PICTURES Britain stages largest ever WW3 drill on Russian border amid nuke threats


Almost 4,000 troops from 11 NATO state – including the UK, US and Canada – are practising for World War 3 in Lithuania.

The military drills – dubbed “Iron Sword” – are believed to be preparation for a new NATO super-army, meant to stop Putin invading Eastern Europe.

They are carrying out the WW3 dry run just miles from Russia’s nuclear-capable missiles, in Kaliningrad.

Moscow has branded the move as “aggressive” and vowed to take measures to protect itself.

But Putin responded by sending nuclear-capable S-400 missiles to Kaliningrad – between Lithuania and Poland.

Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “Russia is doing all that is necessary to protect itself amid NATO”s expansion toward its borders.

“The alliance is a truly aggressive bloc, so Russia does what it has to do.

“It has every sovereign right to take necessary measures throughout the territory of the Russian Federation.”
