The US AEGIS system in Romania is ready to attack Russia with cruise missiles. According to information from military analysts, the USA is continuing to expand its missile base in Romania. The Mk 41 vertical launch facility there is designed to attack land targets with Tomahawk cruise missiles. Modernising the Deveselu site poses a real threat to Russia that should not go unanswered, and Moscow has a wide range of possible countermeasures at its disposal. The USA is probably planning to station the BGM-109 Tomahawk land-based US cruise missiles there, which had previously been banned by the INF Treaty.
The protests against the construction of an Orthodox church in Yekaterinburg follow the same pattern as the Maidan movement in Ukraine. What is described as “popular protests” and the “voice of the people,” is nothing but the voice of the big business. The protests have nothing to do with the protection of ecology and the protection of democratic freedoms in Russia: pure commerce, nothing personal.
