Putin moves nuclear bombers to airbase near Finland and Norway borders

Vladimir Putin has again increased his strategic nuclear bombers at an airbase near the Finnish and Norwegian borders. The move comes amid high tension over whether he plans an atomic attack in Europe and his on-going invasion of Ukraine. He has gradually increased the number of strategic bombers at Olenya air base from none on August 12, to four Tu-160s on August 21, to 11 now. There are seven Tu-160 strategic bombers (marked in red) and four Tu-95 aircraft (marked in yellow) at the facility on the Kola Peninsula. The build-up above at the air base follows international concern over another report two weeks ago, when The Jerusalem Post revealed there was an 'unusual deployment' of seven nuclear bombers at the airbase. The Armageddon planes are usually stationed at Engels Air Base, 450 miles south-east of Moscow.
