(AP Photo/Mikhail Metzel, File)Moscow – Russia is facing a heightened risk of being drawn into conflicts at its borders that Replica Watches Online have the potential of turning nuclear, the nations top military officer said Thursday. Gen. Nikolai Makarov, chief of the General Staff of the Russian armed forces, cautioned over NATOs expansion eastward and warned that the risks for Russia to be pulled into local conflicts have risen sharply.Advertisement: Makarov added, according to Russian news agencies, that under certain conditions local and re soguwatches.com gional conflicts may develop into a full-scale war involving nuclear weapons. A steady decline in Russias conventional forces has prompted the Kremlin to rely increasingly on its nuclear deterrent. The nations military doctrine says it may use nuclear weapons to counter a nuclear attack on Russia or an ally, or a large-scale conventional attack that threatens Russias existence. Russia sees NATOs expansion to include former Soviet republics and ex-members of the Soviet bloc in eastern and central Europe as a key threat to Russias security. Makarov specifically referred to NATOs plans to offer membership to Georgia and Ukraine as potentially threatening Russias security. Russia routed Georgian forces in a brief August 2008 war over a separatist province of South Ossetia. Moscow later recognized South Ossettia and another breakaway Georgian province of Abkhazia as independent states and increased its military presence there. Russia also considers missile defense plans as another security challenge. Russia has strongly opposed the U.S.-led missile defense plan, saying it could threaten its nuclear forces and undermine their deterrence potential. Moscow has agreed to consider NATOs proposal last fall to cooperate on the missile shield, but the talks have been deadlocked over how the system should operate. Russia has insisted that the system should be run jointly, which NATO has rejected. Citizens Watches
