Russia flies nuclear-capable bombers over Belarus as migrant crisis escalates
The EU accuses Minsk of drawing in migrants from the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa and then pushing them to cross into Poland to try to sow violent chaos on the bloc's eastern flank.

Russia took the rare step of dispatching two nuclear-capable strategic bombers to patrol Belarusian airspace on Wednesday in a show of support to close ally Belarus at a time when it is locked in a migrant standoff with the European Union. Moscow's decision to up the ante came as the 27-nation bloc considered sanctions on Wednesday to punish Minsk for what it calls an artificially created crisis, something Belarus denies.

Migrants trapped in Belarus made multiple attempts to force their way into Poland overnight, Warsaw said on Wednesday, announcing that it had reinforced the border with extra guards. United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called on states to deescalate and resolve the "intolerable" crisis. "These hundreds of men, women and children must not be forced to spend another night in freezing weather without adequate shelter, food, water and medical care," she said.

The Tupolev Tu-22M commonly called the Backfire Bomber by NATO - been around since the 1960s - all bombers are nuclear capable no matter what country or who makes it - does not mean they are actually carrying them. The press like to use big scary words like "Nuclear-capable" to arouse the unknowing public - most modern fighter jets are "Nuclear-capable" as well for that matter - but again that does not mean they are actually carrying one

Yep agree, just like how we (Australia) got nuclear subs, it doesn't mean that it is already equipped with Nuclear weapons , it's just powered by nuclear energy but can also be equipped with nuclear weapons

I feel for Poland, they are not on board with the EU's agenda to flood us with Islamic migrants (not sure why the EU is speaking out against this other than it is an enemy behind it rather than themselves). They are under attack right now. :pray that they will stand firm and that the people of Poland will give their lives to Christ.

If the United Nations feel that strongly then they should be taking care of the migrants instead of trying to force Poland or any other country to feed, clothe, house, and educate these invaders. It will never stop as long as they get freebies from host nations.
