As the weapon name contest went on, Russian officials and lawmakers insisted that Putin's speech wasn't an announcement of a new arms race but a warning to Washington to treat Russia as an equal partner.

Putin has stressed that his speech could not be considered a beginning of the arms race as it is a retaliatory response to the USA withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM Treaty), as well as to the process of creating a global system of missile defense, according to the spokesman.

On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin unveiled what he said was a new arsenal of advanced weaponry including nuclear devices immune to enemy interception.

"As we have repeatedly made clear, the alliance's missile defence is neither designed nor directed against Russian Federation".

On Monday morning he posted an image that showed his ankle in heavy strapping and surrounded by a brace. "08:10. Finished for today", said the caption.

"Russia is not going to attack anyone, and these weapons do not present a danger to anyone who is not hatching plans to attack our country".

Among the new weapons systems Putin boasted: a massive liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missile, known as a Sarmat, that can travel around the world by air and strike the United States, an underwater nuclear drone that can travel thousands of miles, and a long-range nuclear cruise missile. During his speech, Putin spoke about the latest weapon developed and created Russian Federation. "You have failed to contain Russian Federation".

In his speech, Putin showed tests of a new missile system he said could fly at 20 times the speed of sound and manuever up and down, and is not owned by any other country. Vladimir Putin gave a speech in which he outlined what USA intelligence has known for some time: They've got some fancy new missiles that can go farther and evade detection and destruction better than ever before. She said it was "unfortunate" to watch the Russian video animation Putin showed depicting "a nuclear attack on the United States".

"We don't regard that as the behavior of a responsible global player", she said. It could loft its payload over a longer distance - capable of crossing the South Pole as well as the North Pole, the shortest route between Russian Federation and the United States.

Marek Madaric, a member of Prime Minister Robert Fico's leftist Smer-Social Democracy party, said it was his personal decision. Gaspar says the seven were detained as "suspects" with approval from the state prosecution.

"Russia has been developing destabilising weapons systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations". This engine gave the cruise missile an effective unlimited range, he said, distinguishing it from other cruise missiles that typically have a range of about 600 miles.

According to the leader, the drone sub is capable of travelling faster than a torpedo and capable of carrying both conventional and nuclear weapons. In an interview with NBC the Russian president was asked to confirm if this new missile was actually operational, to which he responded: All of those tests were successful.

China's steady expansion of its nuclear weapons capability, North Korea's threatening activities, and the failure of all acknowledged nuclear weapons states, including Britain, France, Israel, Pakistan and India, to abide by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty's commitment to gradually eliminate nuclear arsenals are all adding to the anxieties and instability roiling weapons policy.
