Trump has 'autocratic envy' toward Putin — Ex-CIA director

Vladimir Putin Brags About New Russian Nuclear Weapon

The warnings of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies are "unacceptable" and do not contribute to the easing of tension. "One animation showed warheads raining down on Florida".

And in a touch of dark humor, he invited Russians to join a Defense Ministry contest to name some of the weapons.

While the US shouldn't discount "all that Putin said on nukes", tweeted Steven Pifer, a former foreign service diplomat in Moscow and USA ambassador to Ukraine, the message was "aimed first & foremost at #Russian public".

White told Pentagon reporters that USA missile defense has never been about Russian Federation.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White said the U.S. would stick to its insistence that United States missile defences are not a threat to Russian Federation. "We need to make sure we have a credible nuclear deterrent and we are confident we are prepared to defend this nation no matter what", said White.

"With all due respect for you [interviewer Megyn Kelly] personally, with all due respect for Congress, you must have people with legal degrees", Putin went on. "It's not a bluff, trust me".

The spat came as relations between the powers lie frozen at post-Cold War lows over the Syria and Ukraine conflicts and accusations that Moscow interfered in the United States presidential election in 2016. "You have failed to contain Russian Federation".

When asked about the White House reaction to Putin's speech, Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president "understands the threats facing America and our allies in this century and is determined to protect our homeland and preserve peace through strength".

Chillingly he added: 'Russia remained a nuclear power but no one wanted to listen to us.

"Sanders adds the new defense budget of $700 billion will ensure the USA military will be stronger than ever".

"The other side also has the armaments, against which Russian Federation is incapable of protecting itself", Peskov said. The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty was originally signed in 1972.

"They know very well that it's not about them, our missile defense has never been about them", White added.

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

Tom Plant, director of proliferation and nuclear policy at the defense think-tank RUSI, also said he was not sure how much of the announcement to believe.

For the US there is no need for great alarm, but a keen eye must be kept on the aggressive Kremlin.

Putin told Kelly that some of the missiles are battle ready, and the nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missiles have been successfully tested.

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

To complete the list, he mentioned a smaller hypersonic missile that is already operational and has a range of more than 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a new laser weapon.

Scroll down for the full list of Putin's Twitter crowd. It's just each of these weapons systems is at a different stage of readiness.

"It is certainly concerning to see your government, to see your country, put together that kind of video that shows the Russian Government attacking the US".

The Russian military has been left red-faced over fake footage in the past.
