Vladimir Putin has signed documents finalizing the Russian annexation of four regions in eastern Ukraine, meaning there's now a western-backed Ukrainian counteroffensive underway to recapture what Russia officially considers parts of its homeland.

Ukraine is readying evacuation centers in its capital city of Kyiv in preparation for a potential nuclear attack following warnings from Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country would take every necessary action to claim victory.

Putin recently threatened that Russia would not hesitate to deploy nuclear weapons against what he called “a threat to the territorial integrity of our country.” 

China warned the United States it could face severe consequences—including the prospect of nuclear war—if it allows Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), drawing the 30-member alliance into the country's conflict with Russia.

World War III Is Here!

Hegemon USA is at war on Russia.

So far, it’s largely by Ukrainian proxies, their Pentagon and CIA handlers.

It’s also by direct US involvement with its forces on the ground in Ukraine and occupied parts of Donetsk.

They’re operating HIMARS and other sophisticated weapons, ones shipped by the Pentagon and CIA to Kiev while instructing Ukrainian proxies on their use.

At no time since WW II ended was the ominous risk of another global war as likely as now, what may have already begun.

Today the US is deploying one of the world's most advanced aircraft carriers to the Atlantic, complete with nuclear reactors and fighter jets.

The USS Gerald R Ford is sailing from Virginia, USA to the Atlantic Ocean and carrying a NATO strike group.

It's unclear whether the launch is linked to the conflict in Ukraine but as the carrier cost the US more than $13billion (£11bn), the country's navy is obviously keen to show it off.

A military train that belongs to the forces responsible for Russia’s nuclear arsenal has been spotted moving toward the front lines in Ukraine, while Moscow was said to have deployed the world’s biggest submarine — dubbed a “city killer” — in the Arctic Circle.

These latest maneuvers could signal an increasingly desperate Vladimir Putin’s willingness to escalate the war following a series of embarrassing defeats on the battlefield, including the loss of a key city in Donetsk and the most recent setbacks in the Kherson region.

Vladimir Putin has sent a fleet of bombers to a military base housing a large supply of nuclear weapons, sparking fears of World War 3. The Russian President has upped the stakes in his war in Ukraine, after illegally annexing four new provinces. During a carefully choreographed ceremony in Moscow, Putin announced on Friday that the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia would now be formally considered part of Russia.
