US Pressures Russia to Rethink Nuke Maneuvers, Putin Caves!

With tensions between the United States and Russia at a peak in late 2018, every move made by Putin and his associates has been under heavy scrutiny.

For years the Russian military has been engaged in a routine of constant annoyance of their American counterparts around the world.  Stories of Russian jets buzzing warships, or intercepting American places have become all too common over the course of the fledgling Trump era.  Worse yet, many of these encounters have been entirely reckless and inexcusable, putting a number of brave men and women in harm’s way.

Now, after news broke of Russian nuclear bombers being secretly placed in Venezuela, the United States has engaged in a campaign of pressure to send these units back to the motherland.

And it worked.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Wednesday that Russian forces had agreed to leave the area and return to Russia after President Donald Trump spoke with senior Russian officials.

“We have spoken with representatives of Russia and have been informed that their military aircraft, which landed in Venezuela, will be leaving on Friday and going back to Russia,” Sanders said in a statement Wednesday.

The Kremlin has expanded its support for the Maduro regime, which is currently overseeing a dire economic and humanitarian crisis. Over the past decade, Vladimir Putin has been one of the most reliable backers of Maduro, providing at least $17 billion in loans and credit lines since 2006, as well as arms deals and military intelligence sharing.

Russia remains at the center of the American political scene, however, as Robert Mueller nears the end of his investigation into the purported collusion between the Kremlin and the 2016 Donald Trump campaign.

As of this date, there has been no evidence of such collusion presented, and the turbulent relationship between the two nations serves to bolster this reality.
