VLADIMIR Putin has unveiled plans to build a huge new military base on Russia's border with Ukraine amid warnings that he intends to lash out at the West to distract attention from his country's ailing economy.
The Russian leader will construct a huge facility for more than 5,000 troops and heavy weaponry just a few miles from where the fiercest fighting has taken place between Moscow-backed separatists and Ukrainian army forces. A crack brigade of troops trained specifically in how to deal with nuclear, chemical and biological attacks will be drafted in from a top secret base in central Russia to man the installation. They will be accompanied by thousands of tanks, armoured vehicles and rockets in the latest evidence that Russia is now on a war footing in eastern Europe.
He is in Syria now and as far as I’m concerned he will never leave there..In my opinion he's there to cause trouble
for the West
You see Putin strikes me as the kind of man who won't go down by himself.. he has hated the West
since the Soviet Union went bankrupt.
He blames the West for the humiliation Russia had to endure in the 20 or so years from the downfall
of Soviet Russia up until the oil started to flow and Putin started rebuilding.
So will he attack the West and if so what form will it take.. I hope he's not stupid enough to launch
a limited nuclear attack on Poland or the UK.

Is this a new base or is he just acknowledging the existence and upgrade of the ad-hock one they created to train and support Russian forces in E. Ukraine?

Do you have any other source for this new base in Russia close to Ukraine's border? I can't find this news on any other mainstream outlet.
And, assuming this was true, how is it a problem if they build a base in THEIR country?
