Serbia equips with 22 SAM systems from China. Russia moves aircraft away from Belarus border with Lithuania. Is NATO getting ready to launch an air war??Mon 3:30 pm Europe/London, 11 Apr 2022
Hearing these two pieces of news in combination suggests NATO is moving its airpower into position to strike, and Russia has taken note. The USA has a carrier group off Kosovo which, along with land based forces, could decimate Serbia, which up until now had little in the way of air or missile defence. Likewise Russia’s planes based in Belarus are too close to potential aggression coming from the Baltic States or Sweden. The fact that these two moves occur in combination this weekend suggests that NATO is close to making moves, and Russia is able to find out this information.
