Russia threatens to NUKE Norway in response to allowing US Marines to deploy in the country

Norway has been warned by a senior Russian politician that it could now be a nuclear target after it allowed for the deployment of 330 US Marines.

Frants Klintsevich, a deputy chairman of Russia’s defence and security committee, said the deployment of US Marines at Værnes was part of a US build-up and made Norway fair game in the event of a nuclear confrontation.

Mr Klintsevich told Russia’s TV2 channel the Kremlin viewed the 330 Marines in Norway as a direct military threat.
