H/t reader squodgy:
“Again, after studying the comparisons between the ‘golden goose, corrupt military industrial complex’ of the USA and the Russian Federation budgetary controlled Ministry of Defence, and the efficiency within the required parameters with which new equipment is produced from conception to field trials, it is obvious the Russian principle is indeed defence and based on National pride, in contrast to the offense based warmongering, neocon bankster led USA.
Shame the mainstream media will twist Putin’s defensive directive into an offensive one, but they will.”
I found that “Superstation95” is making up some of its news.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has declared a mobilization of reservists!
The Russian government, including all its Ministries, even Russia’s National bank, are now also taking part in sudden “wartime test.”
Reservists in the Southern, Central and Western Military Districts are being called up, and trucks from the civilian sector are being transferred into military service as per the mobilization plans. In addition, workers in militarily vital industries in southern Russia are being conscripted into the Ministry of Defense – they can no longer quit or transfer without military approval for the duration of the alert.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense
“There will also be carried out conscription of citizens from the reserve supply of automotive technology and the formation of military units of territorial defense in the Southern, Central Military District and the Northern Fleet.
Field offices of Bank of Russia for the first time will take the financial security troops apart from the permanent dislocation points. In addition, a number of enterprises of the military-industrial complex in southern Russia will test the willingness to carry out tasks for the supply and repair of weapons, military and special equipment.”
To understand the magnitude of what’s taking place, consider that 3 military districts each with ~ 50 administrative units (oblasts+republics). Only Stavropol has called-up 4600 reservists. If the average reserve call-up elsewhere is only half (average 2000) that makes this call-up of Russian Reserve Troops about 100, 000 !!!
Stavropol is home to a BKhiRVT. That’s a mobilization brigade, all the vehicles and weapons but no troops. They have now manned it with 4600 reservists, adding another maneuver brigade to the 49th Combined Arms Army. There are accounts of multiple BKhiRVTs in several Military Districts being manned.
This call-up of Reserves is almost unprecedented. They’ve never called up the reserves. Not for Crimea, or Georgia, or even even Chechnya.
In scale, this is closer to the mobilization for the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
Throughout history, there have been three reliable criteria needing to be fulfilled before the world understands that Russia is going to war:
1) Ground Forces: mobilized
2) VDV: mobilized
3) Reservists: being mobilized
The Russian Airborne Troops or VDV (from “Vozdushno-desantnye voyska Rossii”, Russian: Воздушно-десантные войска России, ВДВ; Air-landing Forces) is a military branch of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. They are an elite force, on par with the Strategic Rocket Forces and the Aerospace Defence Forces. First formed before World War II, the force undertook two significant airborne operations and a number of smaller jumps during the war and for many years after 1945 was the largest airborne force in the world. The force was split after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, losing divisions to Belarus and Ukraine, and has been reduced in size.
In addition to all the manpower being called-up and deployed, Russia’s Integrated air defense (short and long range systems + interceptors) also redeployed for the readiness in the south-west . . . near Turkey.
We have also just learned that Airborne Early Warning and Control (AWAC) aircraft are involved in the events of this sudden readiness test.
According to “Baltics Watch” the Russian Air Force (RuAF) strategic high-frequency (HF) voice net has now gone active.
One analyst in the Pentagon contacted by SuperStation95 put it this way: “Moscow’s doing its biggest Military Exercise since right before the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia. It’s either 1 helluva demonstration of power, or…”
Editor’s Comment: The complete incompetence of the Obama Administration in their mis-handling of foreign affairs is going to get a lot of us killed. Pray that things hold-off until after the Election. With a President Trump, honor will be restored to the US government and our government won’t be causing all this trouble around the world causing people to hate us.

Hillary Clinton would certainly be the worst President ever, but Trump is also an elite puppet just like her and both are serving the same masters.
