Putin: Russia will never extradite its citizens to US

However, he also said he did not want to change one historical period for another and would rather focus on a prosperous future for Russian Federation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin demanded Washington send over proof that Russian citizens interfered in the November 2016 presidential elections.

Russia's thousands of missiles easily could overwhelm existing US missile defenses in the event of a full-scale war.

The weirdest idea of all is a nuclear power cruise missile with global range.

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

"We must continue to act actively, use offensive tactics and strategy in the fight against terror", he said, adding that Russian Federation is ready to cooperate with any country in this field.

The Pentagon so far sees "anything in the regional context as fair game", said the official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy hasn't been finalized. Putin said initial production is underway.

"Everything he said, whether it was for real or not, has to be treated seriously by policy makers", he said.


While Russia may have achieved a technological breakthrough, it's just as likely that "the Kremlin is counting on a miracle", said Alexander Golts, an independent defense analyst based in Moscow.

Critics warn that these systems encourage competitors to develop more sophisticated arms, are expensive and have questionable effectiveness.

The State Department called the video animation "cheesy" and said it was "unfortunate" that it depicted "a nuclear attack on the United States". "Now, it appears that the Trump administration is going to ramp up these defenses, increasing Russia's concerns".

The concept of US missile defense emerged in the early days of the Cold War with the goal of protecting the American homeland from the Soviet Union's growing arsenal.

Among the new cutting-edge weapons are the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, the Kinzhal hypersonic weapons system, a nuclear-armed cruise missile, as well as a dual-capable unmanned underwater vehicle, which is meant for conventional and nuclear missions. "This is a very strong argument for those who want to develop the USA military potential". The military and its allies also operate sea and land missile defense systems in Europe and Asia.

"The work on the modern weaponry has taken many years. Give us an official request".

Counterintelligence veterans also largely agreed that, from a practical view, Mueller's charges against the Russians carry little weight because Russia has always been engaged in information warfare with the US.
