US working on new missile policy to counter nuclear threats

Putin, a former KGB officer who has brought many veterans of Soviet-era security agencies into high positions, is set to secure a new six-year presidential term in a March 18 election. I think there's lot of political posturing in that sense, Putin also said that now the United States must listen to us, must see what our capabilities are, of course, the weapons systems and the display of weapons is important, but the political aspect of Putin's speech, I think, is even more interesting. "By the way, these are the figures for early 2017, and the capacity now stands at 1,025 billion tonnes", said the President.

Sputnik: Despite the missile Putin showcased being within the provisions of the 1987 INF Treaty Washington has already accused Moscow of treaty violations, why is that? The Trump administration also plans to expand its missile-defence programme to counter threats from Russian Federation and China, rather than just rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea, according to a draft strategy due for release this month, The Washington Post reported on Friday.

"We are not surprised by (Putin's) statement, and the American people should rest assured that we are fully prepared", Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said.

Other analysts have said the move marks the start of an arms race, though a Kremlin spokesman denied the suggestion.

We're told Rick went to a hospital by ambulance and is receiving a respiratory treatment, possibly for pneumonia. A source told the gossip website, meanwhile, that the medical scare was the result of a heart issue.


"Its aim is not only to remove a rival on the global arms market but also to undermine the defense capability of some states and increase their lagging behind in the military sphere", Putin said. Moscow has also been denying allegations of trying to influence the USA presidential election. But adding the variety to the old kinds of systems, the new weapons systems that are coming out, the long-range missile capabilities and the missile defense systems that are coming out, all of that points to the competition that's going to stay on and play in the coming decade, and I think that the INF Treaty violations, I think there have been back and forth between both sides and are hard to absolutely verify one way or the other.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has emphasized the impossibility of handing over the thirteen Russians the United States has charged of the alleged 2016 presidential election meddling.

Earlier on Monday, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow had evidence that the US was trying to interfere in Russia's presidential election, but did not say what that evidence was.

He devoted more than a third of his annual address to the weapons, using videos and animated charts to present high-speed underwater drones, cruise missiles with "practically unlimited range", a nuclear-powered ballistic missile and hypersonic weapons capable of dodging United States defences at up to 10 times the speed of sound. "Never. Russia does not extradite its citizens to anyone".
