Russian president Vladimir Putin has been laying the groundwork for World War 3. But there is another country secretly planning to invade its neighbor, and it has sought to purchase a fleet of the most advanced Russian fighter jets. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has secretly requested Vladimir Putin to supply the highly-advanced Sukhoi Su-35 jets to North Korea.

North Korea To Buy Russia's Su-35 To Invade South In A Lightning Assault

U.S. has to protect the South

A senior South Korean military official told JoongAng Ilbo that Pyongyang had sent Choe Ryong-hae for a secret meeting with Putin to buy an unknown number of Su-35 jets. Choe Ryong-hae is the right-hand man to Kin Jong-un. Officials said that the advanced jets will allow North Korea to act on its plan to “invade South Korea in a lightning assault,” reports The Inquisitr. Kim’s plan to conquer South Korea was recently revealed by a top North Korea defector.

Sukhoi Su-35 is known to NATO as the “Super Flanker.” it has undergone multiple upgrades since the 1980s, and is considered one of the most powerful fighter jets in the world. If Kim Jong-un attacks South Korea, it could trigger World War 3. The United States will have to jump in to defend the South because it has a security pact with Seoul. Kim Jong-un’s father and former North Korean ruler Kim Jong-il had attempted to acquire the Russian jets in 2011.

Intelligence officials have learned that North Korea approved a new military directive in August 2012. The new war plan will allow Kim to invade the South and conquer it in less than a week. For this, North Korea is planning to use advanced weaponry, including nuclear weapons. Over the past few years, North Korea has been boosting the ability to attack the South and United States.

World War 3 already underway?

According to Bloomberg, Kim Jong-un has set-up posts along the South Korean border to more quickly invade its neighbor. According to South Korea’s Defense Ministry, the North was also aggressively expanding its mechanized forces and artillery. The North Korean regime has set up “infiltration facilities” along the border with South Korea. If not Putin, Kim Jong-un could be responsible for World War 3 if it breaks out.

North Korea has also probably developed ballistic missiles with a striking range of 7,458 miles. It significantly increases the threat to South Korea and the U.S. A few months ago, Pope Francis said that World War 3 was already underway.
