Russian President Vladimir Putin has once again added his strategic nuclear bombers to an air base near the Finnish and Norwegian border, recent reports say.
The move comes amid heightened tension over whether Putin plans to launch a nuclear attack on Europe and his ongoing occupation of Ukraine, which has suffered a series of embarrassing setbacks in recent months.
The Russian tyrant has gradually increased the number of strategic bombers at Olenya Air Base, from none on August 12, to four supersonic Tu-160s on August 21, to 11 now.
There are seven Tu-160 strategic bombers and four Tu-95 jets at the facility on the Kola Peninsula, found in Russia’s extreme northwest and in the Arctic Circle. .
Discovery comes from Faktisk.noan independent Norwegian fact-checking website, which obtained the data from US satellite operator Planet.
The above build at the air base follows international concern over another report two weeks ago, when The Jerusalem Post revealed that there was an ‘unusual deployment’ of seven nuclear bombers at the air base.
