Vladimir Putin Brags About New Russian Nuclear Weapon

Journalists watch as Russian President Vladimir Putin gives his annual state of the nation address in Moscow Thursday. In addition to announcing the development of new weapons Putin set a slew of ambitious domestic goals vowing to boost living standards

In his almost two hour speech, Putin showed tests of a new missile system he said could fly at 20 times the speed of sound and maneuver up and down, and is not owned by any other country.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin showcased a number of new strategic weapons that "can pierce any defense systems", and the U.S. State Department accused Moscow of violating arms control treaties.

Speaking in a state-of-the-nation speech, Putin said the weapons include a nuclear-powered cruise missile, a nuclear-powered underwater drone and new hypersonic missile that have no equivalent elsewhere in the world. Nobody listened to us.

When Kelly reminded Putin about Mueller's indictment, he said the request "has to go through official channels, not through the press or yelling and hollering in the United States Congress".

When asked about the USA missile defense system, she said that defense has never been about Russian Federation.

The hypersonic vehicle "flies at a speed 20 times the speed of sound. and it can maneuver thousands of kilometers up and down and right to left", Putin said, gesticulating energetically.

She said it was "unfortunate" to watch a Russian video animation Putin showed during his address that she said depicted "a nuclear attack on the United States". "Our system defends against ballistic missiles from outside the Euro-Atlantic area", Lungescu said, in reference to the Middle East and further afield.

Hayden added, "The way he is able to govern, the things Putin is able to say, the way things seem responsive to Putin without the institutions of government pushing back on him, yeah, I think he'd like that".

Scientists find a previously unknown mega-colony of penguins on Antarctic islands
Michael Polito, one of the researchers from Louisiana State University , said he was amazed by the number of penguins he saw. That translates to about 1.5 million Adélie penguins, or roughly 20% of the total population of penguins in Antarctica .

Russian President Vladimir Putin said this week that he can not "respond" to the US's accusations of Russian election interference "if they do not violate Russian laws".

Already angry at NATO's expansion eastwards into its old Soviet sphere of influence, Putin said in a speech on Thursday that any attack on Moscow's allies would be regarded as an attack on Russian Federation itself and draw an immediate response. "We're not surprised. These weapons that are discussed have been in development a very long time".

News' Megyn Kelly posed that question to the Russian strongman in an exclusive video after his presentation to the Duma, pressing Putin on his nuclear doctrine.

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.

Chillingly he added: 'Russia remained a nuclear power but no one wanted to listen to us.

The US intelligence community concluded a year ago that Russia-linked actors interfered in the 2016 US election on specific orders from Putin.

Even with that admission, no action was taken despite the recommendations from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Dempsey.
