Russian Federation dismisses new 'invincible' weapons as new arms race

Russian Federation dismisses new 'invincible' weapons as new arms race”

"You listen to us now".

Steven Pifer, a former State Department Foreign Service officer who worked with Russia and Ukraine, tweeted that though Putin "discussed some worrisome new weapons", his speech was "first and foremost" aimed at the Russian public in anticipation of the upcoming election.

To drive home his point, Putin spoke as a video showed multiple nuclear warheads streaking through space before showering down on what appears to be the outline of the state of Florida.

Numerous entries Friday reflected the wry dark humor Russians are known for.

"Now they need to take account of a new reality and understand that everything I have said today is not a bluff", said Putin, claiming that the nuclear-powered cruise missile was tested a year ago and boosts not only a "practically unlimited range" but also advanced maneuverability and speed.

"We need to ensure that our nuclear stockpile stays a credible nuclear deterrent". "U.S. defense capabilities are, and will, remain second to none", she told reporters.

She explained that, in relation to Russia, NATO has a dual approach that provides for defense, containment and dialogue.

In a "state-of-the-nation" speech on Thursday, ahead of Russian elections, President Putin announced to the world that Russia possesses an arsenal of new nuclear weapons that can't be intercepted.

He said the USA has underestimated Russia's ability to mount a response, aiming for a "unilateral military advantage that could eventually allow it to dictate its terms in other areas". "Russia has such weapons already", he said.

The spokesman said Russia's nuclear doctrine explicitly outlines circumstances that permit the use of such weapons - including a nuclear attack on Russia or an attack by other weapons that threaten Russian security.

He told Kelly: "If you don't have a legal degree I can explain to you". "You have failed to contain Russian Federation".

McMaster Could Leave White House by End of Month
McMaster replaced former national security adviser Michael Flynn amid controversy surrounding his meeting with a Russian diplomat. He was on the National Security Council from 2001 to 2003 during the administration of former President George W.

Asked if Putin is bluffing, Baron said there was more to be concerned about.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump understands the threats facing the United States and our allies.

One particular sore point for Moscow is NATO's US -built missile defence umbrella across Spain, Poland and Romania, which the alliance says is created to shoot down Iranian rockets.

A hypersonic glide vehicle: Putin said Russian Federation had developed a missile system with a weapon capable of flying "like a meteorite" at several times the speed of sound.

Defense analyst John Noonan tweeted, "Putin on new nuclear missile is classic Russian bluster".

A computer video showed the drone being launched by a submarine, cruising over the seabed, hitting an aircraft carrier and also exploding near the shore. "So if he gets this new technology and rolls it out, these are longer range missiles and they're able to steer themselves in flight, which makes them not just ballistic, but cruise missiles".

The Defence Security Cooperation Agency said Ukraine has asked President Donald Trump's United States administration for permission to buy 210 missiles and 37 launchers at a cost of around US$47 million.

Putin claimed to Kelly that the undetectable missile has been tested and "the test was excellent". He said it carries more nuclear warheads than its Soviet-era predecessor, known in the West as Satan.

Yet, it is increasingly clear that U.S. -Russia relations are entering into a new cooling period.

"We do not want a new Cold War or a new arms race", Lungescu said.
