Russia to Place New Unique Weapon Systems on Combat Alert: Putin

New unique weapon systems will shortly go on combat duty in Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with graduates of military universities in the Kremlin on Monday, TASS reports. 

"Hypersonic weapons - the Avangard and Kinzhal systems have already gone on combat duty. Coming next are other unique armaments that include the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, the Tsirkon shipborne hypersonic missile, S-500 ‘Prometei’ surface-to-air missile systems and others," the Russian leader said.

Russia is already working out a new state armaments program with a planning horizon until 2034, taking into account the breakthrough innovations by the country’s leading research institutes and design bureaus, Putin pointed out. 

"Its implementation will be focused on further strengthening the country’s defense potential. And, of course, you will operate this hardware," the Russian leader said, addressing the graduates of Russia’s military universities.
