Putin's former aid: Russia has been preparing for global war since 2003

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War

Is Russia the Land of Magog and will the Russian President be the leader Gog, (Ezekiel 38)?  That all remains to be seen, but certainly Russia and her President, Vladimir Putin, are string up a lot of war rumors of late.

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Mark 13:7 NIV

Putin's former aid: Russia has been preparing for global war since 2003
People in the Baltic states cannot feel secure. Russian President Vladimir Putin has a plan he has been working on for over a decade. So says former adviser to President Putin, Andrey Illarionov.
According to Illarionov, Russia has been preparing for a major war at least since 2003 and for a confrontation with Ukraine and capture of Crimea, since 2004, when the 'Orange Revolution' started in Kiev. Another contingency plan was drafted for 2010, in case Yulia Tymoshenko had won presidential election and not Moscow-backed Viktor Yanukovych. One more potential date for a war was chosen in 2015, according to Illarionov, when Ukraine would hold a presidential election. However, the Maidan happened sooner. Illarionov refers to an article that the Ruskyi Zhurnal (Russian Journal) published in 2008, which detailed a plan for how to attack and occupy Crimea, then eastern Ukraine, central Ukraine and finally reach Kiev. "As we see, not only were they preparing, they were publishing it," he says. 

Could Putin's troops 'be in Warsaw in two days'?
“If I wanted, in two days I could have Russian troops not only in Kiev, but also in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Warsaw, and Bucharest”, Russian leader Vladimir Putin said, according to a report in Germany’s Suddeutsche Zeitung on 18 September. He reportedly said it to Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko, who then told EU officials. Other media asked Brussels, Kiev, and Moscow if Putin really made the threat, but they declined to confirm or deny. EUobserver asked three Russian analysts if Putin could really do it. The short answer is No.

For the first time, Russia has more deployed nuclear warheads than U.S.
For the first time, Russia, which is in the midst of a major strategic nuclear modernization, has more deployed nuclear warheads than the United States, according to the latest numbers released by the State Department. Russia now has 1,643 warheads deployed on intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and heavy bombers. The United States has 1,642, said the fact sheet released Wednesday.
