Russia Ready To Repel A ‘Lightning-Speed’ Nuclear Strike

Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) are fully prepared to repel any nuclear attack, including the “lightning speed” nuclear strikes. SMF Central Command Chief Andrei Burbin told RSN Radio that Russia would conduct a retaliatory strike in any circumstances “without hesitation.” Burbin said that if there was a challenge to repel a lightning speed nuclear attack, “it will be done in fixed time, that’s dead true.”

Russia Ready To Repel A 'Lightning-Speed' Nuclear Strike

Russia’s rearmament remains on track

Major General Andrei Burbin said that Russia’s strategic missile forces were positioned geographically such that they cannot be destroyed by “any global strike.” He added that Russian nuclear operators will act without any delay if given an order to carry out nuclear strikes. A retaliatory nuclear strike is guaranteed by “Dead Hand,” a fully automatic and modernized “Perimeter” system.

According to RT News, the Perimeter system collects data from different sources including seismic and radioactivity sensors spread across Russia. If collected data indicate that a nuclear attack has been conducted against Russia, the system launches special missiles that send launch signals to all surviving nuclear missile complexes. Subsequently, retaliatory nuclear missiles are launched even without human input.

Burbin emphasized that the rearmament of the SMF was going on as planned. He added that 98% of Russia’s nuclear deterrent forces will be armed with new weapons by 2020. Last month, Russia conducted nationwide war games involving 30 missile regiments. On any given day, more than 6,000 servicemen maintain the readiness of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces.

Burbin’s statement aimed at NATO?

Burbin’s statement comes as NATO continues to boost its military presence near Russia borders. Last year, NATO conducted more than 200 military exercises, and a senior NATO official promised that such exercises would continue. Last week, U.S. forces and military combat vehicles paraded in the Estonian city of Narva, just 300 yards from Russia border.

Russia has repeatedly condemned NATO’s aggressive military buildup and exercises towards its borders. Relations between the U.S. and Russia touched the lowest point since Cold War after the annexation of Crimea into Russian Federation.

    The dirty scum sucking russians are hopelessly infected with marxism.We gave them a chance to abandon it entirely and they resisted.It’s my opinion that we will never be truly safe until the russian scum are broken beneath our feet.War with them is inevitable and so long as they are completely destroyed it would be worth it too us…even if our losses be horrendous.A future free from even the smallest russian presence is a beautiful future for our Great Republic.Those swine are Carthage and we Rome.carthage must burn.

    Russia punished its self.

    Because people loosing the trust will take their business somewhere else. All that are outside Russia took time to invest there, now that they feel Russia is not to be trusted they will close their businesses in Russia.

    And Putin saying that he will use nukes over Cremea is another example of their betrayal.

    This is serous.

  • Steve James

    Its one thing to threaten the use of a nuke, but it’s another thing to actually use a nuke (USA twice). So it’s foolishness for the USA or Americans to cry foul for Russia building it’s defense despite its the USA that has wasted over trillions on their own defense.

    That depends on who’s perspective you are taking,my belief is that the ouster of Yononivtich wrong spelling…was orchestrated by the west because the former leader decided to lean towards Russia it was only then when he was ousted perhaps even by our CIA who knows for sure but it is a possibility to limit Putins influence these things have happened in other places,if Ukraine goes NATO which it probably won’t now Russia would have been cornered and would be looking at a Nuclear Shield on his borders so as a leader who has entirely different ideologies how could he allow that to happen and still call himself a leader,this isn’t about patriotism it is about reach or geopolitics.

This kind of rhetoric only serves an internal propaganda agenda, nothing more. Know this: there’s not such thing as ‘more dead’ or ‘less dead’ — Dead is dead!

