That the radar is needed against a ‘severe’ Russian threat is British-government-generated fake news. Russia’s navy and air force are far weaker than those of the Soviet Union. Further, Russia lacks any transcendent ideology such as Communism that rallied British communists to the Soviet Union’s side.
Britain’s defence minister Gavin Williamson said a new radar off Scotland’s Shetland Islands would help tackle the “severe and real” threat from Moscow.
In a return to the Cold War days when Shetland had hosted an early warning radar, the new Royal Air Force facility is being built to track unidentified military or civilian aircraft.
“We will always protect our skies from Russian aggression,” Williamson said Friday, describing the radar as vital to British defences.
