US brings forward plan to update its nukes in Europe: Gravity bombs due to arrive next year will be delivered in December as Russia raises nuclear war fears

New American nuclear bombs due to arrive in Europe next year will actually arrive this year amid fears Putin could use one of his own atomic weapons over Ukraine.  

B61-12 air-dropped gravity bombs, an updated version of America’s main nuclear bomb, will be delivered to European allies this December instead of spring 2023, according to a diplomatic cable seen by Politico.
