Russia Unveils New Arctic Military Base Complete With Nuclear-Ready Warplanes and Is Looking for Oil

(Before It's News)

Russia has unveiled a new Arctic military base capable of housing 150 troops as well as nuclear-ready warplanes.

“Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 39:5,6 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: There is an estimated 24 trillion dollars worth of crude oil sitting under the frozen arctic tundra, and Russia aims to take control of it to finance their bid to once again become a global superpower. The military outpost they have established there clearly shows they are willing to fight off anyone and everyone who might think about grabbing that oil for themselves. Isn’t it fascinating watching Putin and Russia morphing into the Gog and Magog as the Bible long ago prophesied would happen in the last days? Getting access to all or even some of $24,000,000,000,000 would make Russia THE world power. 

The triangular military complex, painted in the red, white and blue of the Russia’s tricolor flag, has been built in remote Alexandra Land in the Franz Josef Archipelago. While parts of the base remain top secret, military chiefs have offered a glimpse at the interior of the building.

It comes as part of Russia’s largest Arctic military push since the fall of the Soviet Union and as Moscow moves to lay claim to the region’s huge oil and gas reserves – believe to be worth as much as £23trillion.

The five-story complex, named Nagursky by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, is on the extreme north of Russia’s Arctic frontier.

It will hold 150 troops able to survive autonomously in subzero conditions for 18 months. Officials have said they may deploy military jets there. MiG-31 fighters, designed to shoot down long-range bombers, or the SU-34, a frontline bomber are seen as options, it has been reported.

According to the Moscow Times, it also comes complete with a cinema, table tennis and billiards rooms while a military art studio is also planned.

Earlier this year it was reported that Moscow is starting to build nuclear icebreakers as it vies for dominance in the polar region with traditional rivals Canada, the United States, and Norway as well as newcomer China.

Russia Defense Report: Battle for Arctic

Interviews with officials and military analysts and reviews of government documents showed Russia’s build-up is the biggest since the 1991 Soviet fall and will, in some areas, give Moscow more military capabilities than the Soviet Union once had.

The expansion has far-reaching financial and geopolitical ramifications. The Arctic is estimated to hold more hydrocarbon reserves than Saudi Arabia – and Moscow is putting down a serious military marker.

Under President Vladimir Putin, Moscow is rushing to re-open abandoned Soviet military, air and radar bases on remote Arctic islands and to build new ones, as it pushes ahead with a claim to almost half a million square miles of the Arctic.

It regularly releases pictures of its troops training in white fatigues, wielding assault rifles as they zip along on sleighs pulled by reindeer.

The Arctic, the U.S. Geological Survey estimates, holds oil and gas reserves equivalent to 412 billion barrels of oil, about 22 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas. source

    Except Russia is not the Gog or Magog of Ezekiel 38 and 39.

    The areas of the bible referenced is Turkey.

    Wow a base for 150 men, we is all going to die like every day according to the religious nutters on this site

    Bible bashing freaks in the USA all seem to be suicidal and should be put on a watch list by insurance companies because they are a bad risk
