MOSCOW. Feb 23 (Interfax-AVN) - After 2012-2015, the U.S. will be able to annihilate Russian strategic nuclear forces by a non-nuclear preemptive strike, said Konstantin Sivkov, the first vice president of the Russian Academy of Geopolitical Problems.
"I declare that the likelihood of a military threat is great as never before now," Sivkov told Interfax on Saturday.
Western military experts have recently started to talk about the possibility of attacking Russia and annexing its territory, Sivkov said. "Russia is supposed to be dismembered into three parts, with the Western part going to the European Union, the central part and Siberia to the U.S., and the eastern to China. This is a rough scenario," he said.

The only territory we got from Russia was back in the 19th when Russia sold us Alaska.
Amazing what passes as news these days. It took the Russians no time at all to covet that 15 minutes of fame. Say something outrageous about the West and get into the Government Controlled news report.
I hope he is right and they are that weak. I don't speak Russian and I hate Vodka. Give me some Kentucky Bourbon any day. Although a little Vodka in a morning Bloody Mary is not bad.
Putin is having his cronies really lay it on deep lately. I'm looking for my chest waders just in case. If this is the old Russiaspeak, he meant to say we now think we can destroy the US so lets bait them into doing something stupid to impress the neighbors; oh, about 2012 or so.
Its Russia's leaders I don't trust and doubt anyone with any sense trusts them either.
