Russia Picks Nuclear Allies For Imminent War With NATO
Amid reports that a war between Russia and NATO is imminent, Moscow is already building plans as to who will be its allies in a nuclear confrontation against the Alliance. And yes, Russia has so far picked nuclear-powered allies. A coincidence? Unlikely.
In an attempt to team up with even more nuclear-powered countries, Russia is seeking to build military ties with Pakistan, according to Bloomberg. The move also appears to be a response to India, Pakistan’s traditional rival, buying more weapons from the United States. Thus, Moscow has just killed two birds with one stone.
Last week, Moscow and Islamabad signed a historical military cooperation deal. The world community “wants to do business with Pakistan now,” as said by Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s defense minister, after signing the agreement.

During last week’s meeting between Shoigu and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the two sides agreed on further steps to boost the $542 million of bilateral trade between the two nations.
Meanwhile, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said the country is seeking to modernize its armed forces and become capable of producing its own military equipment, stripping itself off reliance on imports from the U.S. and Russia.
In August, ValueWalk reported that there were signs of the emergence on a new superpower axis in the world – a triangle between Russia, China and Pakistan. And it seems that there has been significant progress in forming this kind of superpower axis ever since.