  • samueljacob

    US is foolish. US is cowardly. When Russia threatened to retaliate US and NATO did nothing over Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. Because they don’t have the ability to face Russia in war. Now if Russia increases its nuke capability and threatens US and NATO will simply surrender because they have no guts to fight. Yet they speak like they are capable. NATO in fact lacks commitment, resolve unity and ability to take any independent decision. Their plan and decisions will not be approved by the government in time. Due to budget restrictions they end up with plans that are all craps and full of holes. Russia has prepared to defend accurate and fast missiles that only destroy a small area. These nukes do no harm to anyone if they are successfully destroyed by missiles. If Russia fires nukes that could destroy whole US then even if it is defended near US border it will destroy their country. Accept the fact that you have become vulnerable and defeatable by Russia. Accept defeat.

    Read it here first. The US will not be attempting a First Strike Nuclear Attack into Russia. If this is happening then the world as we know it is coming to an end and shame on us the Human Race for letting it happen. This is regardless of what Russia says they can do in this article. The Fallout of Nuclear bomb does not stay where it lands and will pollute the world regardless of who launched the weapon. I think you will find the US approach has been to create technologically advanced conventional weapons that are more accurate and efficient, not Nukes with a bigger explosion radius.

    I see quite a few posts about how great it is that “Mother Russia” can defend itself and that America would be insane to attack. Are you people stupid? You think because Pukin says so that it’s true? Governments have been blowing smoke up each others (and their citizens) a$ses from day one. It makes the masses feel better THINKING that they would or could survive a nuclear war. If you’re not DEEP underground if / when it happens, you’ll get to experience first hand what it feel like to have your atoms spread across the universe. Heads up, if your not one of Pukin’s reach-around buddies, you WON’T be deep underground. Most of Russia’s nukes were lost when the USSR fell, consider THAT. You have nowhere near as many as your “Beloved” president would have you believe. Period. In an all out nuke war, we would completely obliterate Russia, again, PERIOD.

    Victoria “Fxxx the EU” Nuland started the recent crisis. Yugoslavia was illegally and savagely bombed by NATO to break up the nation and steal Kosovo for an American base (Camp Bondsteel). NATO is trying to do the same to Russia as it did to Yugoslavia. That’s how this is related.

    A rat can easily be killed. A simple stepping on him and smash his head is enough. No need to worry of an attack. Btw, Putin already provoked the world in response to annexing Crimea.

Estonia is looking at possible spill over of aggression with its Russian speaking citizens Moscow could manipulate to stir this same propaganda “separatist” movements to install Russian rule!

    US and NATO are never willing to discuss nuclear offensive in a battle plan until Putin annexes Crimea and invades Ukraine where NATO asleep was awakened and caught unprepared. Today NATO is calling all its members to boost individual national military budgets to start up and make itself ready… While on the other side of the river Russia is geared up ready to press on its national interest into the Baltic region. Putin even brag about its military being the most powerful today! Imagine making a fool out of himself with this statement? 700,000 active Russian forces he says is the most powerful? Who is he kidding! lol

  • al len

    Truth is actually correct with this. NATO is building a military doctrine to incorporate conventional warheads and leaves option for nuclear if need arise. This is also the reason US is withdrawing all its bases in Europe but leaving A-10’s and F-35s to operate alongside NATO’s to haunt down nuclear installations and mobile launchers deep into Russia’s vast western hemisphere.

  • al len

    J.C.
    Capability is what we’re looking at here. Nation’s available resources and technology that can outsmart and out performed the other. Russia’s 70 Topol M won’t be enough. One or two or a few might, now I would count that as a possibility but not a total destruction you intend the West to suffer compare to yours.

    OK, for a simulated nuclear wargame… Put every bit of information the both sides can provide to use in this given scenario. What do Russia have to counter thousands of warhead entering its atmosphere? Or a nuclear explosion fully destroying Kremlin building followed by dozens more inside Moscow to a total chaos. This same story is heard all over Russia’s cities and military bases. Then followed by hundreds of aerial raids and bombardment after Moscow is hit and is gone. No command center to guide and inform every single Russian conscripts. No coordinated centralized information, no updates but a total blackout in isolation, what can you do? You know US priority target are the functioning military network infrastructure to disable centralized command communications and leadership. Without it no one can inform the Pacific force that Moscow is gone. Then NATO enters its 1.5 million strong army, 700 fighter jets (mostly new Rafale, Typhoon and Saab fighters) hundred bombers and attack planes. On the other side in the Pacific Ocean US naval blockade ready to shoot down ICBM’s entering that space. 10 Aircraft carriers with 900 attack planes ready for sorties and aerial raids to take down what is left of Russia. Then 35,000 US marines carried in through with 11 helicopter carriers to catch and destroy remaining nuclear installations. The only hard part is to seek and destroy movable ballistic missiles all through out Russia’s territory. And I agree this can be the only big blow Russia can make against US, but all in all Russia is doomed to destruction against the West.

