(St. Petersburg) President Vladimir Putin has promised that the Russian navy will be able to spot and destroy “any target” during a large naval parade in St. Petersburg on Sunday.
“Today, the Russian navy has everything to constantly defend the motherland and our national interests.
According to him, Russia has earned its place among the “major world maritime powers” by developing efficient naval aviation, reliable coastal defense systems and state-of-the-art high-precision hypersonic weapons in the short and long range. There is no equal in the world and it is constantly and successfully evolving ”.
The speech was made during the Russian Navy’s annual grand parade on Neva in St. Petersburg, the second largest city in the country.
In the wake of strong tensions with Western countries, Vladimir Putin has not stopped appreciating new weapons in recent years, according to his country “Invincible”.
Among them is the new generation Avant-Garde hypersonic missile, capable of reaching Mach 27 speeds and changing course and altitude, which was put into service with the Russian Army in December 2019 or will fly the Zircon at Mach 7, which was successfully tested in July.
Many other weapons are in development, such as the Air Force’s Kinzel Hypersonic Missile and the Borewestnik Nuclear Missile.
The state-of-the-art S-500 air defense systems, known as “unparalleled in the world”, were successfully tested on July 20.
