CBS News: “Russia will deploy two advanced missile systems to its far-west territory of Kaliningrad in a direct response to NATO expansion in eastern Europe, a pro-Kremlin Russian lawmaker said Friday.
Viktor Ozerov, chairman of the defense committee in the Federation Council, Russia’s equivalent to the U.S. Senate, said according to the state-run RIA news agency that Russia had been forced into the deployment by the installation of a U.S. missile shield in eastern Europe.
Opinion: It was the stare seen around the world.
On November 20, Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama discussed the stalling peace process in Ukraine and continuing conflict in Syria during a brief meeting on the margins of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Peru. The conversation was said to be mostly about Syria but no agreement was reached.
Now the Russian czar is sending a message to both Obama and Trump; don’t mess with Eastern Europe.
New US presidents are usually tested early and it appears that Putin is wasting no time. Looking more and more like Gog of Ezekiel 38:1-2, Putin is sending a clear message that there will be no stopping him from his well articulated dream of re-building the Soviet Union by bringing eastern Europe back under the Russian orbit.
Bible prophecy is clear, however, that in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ, the revived Roman Empire of Antichrist will be the dominant power on Earth, and the eastern European countries that Putin wants so badly will remain in the EU.
