According to DDIS, Russia sent military jets equipped with live missiles to the island in June, at the same time 9,000 dignitaries were gathered for a political festival.“DDIS did not release concrete details about the simulated attack but characterised it as the largest Russian military exercise over the Baltic Sea since 1991 and “of a more offensive character than observed in recent years.“DDI’s Risk Assessment 2014, which can be read in its entirety using the link below, strongly focuses on Russia and the Ukraine crisis, predicting that “over the next few years, the situation in eastern Ukraine will highly likely turn into a new frozen European conflict, and the Ukraine crisis will continue to strain relations between Russia and the West.” Russia has been preparing its military and testing NATO defenses in recent weeks.
Russia continues to stoke fears of World War 3 after a sharp increase in military activity in the North Atlantic and new revelations that the nation simulated an attack on Denmark this summer.
The simulated attack took place on the island of Bornholm this summer, the Danish Defense Intelligence Service revealed this week.
Two armed police officers - carrying what appeared to be rifles - moved cautiously towards the entrance, weapons pointing out in front of them.
The sound of gunfire could be heard ringing out through the foodcourt as the volunteers screamed for help.
Moments later a masked gunman appeared near at the foot of the steps at the entrance to The Orient, firing a number of shots.
In that time frame, Russia also test-launched a ballistic missile in the Barents Sea, north of Sweden. “That could certainly be the case,” retired Air Force Lt. David Deptula, the service’s influential former intelligence chief, told the .Moments, later an explosion rocked the food hall and volunteers - wearing ear defenders and safety glasses - dropped to the floor.Earlier, the volunteers had gone through a safety briefing and had been reassured that no live rounds would be used.After observing the initial ‘attack’, the media were asked move outside to witness the arrival, about five minutes later, of armed police.Many were made up to look as if they had horrific injuries and others screamed out as if in pain.Smoke filled the entrance to the foodcourt and some of the volunteers ran from restaurants, as if they were trying to dash to safety.
