The Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army has issued a stark warning to Americans, saying that Russia posed a very real threat to the United States, and the Russian army are the only army in the world who could destroy the America.
Mark Milley made the warning during a conference on security, and commented that “Russia’s recent behavior is adversarial to the interests of the United States“, noting that “Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the United States, which makes it an existential threat“.
Recently, top US officials have been pointing out the growth of Russia’s military power.
The commander of US forces in Europe, Ben Hodges, said that Russia was capable of showing resistance even to a technologically superior enemy owing to its air defense system and anti-ship complexes.
Noteworthy, as many as 49 percent of Russians now believe that the Russian Army has become one of the best armies in the world.
In Global Firepower’s world army ranking, Russia is ranked second after the United States. The third place belongs to China.
