Putin: Russia to Deploy New Strategic High-precision Hypersonic Weapons

“We are developing and will deploy new strategic high-precision systems that have no rivals across the globe. These hypersonic systems will be capable of changing the course and height. They will be practically invulnerable, including to air defense systems,” Russian president Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday, speaking on live television and radio.

This announcement came in answer to a spectator’s question when Russia would start equipping its army rather than exporting weapons. Putin also said that Russia would continue providing its army with mobile missile systems, state-of-the-art tanks, new and modernized air defense systems.

“We spend more money on re-equipping Armed Forces than we receive in profits from arms exports,” the president said. He said only a few years ago, Russia did not buy anything for the army, MosNews reported.

“A great deal has been done in the past few years to restore the defense industry’s financial health,” Putin said, adding this included debt settlements and jobs.

He also said that expansion to foreign markets was a way to support Russia’s defense sector financially. “If our specialists make it to foreign markets and uphold our interests there, it will be a very good job,” the president said.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
