MOSCOW - Russia has staged its biggest military parade, marking 70 years of victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two. Thousands of troops are marched on Red Square in Moscow, & new armour being displayed for the first time. More than 20 heads of states were in Moscow, but many world leaders boycotted the event because of Russia's role in the Ukraine crisis. As the event began , President Vladimir Putin said international co-operation had been put at risk in recent years. In his speech, President Putin paid tribute to the sacrifices of Soviet troops during World War Two. He also thanked " the people of Great Britain, France & the United States for their contribution to victory ”. But he added: " In recent decades the basic principles of international co-operation have been ignored ever more frequently. We see how a military-bloc mentality is gaining momentum. ” The remarks echo previous complaints by Mr Putin about what he says are efforts by the US & its Nato allies to encircle Russia militarily.

With Russia now occupying large parts of the Ukraine & threatening the Baltic States & wider Europe . . . 70 years after its WW2 massacre of the Jew , could Europe also face divine wrath & punishment ?
JEREMIAH 25 v 11-12 - And this whole land shall be a desolation & an astonishment ; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon ' seventy years '. And it shall come to pass, when ' seventy years ' are accomplished , that I will punish the king of Babylon, & that nation, saith the LORD,
