Kremlin says Russian Federation not interested in 'arms race'

Победа Нафтогаза над Газпромом эксперт рассказал чем ответит Россия

The weapon is capable of performing sharp maneuvers on its way to targets, making it "absolutely invulnerable for any missile defense system", Putin added.

With these new weapons, Putin also dismissed the threat of a Cold War 2 by calling it a "propaganda".

The animation appeared to show the coastal area including Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater.

While it was unclear which ally Putin had in mind, the US -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said the speech, one of the Russian leader's most bellicose in years, did not help calm tensions that have surged since Russia seized Ukraine's Crimea four years ago. Whether any of the other animated footage Putin unveiled is reused from any other media is not yet clear. US Pentagon's response was to assure people that they are ready for anything and that they should not panic because they are not surprised by Putin's new statements.

Putin stunned the world on Thursday when he used his state of the union speech ahead of the March 18 elections to unveil "invincible" hypersonic weapons and submarines. Nevertheless, election season is always a moment Putin seizes to polish up his image domestically, and faster, better nukes equals a Russian public that feels safer and prouder. "It was nothing new to worry about".

Finally, the RS-28 Sarmat, or Satan II, became the focus of discussion.

Then, in 2016, USA intelligence revealed that Russian Federation had tested the vehicle code-named Kanyon by the Pentagon. Tampa is home to a U.S. military command centre and has always been considered a prime target.

President Vladimir Putin declared Thursday that Russian Federation has developed a range of new nuclear weapons, claiming they can't be intercepted.

"Russia already possesses such weapons", the president said.

Putin used bellicose language as he unveiled the weapons, warning the world to "listen up now", but also insisted the weaponry would only be used in defence of Russian Federation or its allies. Putin tells Kelly that Russia will respond with nuclear weapons under two conditions - if anyone attacks Russia with nuclear weapons, aaaaaand ... if anyone attacks Russia with anything else, too. "There is every reason to believe that for Russian Federation it would also end badly". "But there is the question of when they will be operational, at what cost will they come and how effective they will be just on paper", he said.

Putin said Russian Federation has achieved "significant results" in designing such systems, and added that the military commissioned its first laser weapons past year.

"We for a long time tried to persuade the Americans to not terminate the Treaty, not to destroy the strategic balance [but] no, nobody really wanted to talk with us, nobody listened".

Hypersonic weapons under development by Russian Federation and China - as well as by the United States - can beat regular anti-missile defenses as they are created to switch direction in flight and do not follow a predictable arc like conventional missiles, making them much harder to track and intercept.
