West and Russia currently at loggerheads over Syria, Ukraine and Nato drills in the Baltic
VLADIMIR Putin is preparing for war with the West, security experts fear.
The Russian president has invested heavily in decking out top-secret facilities around Moscow in the event of war.
He has even ordered the building of a 400-square mile facility in the remote wastes of the Ural mountains from where any future conflict could be directed.
Satellite images reveal the location of the huge centre near Mount Yamantau.
And the nuclear power is in the process of building the world’s most powerful nuke – the Satan-2.
The deadly warhead is believed to be big enough to destroy an area the size of France.
Russia already holds the world’s biggest arsenal of nuclear weapons – around 7,300 warheads.
Some of those have been placed at the very extreme of its eastern coast – just 5o miles from US territory in Alaska.
The Doomsday Clock – a means of measuring the likelihood of war – puts the current time at 23.57, with all-out war being 00:00.
