White House Reveals Concerns of European Leaders Over Russian Advanced Weapons

  • Putin Goes Nuclear

Russian Federation was confirmed to not be seeking the launch of a new arms race through its work on a new generation of "invincible" nuclear weapons.

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.

The Russian leader also voiced concerns about a new United States nuclear doctrine, saying that Russia's own doctrine was defensive and only envisaged the use of nuclear weapons in response to an attack.

Specifically, Nauert said that Moscow had proven itself in violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), through its development of ground-launched cruise missiles. "The point why this is so important is, we haven't heard this kind of thing, really, since the Cold War".

The video footage also contained a computer generated sequence showing the potential power and reach of the new rocket, which included bombs raining down over the US state of Florida.

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

"You see in previous periods all my ancestors were serfs and I'm the president", agencies cited Putin as saying.

"We cannot respond to that if they do not violate Russian laws", Putin told NBC's Megyn Kelly when asked whether Moscow would take action against the named individuals.


During his state of the nation speech, Vladimir Putin said: "No one was listening, now you will listen".

The Russian president unveiled a powerful intercontinental ballistic rocket that he claims can bypass any missile defence system on earth.

He added: "For the foreseeable future, it looks that the US-Russia agenda will be limited to just one item: war prevention".

Despite Putin's campaign promises when he returned to the Kremlin in 2012 after four years as prime minister, his last term was marked by a fall in living standards and Russia's worldwide isolation.

Putin made the comment during an interview with NBC's Megyn Kelly on Thursday. Putin pointedly highlighted new systems that would circumvent BMD capabilities such as long-range cruise missiles and a hypersonic glide vehicle.

"The collapse of the Soviet Union", Putin immediately said.

"We aren't threatening anyone, we aren't going to attack anyone, we aren't going to take anything from anyone", he said.
