Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, the editor of a publication that examines military capabilities broke down Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent speech on expanding his country's reach with nuclear weapons, and then painted a frightening portrait of a new Cold War that could heat up quickly with President Trump in the Oval Office. Putin's remarks seem unlikely to change that equation or divert the Trump Administration from its path toward modernising the full United States nuclear arsenal at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars while also expanding missile defences. Putin's "victory" in the fake election is in no doubt, so he doesn't really need a nuclear argument for Russians.
A frame grab taken from a Russian handout video shows a rocket with a new gliding hypersonic warhead blasting off in Russian territory.
"We think he was playing to the audience", she said, adding that Putin's boasts were irresponsible.
But Russian media outlets are now reporting that the video displayed on the giant screen during Putin's address is from a documentary called "Satan" that was broadcast on Russia's state-run Channel One in 2007.
"President Putin has confirmed what the United States government has known for a long time but that Russian Federation has denied prior to this". Namely, the Satan II nuclear ICBM and other nuclear capable ballistic missile platforms. It's riskier than most other types of nuclear reactors.
Washington accused Moscow of breaching Cold War-era arms treaties, with a State Department spokeswoman saying it was "unfortunate" to have watched a video animation that depicted a nuclear attack on the United States. The Pentagon's 2018 Nuclear Posture Review also said that nuclear weapons could be used for "extreme circumstances", which could include non-nuclear attacks. His pre-election message to the people of Russia and the world was that Russian military forces were invincible and the country was invulnerable.
The Defence Security Cooperation Agency said Ukraine has asked President Donald Trump's USA administration for permission to buy 210 missiles and 37 launchers at a cost of around US$47 million. Give us a document, give us an official request.
Among the weapons Putin said had been successfully tested was a cruise missile with a nuclear-propulsion engine - a weapon that would fly at a low altitude and follow an unpredictable flight path to avoid US missile defense systems.
The regional leader of the province of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, proposed calling the nuclear-powered cruise missile "Palmyra", after the historic heritage site in Syria that was taken back from the Islamic State group under the Russian air cover.
Washington has consistently argued that missile defense systems in Europe aren't aimed at Moscow but designed instead to defend against threats from Iran, North Korea and rogue threats.
"This anti-missile "umbrella" turns out to be a bit "leaky", he said.
Putin has shrugged off those arguments and said Thursday that the USA plans to develop its missile defense system would "eventually devalue the Russian nuclear arsenal if we sit with our arms folded".
One newspaper suggested Putin's weapons' comments generated "hysteria" in the United States, while British tabloids have been "full of headlines about a threatening Russian Federation".
