Putin Told Army to Shoot Down Plane After Drunk Passenger's Bomb Threat

Putin Told Army to Shoot Down Plane After Drunk Passenger's Bomb Threat

Russian Federation claimed to have successfully test-launched a hypersonic missile, one of a range of nuclear-capable weapons announced by president Vladimir Putin earlier this month.

In a recent speech, Putin claimed his nuclear weapons could be used to attack the United States. Each weapon system is engineered to slip behind America's vast network of early warning and defense systems. The ministry said the "launch was conducted normally" and the missile hit its target.

Set to rousing, patriotic music, the video then shows a missile detaching from the airborne plane and gliding across the dark sky, leaving a fiery trail behind. It has a range of 6,200 miles, a top speed of over 56 knots and can descend to depths of 3,280 feet.

The missile has been deployed in the Southern Military District since December 1, he added.

Dmitry Rogozin, the deputy prime minister, said on Facebook that work had been carried out to modernise the "unique" MiG-31 that will carry the missile.

"Crews of the air system on the testing air alert sorties completed over 250 flights year-to-date under the combat training plan".

Russia's Tass news agency reported that when asked if there were any circumstances where he could envisage returning Crimea to Ukraine, Putin replies: "What are you talking about?" According to Russia's president, the missile is highly maneuverable and capable of penetrating all defenses, including "future defenses". The passenger was drunk and the plane would continue its flight to Turkey.

Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (Democrat-Connecticut) called on world leaders to denounce "soundly and promptly" what he called Putin's "repulsive" remarks.

Vladimir Putin's controversial remark came when the host asked him about the 13 Russian nationals who were charged by special counsel Robert Mueller with violating USA criminal laws in order to interfere with USA elections and political processes. "Secondly, we don't have this quantity of tools", he said.His remarks about Russian Federation not having the ability to affect or interfere with USA elections came just a few days after he announced that his country had developed a new type of nuclear weapon.
