Russian president Vladimir Putin is sending his country’s largest warship to Syria in an attempt to finally destroy the death cult ISIS, reports Daily Star.
The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier has been dispatched to Syria carrying 30 jet fighters and attack helicopters. Putin made the decision to dispatch the warship soon after the latest ISIS attacks in Bangladesh and Iraq.
ISIS fighters murdered 2o hostages in a restaurant in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. The death cult murdered 125 shoppers in Baghdad, Iraq, using a car bomb.
“VLADIMIR Putin is aiming to finally rid the world of ISIS as he prepares to deploy Russia’s mightiest navy ship to smash the sick cult.”
“VLADIMIR Putin is sending a warship packed with fighter jets to Syria in a bid to wipe out the Islamic State for good.”
Fifteen Sukhoi Su-33 fighters and 15 MiG-29 warplanes will be transported to the region via Admiral Kuznetsov, which will also carry 30 attack helicopters. The newly dispatched forces will liaise with land-based Russian forces already in the Syrian region.
ISIS is thought to be “on the brink of collapse.” It is hoped that Putin’s latest move will speed up the sounding of a final death knell for the death cult.
“Airstrikes from coalition forces – including the UK and the US – have already left ISIS on the brink of collapse, and it is hoped Russia’s latest attempt will succeed at destroying what’s left of the caliphate.”
The Sun reports that key ISIS figures are becoming “increasingly paranoid.” The terrorists have reportedly been “dipping their own men in acid” in an attempt to eradicate spies.
“ISIS is becoming increasingly paranoid as their forces are slowly depleted, and have reportedly resorted to dipping their own men in acid in a desperate bid to eradicate spies.”
ISIS is thought to be cash-starved and desperate to raise funds. It has been reported that ISIS has “stolen blood and sold sex slaves on Facebook to make ends meet.”
The Sun reported yesterday that ISIS forces are sneaking into Europe disguised as refugees. The head of German intelligence, Hans George Massen, fears that another Istanbul-style terror attack could be imminent.
“German spymaster Hans Georg Massen, head of the country’s intelligence agency, has confirmed 17 Islamic state jihadis have snuck their way into the continent using the strategy.”
Last week, ISIS forces carried out an attack on an airport in Istanbul. Suicide bombers wielding AK-47 firearms killed 44 people. The three suicide bombers gunned down passengers before blowing themselves up.
Zero Hedge reports that the Chechen man who masterminded the attacks was granted refugee status in Austria. He was thereby able to avoid extradition to Russia, where he was wanted on other terror charges.
“[T]he mastermind behind the deadly Istanbul airport terrorist attack [had] previously received refugee status in Austria, which helped him to repeatedly avoid extradition to Russia on terror charges.”
Putin has accused the Turkish government of supporting terrorists, specifically the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda.
The Russian leader threatened that if Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan does not stop supporting terrorism he “will restore Constantinople [Istanbul] to Christendom,” reports AWD.
“Should Turkey not stop supporting al-Qaeda’s Syria branch, I am indeed eager to end the job the late Tsar Nicholas II left unfinished. During the World War I, he sought to restore Constantinople (Istanbul) to Christendom and protect Russian maritime security by liberating Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits but fate prevented him.”
Putin also spoke about uprisings in Ukraine, calling the uprisings “neo-fascist” and comparing them to a “gangrene” that will cover Europe if it is not quelled.
“[R]ising neo-Fascism in Ukraine is like the infectious Gangrene which can spread across the European continent, and we, the people of the Russian Federation and descendents of the Soviet Union, we are determined to stop this plague.”
Putin has been accused of attempting to prolong the crisis in Ukraine, which began with the 2014 Orange Revolution, but Putin has denied the charge, reports Sputnik News.
Putin expressed his view that nobody should be held responsible for the prolonging of the Ukrainian crisis, least of all Russia. Putin called the situation on the European continent “unhealthy” and spoke about what he feels is the source of the problem.
Putin said that the expansion of NATO to the East is to blame for current problems.
“We find unacceptable the protraction of Ukrainian crisis, as well as accusing anyone of it, but first of all Russia. It will result in worsening of the already unhealthy situation in the European continent. It will aggravate the consequences of the big mistake, which has been made in its time, I mean the choice in favor of NATO expansion to the east instead of construction of an architecture of equal and indivisible security from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean with Russia’s participation.”
NATO is currently helping to protect the airspace and security of states like Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. A key initiative for this is the Baltic Air Policing mission.
Romania and Poland also enjoy protection under NATO. NATO has deployed jets from as far away as Canada as part of an effort “to reassure allies in Central and Eastern Europe,” according to the NATO website.
“Canadian jets left Canada on Tuesday (29 April 2014) for deployment to Romania as part of the NATO efforts to reassure Allies in Central and Eastern Europe.”
Putin stated this year that he feels NATO expansion to the East is a “big mistake.” Putin stated that he would like to construct an alternative architecture in which Russia has some responsibility for the protection of countries like Poland and Latvia.
Relations between Russia and many of the states of Eastern Europe are marked by mistrust and deep historic wounds, raising questions about whether such an arrangement would be deemed acceptable.
