The U.S. Navy Just Uncovered Something Massive Putin Is Doing That Could Be ‘Devastating’
One of the oft-repeated truisms that many pass around about Russia today is that it is once again on the verge of collapse. But if what the U.S. Nay is reporting about the Russian navy is correct, that “collapse” may not be as imminent as so many want to believe.
Just as an example of some of the “collapse” stories about Russia, in April Business Insider reported that the Russian banking sector is “about to implode.” Then in August, CNBC insisted that the Russian economy is on the verge of collapse. That was preceded by a report in The Week blaring that the Russian navy is collapsing.
It’s the latter report that the U.S. Navy is seeking to discourage policy makers from believing. After decades of neglect, Putin is now set to pour billions of rubles into revitalizing the great bear’s maritime military.
According to an extensive new U.S. Navy study reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the Russian navy is initiating a huge modernization plan and will be adding advanced submarines with upgraded nuclear-armed cruise missiles to its fleet. The results, the Free Beacon’s Bill Gertz writes, could be “devastating.”
