  • Putin seeks to gain advantage while US is side-tracked by Nov 8 election 
  • Russian battleships have been travelling through the Mediterranean
  • Tensions between Russia and the West have escalated due to bombings
  • Intelligence sources warned of ‘significant humanitarian consequences’ 
  • Syrian rebels opened a new front in Aleppo as fighting spread yesterday
