"Russian President Vladimir Putin is warning that his forces could target NATO sites if his country feels threatened. But it's not so much the warning that's important; it's the timing. 'We are forced to take countermeasures -- that is, to aim our missile systems at those facilities which we think pose a threat to us,' Putin said in an interview with American filmmaker Oliver Stone for a documentary broadcast Monday. 'The situation is heating up.' Putin's harsh words for the Western alliance were broadcast on Russian television as ­President-elect Donald Trump, who has been critical of NATO, pulls together a team and calls for closer ties with the Kremlin."
