NEW YORK POST – YARON STEINBUCH
Vladimir Putin warned the West Thursday that Russia has developed a high tech new arsenal — including a supersonic nuclear weapon that can reach any spot on Earth while avoiding missile-defense systems.
Delivering his annual State of the Union address, the Russian president said his country was prepared to use its nukes if attacked, and added that Moscow would consider a nuclear attack on its allies as a nuclear attack on the Motherland — and would retaliate immediately.
“I want to tell all those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years, sought to win unilateral advantages over Russia, introduced unlawful sanctions aimed to contain our country’s development: all what you wanted to impede with your policies have already happened,” he said. “You have failed to contain Russia.”
