Russia has warned the world of an imminent World War III. Reacting to the military strikes against Syria by allies, United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and France on Saturday night, Russian media announced that the consequences of this would not be light. Warning of an imminent World War, Russia urged people to be prepared to face the physical consequences of the war. It suggested that they should keep iodine packets ready so as not to be affected by radiation. Also, it urged them to save food and water. Russian defence forces said that undercurrents of war had always prevailed.
