Putin doubles down on nuclear capabilities in sit-down interview with NBC

President Vladimir Putin has revealed a new set of developed weapons to be including devices that are resistant to interceptions from enemies. The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty was originally signed in 1972. "Give us materials, give us information".

According to the documents released in 2015, the Status-6 could carry a multi-megaton nuclear bomb with a range of about 10,000 kilometres moving at 56 knots, or 104 km/h and travel to a depth of more than 1,000 metres.

While submarines are supposed to be as quiet as possible, the Status-6 wouldn't need to be, due to its speed.

Putin claimed to Kelly that the undetectable missile has been tested and "the test was excellent".

"This makes it absolutely invincible for any forms of air and missile defence", he boasted, calling it an 'ideal weapon'.

He also showed the "Sarmat" - an intercontinental ballistic missile that will replace Russia's existing rockets and comes with technology to outsmart missile defence. Being nuclear-powered, it can fly around for months, due to its nearly limitless energy supply.

During a video demonstration of the new missile, what appeared to be the state of Florida was used in a graphic showing a missile attack.

Russian Federation has been outraged by NATO's expansion into former Soviet satellite states in eastern Europe and Putin stated that Russian Federation would react to an attack on one of its allies, though he said it would only ever be defensive in nature.

"The collapse of the Soviet Union", Putin immediately shot back.

Vietnam is also among the larger recipients of scholarships offered under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation program. Vietnam and several other ASEAN member countries have territorial disputes with China over the resource-rich South China Sea .

Putin said some of the weapons have been tested and were provided to the Russian military.

Instead, all Russian officials are now insisting the talk of nuclear weapons was "non-militaristic", and that Putin was simply trying to emphasize that Russia retained "parity" with America's own massive nuclear arsenal.

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.

"Russia has no intention of entering an arms race", Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday, adding that the weapons presented by the Russian leader aimed to maintain a "strategic parity, which is essential for maintaining peace and stability".

"We aren't threatening anyone, we aren't going to attack anyone, we aren't going to take anything from anyone", he said. "This is the opposite of reduction, it's the opposite of a new start and any kind of arms control".

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

Russia's embassy in the USA issued a separate statement, pointing out that the Sarmat missile Putin showcased is within the provisions of the 1982 INF treaty.

But while Putin's announcement might boost Russia's clout in the immediate future, military analyst Golts told AFP that getting involved in an arms race could backfire on Moscow.

"If you were to speak about an arms race, then an arms race began exactly at the time and moment the USA opted out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty", he said.
