Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the task of starting the development of new weapons that may become operational in many years’ time.

“The key issue on our agenda is to form another long-term state program for armaments. The current program extending till 2027 was launched earlier this year. It incorporates the modern world trends in the development of military hardware and weapons as well as the experience of using Russian weaponry in combat in Syria,” Putin said at a meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission on Wednesday.

“As a result the armed forces are to get the newest weapon systems surpassing the parameters of their foreign counterparts. Putin mentioned the missile system Sarmat, fifth generation fighter jet Sukhoi-57, highly-protected main battle tank on the platform Armata, air defense system S-500 and submarine of project 677.

“Meanwhile, it is necessary to move forward and to start planning the development and production of new generation weapon systems that will determine the image of the Russian Armed Forces in the long term, for the forthcoming decade.

But there is still very dangerous 5th column of evil Khazars inside Russia. Goyim cannot be friends with those hideous creatures because Goyim are only animals for them.

Why develop shuch weapons? Russia will never use them against the US/Zio/Nazi tyranny anyway as past experience has proved.

Russia should develope first the whole economy and industry. Until they are not able to ensure the mass production of weapons (look at armata, su-57, etc.), there is no sense to develope new weapons.

Now that the Oil Ruble along with gold backed currencies with Russia’s supply of energy is a dominant player thanks to BRICs + multilateral partners there s no reason to not develop stability and balance including what is needed on all levels of a sovereign nation. It is unfortunate that those nations given a seat at the UN to protect their sovereignty as a nation play the pay to play game either through money bribes, blackmail or just plain old psychopath BS. It is very rare to see a positive vote or support for their very existence in the big… Read more »

You are neither a gentleman nor a scholar, oh prince you must believe in Divine Right to rule over the masses. Is this American exceptionalism at its finest Peter Principle? The US Constitution does not provide for such BS.

Let’s hope he won’t go into the nuke-propulsion drone carrying multiple nukes.
Yankees abandoned such project for the same reasons I’m totally against…

Very very bad toy.
Especially that no sane country would accept overflight for obvious reasons, now, add to this that you’re likely ending with any bad guy wanting for nukes into shooting it down over a continental plateau and go recuperating the warheads and the technology and all others willing to shoot it down preferably over the Marianna’s’ fault or other area with serious depth.
A wonder of atmospheric nuclear pollution…