  • http://vgsage.com Azix

    automated systems are stupid. How do they even know who launched the attack? Could they lose control? I just hope the people in charge of the nukes have enough sense not to do what kleptocrat putin wants. Makes no sense you kill millions for some fool who’s only about exploiting Russians.

    Another thing, WHY are Russians so easy to dominate? Always on guy turns them into fools who just do what he wants. It’s sad. Russia cannot be respected while they are constantly under dictators

    Many government and political leaders believe the comments I see here. That the US can wage and win a nuclear war by launching a massive surprise 1st strike. Of course the idea is insane. One of the consequences we see here – an automated nuclear launch system. One insane idea deserves another. So the great submarines and missile defense systems touted by the insane actually threaten the world by provoking reactions like this.

    So Russia does not have Missiles capable of defending itself? How do we know our Missile will work? We have several countries that do not like us anymore and they all could gang up on us even with conventional weapons and man power so no one has yet to see if any of these Missiles actually will work as planned. We are in a war With Isis so we should not wipe them off the face of this earth?

    SM-3IIA is an existing fact moron! Look it up in Wikipedia and learn the basics before you pretend you know better! US smart move in not letting its guard down placed Burke Class destroyers to the front defense force with AEGIS system to stop and repel any nuclear attacks, moving its defense capabilities thousands of miles away from its borders and over to the Pacific Ocean. You can’t be real in saying the 30 minute window of space an ICBM needs to cross through is not its most vulnerable state. US has set to intercept ICBMs in that open space including the mid flight before entering atmosphere. S-300/400 does not have this capability, all they can take down are already incoming warheads entering Russia’s blue skies. Russia did not even considered a defense systems the way US had conceptualize. This also shows that Russia has fallen backwards down to its own trap of nuclear annihilation. 14 Ohio Class submarines possibly positioned along Russia’s shorelines with 4800 warheads waiting to fly its 6000 mile range to its targets. This comes in a short distance, something you won’t get to repel if it suddenly comes up in your radars. Russia is doomed to fail and you should know that.

    21 existing B-2 Stealth bombers Russia failed to detect during the war in Kosovo gives this chill to the whole Russian forces if US decides to carry a FIRST STRIKE mission into Russia. And this is what this article is basically trying to repel. But how? There is no way except launch every available resource for retaliation that to me is a last attempt futile suicidal act. And if B-2s manage to destroy command centers and military installations 170 Stealth F-22 fighters follows and the rest of air superiority US offers. Where in this scenario is Russia going to respond and counteract when all you have are down, no system, no radars, no connection, no leadership. This is all but suicides on the rest of Russian conscripts left alive.

    Then follows Ohio class submarines launching of 24 Trident II with 8 warheads each over a 6000 mile range. 4800 nuclear warhead to rain over Russia. Where is your assessment of survival on this First Strike scenario? I don’t think you have any idea.

  • TruthHurts

    No, you would lose…what I’m saying is that the United States is strong enough to defeat Russia without nukes whereas Russia would have to use nukes to defeat the US…I’m implying that Russia doesn’t have a strong enough military to defeat the US in a conventional war. If either side actually used nukes, then everyone loses. And by the way, America has to be all over the world projecting power to at least try to maintain some stability across the world because no one else has the means or the balls to do it. And America projects that power because we believe all humans have the right to be free. That’s the disagreement we have with other countries and societies. The United States has shown that through freedom comes prosperity and we do it better than anyone else. It would be smart of other countries to look at the United States and learn something. So, if your other way of living is through oppression, then the United States should have a problem with that as it goes against everything we as a country and society believe in. Without the United States, the world crumbles…And as history has shown, if Russia crumbles, there’s little to no impact to the world. and that’s the truth so maybe you should think a little before you speak…..

