For Moscow, no matter how cynical it may sound, Korean «hydrogen crisis» broke out just in time. For part of the American establishment, drawn into an unprecedented political and diplomatic confrontation with Russia, Pyongyang’s test of a hydrogen bomb can be like a cold shower, the moment of truth and sobriety, writes columnist of the newspaper «Kommersant» Maxim Yusin.
In such moments, comes the understanding of where the true threat, and where the imaginary, the virtual, artificially bloated, emotionally heated. That is a serious threat to the security of U.S. – Russian hackers and Russia in past elections or inadequate regime with nuclear warheads and Intercontinental missiles? Even if we take Congress almost unanimously voted for the anti-Russian sanctions, the answer to this question is obvious, I think, only for Senator McCain. The rest of the legislators, at least, to think, says this article.
«America was horrified by a comparison of the capabilities of troops of the US and Russia in Europe» is the title of an article in Pro-Kremlin «Russian newspaper», where it is said that the American experts were seriously concerned about the results of the study of rapid reaction forces of the US army in Europe.
The experts came to the conclusion that they are understaffed, insufficiently trained and organized, and therefore will not be able to resist the Russian army in case of conflict.

It is dedicated to the assessment of the combat capability of the 173rd airborne brigade based in Italy and considered a stronghold of PATO.

«Kim Jong UN threatens the world with five Hiroshima» is the title of an article in «Nezavisimaya Gazeta», which refers to the largest nuclear test in history, held on the eve of Pyongyang.
The DPRK claims that it was a hydrogen bomb, which can be mounted on an Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). According to experts, Kim is bluffing – and not only against the United States, but China. Not accidentally, this test was arranged on the eve of the BRICS summit in China.
North Korea thus demonstrating the neglect of North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN against the President of the United States Donald Trump, who promised that «the fire and the fury» of America, if Pyongyang were to threaten it with nuclear missiles.

It is necessary to solve the problems of the region through direct dialogue of all interested parties without preconditions.

The diplomat added that Russia has many options of response to this move, but the main thing is «not to be like low and unworthy behaviour» of the US.
