Manchin warns of largest Russian presence in Arctic since Cold War

June 8, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia issued a stark warning about the geopolitical threat of Russia’s presence in the Arctic, saying Moscow’s military and economic activity in the region is at the highest level since the Cold War.

“It’s unbelievable the commitment they’ve made,” Manchin said on “Face the Nation” Sunday. “We’ve seen more activity of aircraft flying in those spaces. We’ve seen submarine activity from Russia, more so than we have during the Cold War.”

Despite not seeing any evidence of the Kremlin conducting low-yield nuclear tests in the Arctic — as the Trump administration has suggested — during a recent visit to the region with other lawmakers, the West Virginia Democrat said Russia is undoubtedly expanding its military role in its northernmost territory, home to the largest communities inside the Arctic Circle in the world.

Last week, the director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency indicated in a speech that Moscow was likely staging low-yield nuclear testing at sites in Novaya Zemlya, an island chain in the Arctic Ocean. The claim by one of the highest-ranking intelligence officials in the country represented the first time the U.S. formally — and publicly — accused the Russian government of breaching the parameters set forth by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

  1. I’m not looking at 2020 election because I believe President Trump is going to win four more years.

    In 2024 A Democrat candidate is going to win the presidential election and he/she is going to be a homosexual person.

    You can see that today how China, Iran, N. Korea are hoping the 2020 election will be won by a democrat so they can walk all over him or her on policies, since our presidents what to look presidential and not smart.

    Politicians are weak they talk from both side of their mouth and say nothing meaningful.

    I also believe Russia will play a greater part toward opposing us (U.S.) in 2024 and beyond.

    Let me know what you think on this matter.

    May God bless you and the ministry always.

    When I worked on a processing ship in 2015, the Russians had sub’s in the Berring Sea. What ever they are doing goes back at least that far.
