Putin claims Russia has cutting-edge new missiles

Other observers are skeptical about Russia's supposed new arsenal, because Moscow has not shown proof of successful tests.

"Now they need to take account of a new reality and understand that everything I have said today is not a bluff", said Putin, claiming that the nuclear-powered cruise missile was tested previous year and boosts not only a "practically unlimited range" but also advanced maneuverability and speed.

Putin said the USA should send Russia's general prosecutor an official request, instead of using alleged propaganda to attack the Kremlin.

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 U.S. presidential election in 2016. The main defendants - a Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin and is located in Saint Petersburg "online research".

"The thing that sounds mad, the nuclear-propulsion thing, is potentially feasible", he said, adding: "I think it's insane".

Russia's President Vladimir Putin denied accusations that his country intends to spark a new Cold War, NBC News reported.

"Sanders adds the new defense budget of $700 billion will ensure the U.S. military will be stronger than ever". "Give us materials. Give us information".

Tiger Woods to play in Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor
If Tiger Woods continues to play well then he will be in the mix to win the first golf major of the year, according to experts . The commitment to Valspar, held in Florida, is somewhat surprising given that Woods, 42, has never played in the event before.

On Friday Putin said Russian Federation had been "working for a long time" on the new weapons.

Michaela Dodge, a Heritage Foundation missile defence expert, said Putin's statements confirmed that the Trump Administration was right to build its recent review of nuclear weapons policy around concerns about Russian Federation.

"The missile's name should honor our guys who died in Syria", Kadyrov said.

In parts of the interview he appeared to suggest there was not enough evidence, and in other parts of the interview that the Russians had not broken Russian law.

The White House dismissed Putin's comments.

"The old man only perked up when he was talking about how he can destroy the world". "I should specifically say that Russia's growing military strength is not a threat to anyone; we have never had any plans to use this potential for offensive – let alone aggressive – goals".

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.
