According to The Sun, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his army and air force to prepare for “a time of war.”
The order comes after massive NATO operations have been taking place in Europe.
The Sun reports Russia’s decision is most likely the result of NATO and its recent high activity in the region.
Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said in a statement:
“As part of a snap combat readiness check of the Aerospace Force, units of the Aerospace Force’s anti-aircraft missile and radio-technical troops have arrived at the designated areas. Upon their arrival at the new positions, the crews of radar stations, S-300 and S-400 antiaircraft missile systems carried out maintenance work on their military hardware and went on combat alert. As the combat crews of radar stations and antiaircraft missile systems detect unidentified aerial targets, air defense patrol fighter jets will be scrambled to classify them or notionally destroy them.”