    First of all there is nobody in Washington that is fascist. Care to define what do fascism mean?

    “A governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism”.

    At this very moment Obama has no control over the Congress that right now is controlled by the Republicans. Meaning? Fascism can’t effect with two differing forces or power! All Obama can do is veto any approved bills Congress throws at him and his executive orders will be challenged by courts and SC..How can fascism exist on this democratic system?

    The fact that you have no idea how US government works is evidence you’re no American.

    And for a fact that it is actually Putin who is the best example of fascist regime today controlling Russia’s media and Congress on his own, and recently assassinates silencing the opposition leader shows Russia is the very fascist you’re accusing America of right now! HYPOCRITE.

    Truth, if you used conventional weapons and your adversary used Nuclear weapons, do you believe that you would have the advantage or do you believe that your adversary would have the advantage? Do you believe that after the nuclear smoke clears that more would be alive on your side of that more would be alive on the side of your adversary. Many aircraft carriers means that country is trying to project power, millitary power, in places far from its borders. One aircraft carrier would suggest that world domination in not the main focus of that country. Russia gave up on the Warsaw pact. That would suggest that Russia is not interested in controlling the countries of the Warsaw Pact. America is all over the world trying to tell other people how to live and if they have another way that they want to live, America sends its aircraft carriers. Maybe you should think a little before you speak.

    How can you repel a stealth bomber able to penetrate your defenses, bomb your command center and eradicate your capabilities in one single strike? 21 B-2s Russia could not detect? Followed by 170 F-22s with same stealth readiness to infiltrate and destroy installations, radars, batteries and nuclear stations! Along with 14 Ohio class Trident missile submarines with its 4800 warheads waiting along Russia’s shoreline! Maybe you need to realize that US missiles defense system are stationed along Oceans. US Navy Burke Class destroyers carrying SM-3 missiles are capable of shooting down TOPOL Ms. 120 missiles installed to 63 naval destroyers, and this number will continue to rise as more SM-3IIs are being delivered to the Navy, and another 30 more Burke Class are expected to add to the list of naval missile defense system.

You think your country can return to its old Soviet glory without dying for it? Your nuclear rhetoric is a sign of weakness and lack of capability. Its like a scared dog barking all day while hiding under a chair with his tail shove between his legs.

  • Spaceman Spiff

    You’re a sick and demented troll. You wouldn’t want to live after a nuclear war. Are you really stupid enough to believe life will just go on the same? Playing your video games and looking at porn all day? You deserve to be the only victim

  • al len

    What makes you think you can run away from this? lol You’re a scared delusional coward. Can’t face the inevitable. The only way this war can be stopped is if Putin is removed from office. Coward.

  • al len

    Losers always feel that way. They’re the first ones to die.

  • Spaceman Spiff

    Kill yourself and leave the rest of us alone.

  • Spaceman Spiff

    Good. We have a lot of psychopaths in DC and elsewhere, like these idiots below, who think nuclear war is winnable. To destroy Russia, even if we were to escape retaliation, we’d all die anyway.

  • donald

    Justin, you have got to be kidding. United States has nothing to compare with much of Russian Nuclear arsenal especially the one in the caption

  • donald

    Nicholi, I don’t think that Russia is planning or saying that they have the capability to stop such a nuclear strike, I think that they are saying that they are capable of making such a strike reciprocal. That is you will be just as dead as a Russian.

  • al len

    J.C.
    50%? Where’d you get your assessments? US Navy destroyers carry US missile defenses along the Pacific Ocean, that is the idea. The 30 minute open space travel of Russia’s ICBM is the very deterrent US uses to them shoot down. Remember the satellite that a US Navy took down in 2009? That is a demonstration of its capability. The Burke Class destroyers carry SM-3IIs that is the very answer to TOPOL M. How much more the old Satans that are Soviet old? I don’t think you have any clue.

