There are fears that Vladimir Putin is preparing for an “imminent large scale” on Ukraine as nuclear capable bombers have been seen “on the tarmac.”
Experts have warned that an “unusually high number of bombers” have been detected at the Russian military air-base, Engels-2.
Almost 24 long range Tu-95 and Tu-160 are being prepared according to satellite images in the city of Saratov which shows there is an “increase in operations.”
Military analyst Arda Mevlutoğlu told the German outlet, SPIEGEL that there has been an increase in tanks and bombers at the Russian air-base which could indicate another new “imminent” attack.

Air raid sirens were issued all over Ukraine on Thursday following warnings that Russia are preparing for “some quite big air attacks.”
Vitaliy Kim, the governor of the Mykolaiv region in southern Ukraine, said: “Last time, the Russians also disguised the strike as a training flight… Let’s see.”
Professor Michael Clarke, the former director-general of RUSI, told Sky News on Tuesday, “It looks as though Russians are preparing some big air attacks.
“There’s a lot of Twitter chat and satellite imagery at air bases… so there may be a lot of air activity.
“The Russians are really digging in for winter and preparing trenches. In Kherson, they’ve got huge defences.”
