrest between Russia and Finland since it applied to join NATO and purchased a fleet of American F-35 aircraft.

Zuckerman added, to"Sky News Arabia": "probably Russia It is planning provocative maneuvers instead of an attack because its air force is in poor shape, poorly trained, suffered losses in the war with Ukraine and does not want to open a new front".

He continued: "Russia cannot maintain an open front even with a small country like Finland because it is well equipped and in a better condition overall. Previously, Russia threatened Finland with nuclear weapons if it tried to advance to NATO, and it did not follow through".

It considered that “it is highly unlikely that Russia will use nuclear weapons anywhere, including Ukraine, even if it is out of spite, because the attack will not only help it in any way, but will lead to a strong response from a number of countries. If Putin was interested in using nuclear weapons he would have used them in the early stages of the war when it could have made a difference in the outcome in Kyiv and before many people were sacrificed".

He pointed out that "It makes no sense for him to muster 300,000 people and withdraw from strategic areas if he wants to use nuclear weapons. Putin is well aware that the threats he makes can be strong against the residents of many Eastern and Central European countries to deter them from getting bogged down, but the threat will not affect the United States nor prevent it from delivering more weapons. After making the same threat several times".

Last July, the Finnish parliament passed a law allowing for enhanced protection on the border with Russia, fearing that Moscow would use migrants to exert political pressure.