    Look at the whole picture in a military strategy bird’s eye view and you’ll see that Russia is pushed into a corner with nothing left but a Kamikaze counter attack effort after it is blocked from all sides, isolated and vulnerable.

    BTW, China is not have much of a help when this ever happens.

  • J. C.

    no, how come ours looks like theirs? Are you aware that many of our weapon systems are copies of Russian systems? I remember when we stole a T72 in order to reverse engineer some of the features and implement them into our tanks.. Remember also that our system of stealth vehicles only exist because of Russian research and patents that we stole… this is a give and take, they steal from us, we steal from them…

  • al len

    Once barrage of multiple explosions, atomic bombs going off in Russia there will be nothing left with Moscow and the biggest loser is Russia with no working system to run this nation. There is no repelling in the side of Russia, US has the first strike capability and if you measure their first targets? It will always be the nuclear missile sites, command centers and military bases. Follows the 14 US Ohio Class ballistic missile submarines carrying 24 Trident II missiles with 8 warheads each ever ready to launch its 4800 nuclear warheads in a short distance along Russia’s shorelines. There is no repelling and running away from a total nuclear annihilation. All Russia can do is retaliate and launch its remaining functioning ballistic missile squad to send whatever is left that we know have a slim chances of reaching America. Russia is on the losing side with this kind of war and Putin knows that. NATO and US will erase Russia from the face of the Earth in a short time if this ever happens.

  • J. C.

    its called click bait

  • J. C.

    No we can’t, and there really is no planning to do so… The big cities are collateral damage…

  • J. C.

    It is not Russia that is a danger to the world, but it is the US and its fascism that is.

  • Ivan Rudenko

    The “attack” and “occupation” supposed to fix a reason for war, in first place. The “attack” alone makes things even worst. Obviously.

  • J. C.

    good luck, wanna bet that more than 50% still go through…

  • J. C.

    lol you don’t get the concept do you? They don’t give a crap how hard they hit, they have build a system that will make sure whoever attacks them will not survive either. And they have automated it so that even if we take out humans using neutron bombs, the automation will still launch and kill. A very clever system that hopefully will give our idiots in power some pause to think

  • J. C.

    There are segments within the US and NATO that believe they can win a nuclear war with Russia or China. I have news for them, NOBODY wins a nuclear war. In western military planing the big cities are nothing but collateral damage and will be sacrificed to conquer the”enemy”.. in my opinion, those folks are paranoid and mentally ill. The world better hope we don’t get one of those religious superstitious sheep into the WH that believes in the fairy tale of a rapture…because if that happen, the world can kiss its arze good bye.

  • Nicholi Bolsonovobich

    Yeah right. They couldnt repel a massive lightning quick nuke strike just as we couldnt either. All we’d have to do is launch half dozen to a dozen ICBM’s and a few are going to get through and just the same would happen to us. If someone launches a nuke strike it will be to completely end the threat and would likely be a barrage of more like a few dozen nukes at once. What else is the point of using a nuke but to end something. You think they could stop 50 nukes coming at them at once. Youre an idiot.

  • Justin Jenkins

    Translation… If Russia is turned to dust they’ll still fire their nuclear missiles so the US can shoot them down. Got it.

  • Jack Bluebird

    You are drop dead funny. As well as ignorant.

  • Jack Bluebird

    Anti ballistic systems are already deployed yet they cannot guarantee almost nothing if the real attack begins. Do a little studying on the a subject and you will see how superficial they really are. .

  • Jack Bluebird

    You are quite naive if you really believe that. And even though Russia is explaining some things that actually it shouldnt it still has some aces which wont see the light of the day hidden in its sleeve. As for nuclear statement Russia is stating those as a reminder that it is very capable worldwide to defend itself and its interests.

