Is Russia Getting Ready for a Global War?

Russia is ordering all its officials to fly home any relatives living abroad amid heightened tensions over the prospect of a global war according to a new report.
Politicians and high-ranking figures are said to have received a warning from president Vladimir Putin to bring their loved-ones home to the 'Motherland', according to local media.

It comes after Putin cancelled a planned visit to France amid a furious row over Moscow's role in the Syrian conflict and just days after it emerged the Kremlin had moved nuclear-capable missiles nearer to the Polish border.

"This is all part of the package of measures to prepare elites to some 'big war,'" Stanislav Belkovsky, a Russia analyst, is quoted by the Daily Star as saying.

"If you want a confrontation, you'll get one. But it won't be a confrontation that doesn't harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you'll get one everywhere," said retired Russian Lt. Gen. Evgeny Buzhinsky.

"As [Russian President Vladimir] Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts," Buzhinsky said.

This comes as former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev has warned that the world is at a "dangerous point" due to rising tensions between Russia and the United States, citing a "collapse of mutual trust."


Russian and American leaders have differed over policy in Syria and Ukraine, among other issues. But the rift extends to other Western powers; Putin recently canceled an upcoming trip to Paris and meeting with French President Francois Hollande. Further complicating matters, the Obama administration has accused Moscow of backing hacks meant to disrupt the U.S. election.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Putin steadfastly denied those allegations.

"There's nothing there benefiting Russia," Putin told the Russia Calling conference Wednesday. "The hysteria is simply to distract the American people from the contents of what the hackers have posted."
