Putin flaunted new weapons

Perhaps it was the Russian deaths in Syria from U.S. bombing but U.S. impunity seems to be coming to an end writes Dr Arshad M Khan Perhaps it was the Russian deaths in Syria from U.S. bombing but U.S. impunity seems to be coming to an end writes Dr Arshad M Khan

The Russian leader said during his interview with Kelly that the U.S. had to give the Russian government material evidence proving Russia was involved in interfering in the 2016 election.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated that they would not extradite their 13 nationals accused of meddling in the 2016 United States (U.S.) presidential elections.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged the Federal Security Service (FSB) to step up its cybersecurity efforts and strengthen measures to protect secret and sensitive communications.

The leaders "shared their serious concerns" about the statements and agreed they "detract from productive discussion of a range of issues between Russian Federation and the West", the White House said.

During the 14th State of Nation Address to Federal Assembly Putin announced that Russian Federation has nuclear weapons that could get around defense systems, in addition to underwater drones and intercontinental missiles.

Lungescu said NATO's missile defence system is built to respond to attacks from outside Europe and North America and not directed against Russian Federation.

"Defendants, posing as USA persons and creating false US personas, operated social media pages and groups designed to attract US audiences", the indictment reads.

Nest's smart-home products will no longer be sold on Amazon
It's unclear whether third-party sellers will continue selling Nest gadgets, but Amazon itself will not. As payback, Google blocked YouTube from Amazon's smart-speaker-with-a-screen, the Amazon Echo Show .

Such a technology could evade US defenses and alter the balance of power. Russia's new deterrent, Putin said, is invulnerable to interception.

Sputnik: Experts said that this announcement, the development of a new strategic weapon, might start a new arms race, what are your thoughts on that?

Putin announced an "unstoppable" nuclear-powered "global cruise missile" that has "practically unlimited" range, then showed an animation of the device bobbing and weaving around the globe. 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.

In the community left a lot of reviews and residents of the United States of Ukrainian descent. The United States denies it has done so.

The Russian president is wrong, of course.

With ties between Russian Federation and the USA roiled by allegations of Kremlin meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections and deepening confrontation in Syria, the two powers risk a return to unbridled nuclear competition as the chances diminish of rescuing decades-old arms control agreements. "Moscow is now openly stating that it's prepared for the destruction of the system of strategic arms control that it and Washington built up over 50 years". Though Democrats have long derided "Star Wars" they may now find space-based defense more palatable than building 100-megaton bombs to deter Russia's "doomsday drone". Unfortunately, the USA hasn't developed "a global missile defense system" but we should.