  • pcrv58

    Russia’s leaders have always enjoyed the bullying Soviet Union style. The west even gave aid to Russia for a while when the Soviet Union fell to help it adjust, but corruption and that trouble making mentality of its leaders always pervailed. It really is a shame that Russia hasn’t worked for the better of the world instead of supporting thugs and despots. This says what Russia’s corrupt leaders really want to keep the few rich and the majority of Russians poor. It is a failed formula that those in twisted Russian power enjoy. Russia has more land than anybody and it always has been and always will be mis-managed and what could be a great country will continue to be a tragedy.

  • chad

    That means they could also DELIVER a first surprise lighting strike . The key is could we defend and protect American people or just the military and politicians would survive in tax paid shelters !

  • Nick

    We in the USA are no better, we waist our tax money to defend Europe who has more people and larger GDP than us, and instead we are letting our country infrastructure fall apart not maintaing roads, ports, power or gas lines, water and sewer systems need major work.

    the western sanctions did nothing to the Russian economy. it is the low price of oil that affects the Rubble. any way the west is foolish to expect a country as big and powerful as Russian to succumb to what they call “sanction”, …meaningless.

    Russia seems to forget that the United States wouldn’t need to use nuclear weapons to defeat Russia;however, Russia would need to use nuclear weapons to defeat the United States.Russia has one little aircraft carrier which means they have no ability to wage
    war anywhere other than their homeland. The United States on the other hand can
    operate anywhere anytime. That’s the kind of power Russia only wishes it possessed.

    I know we all laugh at the collapse of the Ruble but we also know that Putin could fix it by capitulating in Ukraine and having the sanctions lifted,so what we do know that isn’t so laughable is that even though he is suffering economically he still maintains the popularity that any politician anywhere would love and things may not be as bad as has been reported and what does his standard of living have to do with us really nothing.

  • denniscerasoli

    I think that it serves everyone well if you notice that he didn’t make any threats what he said was he was prepared and able to retaliate from a 1st strike.

  • jblvcegda

    Russia will be overwhelmed in seconds. They have no idea what awaits them!

  • denniscerasoli

    I don’t think that Swift will do that and the west is convinced of Putins determination on keeping NATO out of Ukraine if you think that Putin is a rat then it would be unwise to corner a rat because that provokes an attack.

    I would suggest that you tell that to the Europeans as they consider Russia being its neighbor more important then America it is in their interests to maintain a stable Russia.You will have to research that to see for yourself.

  • Helorider

    Given that the Russians use a sensor system to determine seismic and radioactivity inputs all that is needed for some crazy nations is to throw a nuke on Russian Territory to ignite an automatic reaction toward countries that have not had anything to do with anything. Lovely. The Russians are true wingnuts and they are proud of it.

  • jblvcegda

    And exactly who is going to perform a lighting nuclear strike on Russia? Nobody wants anything to so with Russia. It’a a pariah. Russia has nothing anybody wants. It would be more trouble than it’s worth. Who but Russia has the need to place some kind of value on itself.

  • HimThatsNot Him

Can you imagine the increased economic pain will do to the dictatorship spy state!!! So really, the Western powers have been somewhat soft and considerate with the kremlin…this, with due consideration for the Russian people who are feeling the brunt of the sanctions! The dictatorship better stop bubbling about nukes, and being preoccupied with nukes, and start DIVERSIFYING THE ECONOMY so that the people can shore up another more severe economic episode in their history! The nukes are NOT the ANSWER to the dictatorship’s PARANOID mentality! The diversification of the Russian ECONOMY is the ANSWER! The millions of Orthodox Christian people should PRAY TO GOD for their future–not let a dictatorship run their country again, and no Iron Curtain to fall upon them!

  • A. Ianosel

    Very Interesting….please explain. It’s a venue no one has ever heard before. Thank you.

  • ExtremeRC

    That is simple common sense. But what is not normal is Russia’s continual threats of nuclear use, which is inherently dangerous.

  • Yang Ed Wren Nu

    So how is Russia repelling a “lightning speed” drop in their ruble’s value and economy?

