Russian Federation releases new launch footage of their 'Avangard' hypersonic missile

Putin Belarusian leader to discuss integration in Eurasia

He added that the new weapon "essentially makes missile defenses useless".

The Avangard missiles are created to fly faster and at higher altitude to avoid missile defense systems.

The missile that carries the Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle is the UR-100NUUTKh, an ICBM-class missile.

In March, he pledged to strengthen his country's nuclear arsenal in response to development of the USA missile defense system, which he said could compromise Russia's nuclear deterrent. It's a big moment in the life of the armed forces and in the life of the country. USA officials also expressed concerns about the agency's efforts in developing the missiles falling far behind in comparison to potential adversaries.

The presidents of Belarus and Russia, Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin, have made a decision to meet once again before the end of the year, the date will be coordinated later, Belarus-1 Television reported on Tuesday referring to Lukashenko's Spokesperson Natalya Eismont.

One shopper said: "I recognised little Prince George holding Kate's hand and Charlotte with a red bow in her hair". The Range was set up by former market trader Chris Dawson in 1989 with its first shop opening in Plymouth.

That is one of the rationales for the super-speedy, nimble Avangard. American officials have long pointed out that the United States doesn't have anywhere near the capacity to stop an onslaught of Russia's vast supply of nuclear missiles.

A hypersonic glider is a warhead able to fly through the atmosphere at an exceptionally high speed. Officials in Washington were also anxious about the rise of maneuverable missiles that can strike their targets within seconds.

"Starting from next year, in 2019, a new intercontinental strategic system Avangard will enter service in the Russian army and the first regiment in the Strategic Missile Troops will be deployed", Putin added.

But for Putin, displays of terrifying new weaponry represent a way to excite Russians who miss the superpower status of the Soviet Union as well an attempt to bring Washington to the negotiating table.

Russian Federation started the Avangard project in 2002, after the United States withdrew from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union. State media reported that all technical parameters were verified.
