Rav Shternbuch: Russian-Turkish Spat is Geula-Related
There is audio of Rav Moshe Shternbuch Shlit"a's message over at Kikar, Kooker, Behadrei and Sod1820.
He mentioned the famous statement of the Gr"a of the Russian ships passing the Bosporus and capturing Istanbul will be a time for us to put on our Shabbat clothes.
He said that Edrogan is "a meshugener" for starting up with Russia and countries don't really want to fight each other, but HKB"H is causing them to do so as this is what will bring about the Geula as we know from Haza"l that a siman for the Geula is countries provoking each other.
He said that even though the Russians have not yet captured Istanbul, the mere fact that they are provoking each other is a sign that we are close to Mashiah.
Kooker adds the idea that Russia inherited the Kelipa of "Dubiel" from Persia and they are mostly Greek Orthodox Xtians - so they have Paras, Yavan, and Edom all mixed into one.
