I put a long answer to that over in another thread, the one on WW3 here https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/threads/possibility-of-wwiii.187260/#post-843572091Could this be Putin prepping for the Ezekiel invasion?

but the short answer is yes but with a big BUT in there.
I think that Russia is learning that she can bully the world as she takes over one after another area (don't forget she took over Syria under Obama, and took the Crimean Peninsula under his watch too). She's threatening the Baltics, and expanding threats to Sweden and Finland as well.
This may be how Russia gains the strength and confidence to attack Israel in future, as she grabs and controls one country after another.
The Ukraine would make an almost straight run down from Moscow via Belarus which is pretty much owned by Russia now. This puts them across from Turkey, on the Black Sea and a threat to the other smaller, north side of Turkey, across the opening to the Mediterranean Sea known as the Dardanelles/Bosphorus aka Gallipoli, and the Marmara Sea/Constantinople. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dardanelles
Nicely lined up in control of Syria on the other side of Turkey, thus keeping Turks in line and all ready to clear their way straight down to Egypt and Africa via Israel. They are already in control of much of Africa by using their mercenary groups, as well as puppet leaders loyal to Moscow. Egypt helped them host a Summit meeting in 2018 or 2019 that consolidated much of Russian control of Africa.
If Russia takes the Ukraine, Turkey will feel threatened, and will need to comply with Russian demands or else. Look at that map and you'll see why Russia will control the Ezek 38 invasion, not any Turkish dictator. The Turks stand to lose the northern section of Turkey and Russia is already on their south in Syria.
