Putin says Russian Federation is ready to deploy new hypersonic nuclear missile

Putin says Russian Federation is ready to deploy new hypersonic nuclear missile

The test comes amid bitter tensions in Russia-U.S. relations, which have sunk to their lowest level since the Cold War times over the conflict in Ukraine, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"The new Avangard missile system is invincible for today's and future air defence systems and missile defence systems". Less is known of concrete American production plans, with some experts suggesting that that United States research is driven by different objectives in non-nuclear hypersonic boost-glide system research.

The Kremlin told Russian news agencies the test had taken place in far eastern Kamchatka while Putin was at the national defense control center. Later, the Russian leader said during his annual Q&A session on June 7 that "the Avangard system is already in the process of its manufacture and has entered its serial production and in 2019 we are planning to deliver it to the Armed Forces".

As it stands, USA military experts offer a grim assessment of America's ability to intercept such a missile: "We don't have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon against us", said US Air Force General John E. Hyten, the Commander of US Strategic Command.
