Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said that after the withdrawal of the US side from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Agreement, started an arms race between Russia and the US, intimidated him. Putin's statement that they are in a state of alert regarding the missiles known as 'city killers' became the number one item on the world's agenda.
Putin, who said that after the withdrawal of the US side from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Agreement, started an arms race between Russia and the US, emphasized that they are in favor of peace. But by comparing the weapons in the inventory of the Russian army with the USA, he seemed to be intimidated.
Speaking at an energy forum in Moscow, Putin said about hypersonic missiles that can wipe cities off the map, "This is not just hypersonic, it's an intercontinental missile, and Russia is already on alert."
Underlining that the missiles developed by Russia are 5 times faster than the versions in the USA, Putin's words soon became a topic for the world.
The British newspaper Mirror announced this development to its readers with the words 'Putin's boasting of having hypersonic weapons has increased fears of a military conflict with the US and a potential 3rd World War with the West'.
