There is no denying that the Russian government is not our friend, but just how nefarious can they get?
Much of the relationship between the US and Russia is cloaked in both secrecy and confusion. For decades, Russia has been attempting to replicate US technology, but at a staggeringly horrible rate. In fact, some of Russia’s most major disasters come with a very distinct, Chernobyl-like shroud of mystery. The Kremlin certainly doesn’t want the world knowing what they are up to.
This also applies to the Russian federation’s military might.
Now, as Americans being to settle into a “New Cold War” between the two superpowers, Russian President Vladimir Putin is concerned as to why the US has so few hypersonic missiles.
The Russian president said that he told Trump in a recent phone call that the US could buy a hypersonic nuclear weapon Russia is working on, thus creating a kind of balance, but that Trump refused, telling him that the US was building its own weapons, Reuters reported.
“If you want we can sell you some, and this way we will balance everything out,” the Russian president said he told Trump, according to Russia’s state-run TASS news agency.
It would come as no surprise if the sentiment was made mockingly, however, as Russia has previously claimed that these same hypersonic devices are integral to their ability to beat US missile defense systems.
This offers comes at a time when US-Russian tensions are at an all time high, due to the latter’s “systematic” attempts to hijack American democracy during the 2016 election.
