Vladimir Putin moved more warships and fighter jets to bolster his already massive army in the baltics.

The Russian military also announced the fleet will have additional guided missile craft, fighters and support vessels by the end of the year.

NATO forces are on red alert as members are anxious over planned Russian war games in September following missile deployment in the region.

Defence analyst Alexander Khrolenko told the Sputnik news agency NATO can “only dream” of dominating the Baltic.

“The swift military buildup of the Baltic Fleet is a natural response on Russia’s part to NATO’s aggressive ambitions in the region, increased war-gaming, Baltic air policing, anti-Russian sentiments and spy fever,” he said.

He added that NATO war games “simulate a hybrid war with Russia, of course”.

Last week Pentagon chief Jim Matti hit back at Russian aggression saying the United States and NATO are prepared to deploy any capabilities necessary to help improve air defence systems in the Baltic region.

Russia is preparing for massive military exercises in its western military region in September, and has deployed a missile system in neighbouring Kaliningrad.

“Any buildup of Russian combat power in an area where they know, and we all know, they are not threatened by anything that we are doing is simply destabilising.”

Pro-Moscow analyst Khrolenko said Russia’s Baltic Fleet currently consists of three diesel submarines, a destroyer, six patrol ships, six fast attack guided missile craft, six anti-submarine warfare corvettes, 12 missile boats, six amphibious assault ships, as well as six coastal minesweepers and nine inshore minesweepers.

    The last time the military has done this (massing troops), The Gulf War followed a few days later.
    Saddam Hussein was the enemy.

    We are almost there now folks… a few more days to go to WW3…!!!!
    And I am still pondering; Who is the enemy this time?
