Vladimir Putin, before election, unveils new nuclear weapons to counter West

Just last month the U.S. cast Russian Federation as the main reason it needs to develop two new nuclear weapons: A lower-yield warhead for a submarine-launched ballistic missile and a sea-launched nuclear cruise missile.

Putin left his usual Kremlin perch to speak from a nearby exhibition centre - allowing him to show a series of video montages of missiles crossing mountains and oceans, heading over the Atlantic before striking the United States eastern seaboard.

The interview also came after Putin had boasted about a new Russian weapon that could evade a US-built missile defence system. "The point why this is so important is, we haven't heard this kind of thing, really, since the Cold War". Nobody listened to us. "Listen to us now", Putin said Thursday, prompting a standing ovation from the audience of top officials, lawmakers and celebrities.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Defense One executive editor Kevin Baron was asked about Putin's recent presentation that showed Russian missiles raining down on Florida.

He said the creation of the new weapons has made NATO's USA -led missile defense "useless", putting an end to what he described as years of Western efforts to sidetrack and weaken Russian Federation.

He added, "I think, prospective air and missile defence systems".

"They do propaganda", said Putin.

United Kingdom video games market exceeds £5bn in 2017
Or maybe we might not even hear anything until BlizzCon, where the company saves up its biggest announcements for the year. Blizzard on Twitter earlier this week shared a video of a demon-themed nightlight being turned on and off.

Is it deployed? No. Putin said the Russian military has begun the "active phase" for testing the new missile. "That's the key", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters.

The United States government said these are false claims and made many people comment about how this is reminiscent of the Cold War arms rivalry.

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

Congressman Mac Thornberry, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said that for too long presidents of both parties have let all sorts of persistent Russian aggression go unanswered, whether violations of multiple treaties, election meddling, planting fake news stories, or invading sovereign countries.

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 USA state of Florida.

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

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