  • Samuel

    It does not take a military expert to understand that any attack can quickly escalate into a nuclear conflict. If either side of the conflict for instance senses that they are being militarily overwhelmed, or if real (or anticipated) human and material costs are high in a conventional confrontation between nuclear powers, one party may be easily tempted to opt for a nuclear strike. Not speaking about nuclear strikes does not mean that Nato is not considering these options. This is why playing macho, the support of and working up tensions is so dangerous.

    So what if someone else like China or Iran launched on Russia? if the Deadhand systems launch what is left in the silos i doubt it is capable of changing their targeting parameters, the missiles will go where they were programmed to beforehand, AKA, The U.S. won’t they?

    So not only will you have to deal with nukes from whoever attacked you in the first place, but your automatic retaliatory launch system just started a nuclear war with people who might not have even been in it in the first place, i don’t think your surviving population will really appreciate that.

    I could be wrong though.

Why bring space into this at all? Why did they give you internet access so soon after the cryogenic revival and before orientation? The project manager needs a talking to. Heads up: it’s not OK to light up a cigarette in an airplane anymore.

    Russia wont do anything to us. Area 51 has a international obliteration system that launches ICBMs from the moon which was planted during our first mission to the moon Every Apollo launch was the CIA bringing top secret equipment to the moon to deploy a Nuclear Ballistic Missile system capable of infinite range. The system is also capable of placing a shield that will negate any incoming missile or enemy plane or object from coming into the United states atmosphere. The systems nuclear ICBM has a Blast radius of 500 miles and has a yield of 100 Megatons of TNT.

    He’s only passing on what he learned in Putin’s University School of Lying.

  • Strawmanski

    Smarter than what? Than making sure they get their revenge even if wiped out by sudden attack? What’s stupid about that? Or did you read some alternative reality article where this was all about Putin saying he will launch a nuclear war on someone? Pray tell how you manage this shift between dimensions. Science will be grateful.

  • Carrie Barber

    Right, Putin and Russia are the earth Satan’s.

    if you would n’t be a shipple and do a little research instead of just blatantly believe “free and independent” US/western media you would know that RT is more objective than CNN, NBC, FOX and BBC put together

    will you stop the fear tactic Pustin you are a little man with little man syndrom

  • The western values is a trash and its widely accepted in Russia & China. The evil propel US american would be the 1st one on this planet to launch a nuclear attack hoping to level off from its current disadvantages and would do whatever necessary to destroy in thinking that they will win or the last species to survive on earth. The Satan is here to stay and will tell the world what to do and what not unless it is fully defeated.

  • rock rock

    I thought Russians where smarter than that. They can not survive a global nuclear attack under any circumstances.

  • The Anti Troll

    There is an international treaty preventing weapon systems being deployed in earth’s orbit.

    If their “dead hand” glitches, our entire country ceases to exist. Afterward, American submarines will launch SLBMs. At that point, their entire country ceases to exist. Most likely, all humanity will cease to exist. It’s insanity.

  • TheVisper291 .

    The Russian leadership have turned in to complete idiots. It’s time for them to haul in the slack and start trying to act normal and stop their bulling , in the end they will be the big loser’s. Kremlin it’s time to go back to school ,just now you’re nothing but political amateurs.

  • THEORIGINALEXSCAPER .

    Ronald Reagan asked Gorbachev if he really believed the US would attack the USSR unprovoked. Gorbie said yes he did. Reagan was taken aback. It took decades of military buildup, treaties, and decreases to get where we are today. The difference today is Putin KNOWS the US would never attack Russia unprovoked. I’m uncertain we can count on Putin to instill confidence in us that Russia would not do the same.

    There is nothing pathetic in “puffing” about ones nukes, as they are real and menacing and are serving as strategic deterrents. The problem we face is that no human on planet earth has felt the raw power of a nuclear strike and live to tell the tale, which is why we are playing Russian-roulette with the bear out of gross disrespect. We are paranoid about Iran possessing just ONE nuke, but yet we are dealing with Russia as if it is a third world military. We are really a dumb specie!

