NATO shows muscle at Russian borders
Kiev, Ukraine: Giving a message to the world that Russia will move to Baltic states after backing rebels in Ukraine, NATO forces showed their muscles just 250 meter away from Russian border when US and British army held parade along with Estonian city of Narva bordering Russia.
Diplomatic circles in Kiev believe that NATO parade at easternmost part of Estonia was a clear signal to Russia that “they are not far away” from Russian territories.
