RUSSIA CLAIMS NEW MILITARY CAPABILITIES
In a major speech that has both domestic and international ramifications for Vladimir Putin, who will seek a fourth term in the upcoming controlled election, the Russian president outlined the latest Russian offensive weapons that are directly aimed at countering US claims of military superiority. The UK Guardian had this summary:
Speaking in a nationally televised address to the country’s political elite weeks before a presidential election, the president showed video and animations of ICBMs, nuclear-powered cruise missiles, underwater drones and other weapons that he said Russia had developed as a result of the US pulling out of the 1972 anti-ballistic missile treaty signed with the Soviet Union.
Leave it to the Russians, who have cheated on every disarmament treaty, to bring up the ABM treaty—which was a major mistake for the US when it was signed. Only the Soviets had significant ABMs at the time and they didn’t want the US developing new ones. The US did develop sophisticated anti-ballistic missiles after backing out of the treaty, but they were woefully flawed by design, having no explosive warheads, and being few in number. The US uses “kinetic” kill vehicles—large pointed hunks of depleted Uranium—that must make physical contact with an incoming warhead. This is nearly impossible with the new class of maneuvering hypersonic warheads and missiles Russia and China are developing.
Putin issued a message of defiance. “I would like to tell those who have been trying to escalate the arms race for the past 15 years, to gain unilateral advantages over Russia, and to impose restrictions and sanctions … The attempt at curbing Russia has failed,” he said.
Yes, it has, but, in fact, Russian rearmament and modernization has been going on for over a decade and no one in the media has given it any notice until Russia came to the aid of Syria and blocked US intervention there. Russian advancements in weaponry have always been aided and abetted by globalists going back to the Wilson, FDR and Truman administrations, which gave aid to the Russian Revolution (in gold), transferred nuclear weapons plans to Russia and even gave them their first load of enriched uranium to facilitate Russia’s first atomic weapon. Here’s the current evidence of recent technology transfers to the Russians by Hillary Clinton donors that may have contributed to the development of these hypersonic weapons.
