World War 3 is coming according to Ukraine's first president, Leonid Kravchuk. He believes Russia could usher in the end of the world as we know it if Vladimir Putin doesn't back down.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Russia's nuclear weapons were actually test fired as a show of force. An unarmed ICBM was sent streaking toward a target site just as Putin blamed President Obama and America for causing the entire situation by interfering in Ukraine. The Russian Black Sea fleet commander supposedly issued a war ultimatum, and journalists on-site confirmed they heard it with their own ears.
When former Ukrainian president Kravchuk spoke during a parliament session in Kiev he was fairly blunt that he was willing to take up arms if Russia pushed his country into World War 3:
"They have gone beyond their base and occupied Crimea – it is conquered territory. Russia violated the Budapest Memorandum. Ukraine has every reason to go to international arbitration. I call on the Russian authorities to stop. Between our peoples should not be war. Does Russia not understand that this is the beginning of World War 3?"Making a passing insult against Putin, Kravchuk also said the Russian people were acting at the "behest of some schizophrenic." He said that the presidents of governments come and go, and asked Russia to "think about the relationship of our peoples, rather than protecting power."
Oddly enough, one of the predictions for 2014 related to World War 3 included Russian astrologers talking about the Sochi Olympics. Back in 2011, a group claimed WW3 would be heralded in by the end of the games:
"The participants of the meeting also unveiled the date for the beginning of Third World War. The new war is said to begin in March of 2014, during the Olympic Games in Sochi. It is also possible that the war may start five days after the Games end.... He only said that the African revolutions would slowly be moving towards Russia. Massive protests will eventually spark in Central Asia, the astrologist said."Although they didn't say who would start the conflict, they also said, "In the nearest future, one shall expect revolutions in Syria." Spooky... or maybe they just saw the writing on the wall like everyone else and they're not actually successfully predicting the end of the world.
Are you worried about Ukraine and Russia possibly triggering World War 3 or an armed conflict of any scale?
