Putin: Russia Needs Facts on Meddling

Putin Goes Nuclear

And in a video, these missiles were shown descending on Tampa Bay, the headquarters of the U.S. Central Command.

And in a touch of dark humor, he invited Russians to join a Defense Ministry contest to name some of the weapons.

"We categorically reject any accusations that Russian Federation is violating any provisions and articles of worldwide law on disarmament and arms control", Peskov said.

"The chancellor and the president voiced concern about Russian president Putin's latest remarks on arms development and its negative impact on global arms control efforts", said a statement by the German chancellery.

Jane's by IHS Markit noted that coming after the US nuclear posture review Putin's statement "not only signals strength to a domestic Russian audience, but is a clear sign to the USA that Russia will continue to modernize its nuclear forces to ensure their credibility".

"We need to ensure that our nuclear stockpile stays a credible nuclear deterrent".

"We are not surprised by the statements and the American people should rest assured that we are fully prepared", said Pentagon chief spokesperson Dana White.

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

The broadcast came a day after Putin announced an array of new nuclear weapons, in one of his most bellicose speeches in years, saying they could hit nearly any point in the world and evade a US-built missile shield. "Russia has such weapons already", he said.

"I did not see a map of Florida [there]", Peskov said. "It's not a bluff, trust me".

The Russian President also threatened during his state of the nation address that any nuclear attack on allies of Moscow is to be considered as an attack on Russia, leading it to make a quick action. "You have failed to contain Russian Federation".

Putin's bombshell announcement comes as he is set to easily win another six-year presidential term in the March 18 election.

His address was accompanied by videos and computer simulations of the new weapons, shown on giant screens at a conference hall near the Kremlin.

"We think he was playing to the audience", she said, adding that Putin's boasts were irresponsible.

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

"Russia has been developing destabilizing weapons systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations".

Kelly then touched on a few facets of Russia's meddling, which the United States intelligence community said was done specifically on orders from the Kremlin itself.

The high-speed underwater drone also has an "intercontinental" range and is capable of slamming a nuclear warhead into both aircraft carriers and coastal facilities, he said.

"The missile's name should honor our guys who died in Syria", Kadyrov said. "Our system defends against ballistic missiles from outside the Euro-Atlantic area", Lungescu said, in reference to the Middle East and further afield.

Russia's embassy in the USA issued a separate statement, pointing out that the Sarmat missile Putin showcased is within the provisions of the 1982 INF treaty.

Trump has also posted about the USA steel industry.

"The collapse of the Soviet Union", Putin immediately shot back.

Putin emphasized that the new weapons were designed in full compliance to the U.S.

Those accusations came after Putin announced a slew of new defense systems, including a missile that "can reach any point in the world".
