Russia Gives USA Nuclear Threat
Putin gave warning for the first time, saying Russia could deploy hypersonic missiles on ships and submarines which could lurk outside U.S. territorial waters if Washington now moved to deploy intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Europe.
“(We’re talking about) naval delivery vehicles: submarines or surface ships. And we can put them, given the speed and range of our missiles... in neutral waters. Plus they are not stationary, they move and they will have to find them,” Putin said, according to a Kremlin transcript. "You work it out: Mach nine (missles speed) and over 1,000 km (missle range).”
Tensions have recently heightened as peace treaty agreements have broken down between the United States and Russia.
