The war drums are playing.

There is like never before been so much close to nuclear war between Russia and USA.

Syria is the main target the apple for destruction of the world as we know it. 

Iskander M system, Sept 2016

Russia has deployed nuclear-capable Iskander missiles in its western-most region, Kaliningrad, which borders on Nato members Poland and Lithuania.

Russia's defence ministry said the new deployment was part of military exercises and had happened before.

The US and Nato have seen disagreements with Russia intensify in recent times, particularly over Syria and Ukraine.

Kaliningrad is a Russian enclave sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania.

Are Russia's military advances a problem for Nato?