  • Plaster

    Don’t be ignorant. All options are on the table wouldn’t you think? Just because there’s no talk about it doesn’t mean anything.

  • Thomas Lee

    h#ll yeah. put up or shut up. you can only shack a dogs chain so many times before he attacks

    if their “dead hand” glitches, their entire country ceases to exist. Foolish gamble if you ask me.

  • Danny More

    And don’t think that the USSR is telling everything. . They have more then you think. And yes that can reach us here in the USA.. Just look up about 200 miles are so. They have stuff up in space. Ready to go. Just like we do…
    And if this ever does go down. The winner will be none!

  • Potarick

    The problem with the nuclear gospel is that nations that are preaching the second-strike doctrines are probably the ones that are going to strike first. But then again, in a nuclear war every strike is considered a first strike!

  • Danny More

    You don’t know how lucky you are. Your back in the USSR..

  • Don D.

    the way I see it they understand that the US is the only country that has ever used nukes on anyone and we will not hesitate to obliterate anyone that wants to use any on us. they can talk all the smack that they want but we are still the big dog on the block and we still have sharp teeth

  • what?

    Say what so that idiot Hitler lets just say you have a nuclear leak somewhere and your so call system thinks there is a bomb that went of on false pretense you can send out nuclear missiles??? How stupid is Hitler Pootin!!! This guy is worse than Hitler he kills people who comes against him and he scares his people if the challenge him. A nut case!! I call him Rootin Tootin Hitler Pootin!!! Horrible man. Just horrible!!

    It seems the only thing russia can talk about are it’s nuclear weapons these days. No other country is ignorant enough to keep puffing about their nuclear capabilities. So painfully pathetic…

  • Robby Tankersley

    i agree lets stop the singing and start the swinging

  • susanna_p

    The funny part is that all this technology that Russia and China have was stolen during years of espionage from US and Europe. This is a rule in every communist state, to steal as much as they can from the West, so they avoid spending money on research and technological development of their own. All they do is modify a bit, change the name, and voila, they have great weapons! …To threaten the people they stole those from…

  • Andy Bogandis

    LOL. Your missiles could be blown up over your own soil, maybe you need to look up the definition of superpower.

  • Erwin Tipton

    Who is going to attack Russia?. The US wont Nuke Russia unless they pull the first strike .And even if they did ,None of their nukes would make it to the US because the US Tech is 50 years more advanced . Even one nuclear strike on either side No one wins because of the radiation fall out .

  • Andy Denver

    this is why an anti ballistic missile system is a requirement. there is no guarantee that nuclear weapons will be in the control of a sane calm leader. there is already an arms race so another front isn’t a big deal, but there is no question that some dangerous leaders have access to nuclear weapons and there will be more as time goes by. Not the mention the resulting arms race will favor the technologically advanced nations more.

  • CharlesD

    Well, there really isn’t much news what they report on defensive weapons. I would be more worried about offensive weapons which I suspect are rather limited in Russia.

  • C. D. Carney

    *sigh* Who keeps talking about using nukes? Russia. China. North Korea. Who isn’t talking about nuking everyone? America. Europe. South Korea. So, why are all these countries constantly talking about nuking everyone in the world, how they can stand up to the world with their nukes, how they can defend against everyone’s nukes, etc etc? Ok, now why in the bleeping bleep are Russia China and NK telling the world they’re ready to start nuking all the time? That’s pretty much an indictment on who the problem is.

  • sraysr

    More bulls**t from Russian news.
    The Russians have no such capability period. :o)
    RUSSIAN TV News Flash Putin can shoot bolts of lightening out of his butt that can down any Western Nuke. :o)
    That is more credible than vikas shulka’s bulls**t post. :o)

  • William Stovall

    Why don’t they just launch them and get it over with. Come on lets do this!

  • lamarlamar

    BS!!!

  • Concerto_in_C

    Nuclear weapons is the only aspect of managing the country where Russia remains competitive with the rest of the world. Otherwise it’s a country so corrupt and stagnated it’s probably impossible to reform to make it modern enough to compete with the rest of Europe.
