Russians Send a Warship Armed with Hypersonic Missiles to the Atlantic, Mediterranean


The Russian navy frigate ‘Admiral Gorshkov’ is the first warship carrying Zircon hypersonic cruise missiles to begin routine combat service, reports RT.

Russian President Vladimir Putin oversaw the ceremony on Wednesday, stating that the Zircon missile was a “unique weapon” and that “no other country has anything comparable.”

“I am sure that such a powerful armament will allow us to defend Russia from potential foreign threats steadfastly. It will help maintain our country’s national interests,” Putin stated.

That’s a message to the EU and US.

According to Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, the frigate will conduct “a voyage in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea.”

“A ship fitted with Zircons is capable of carrying out high-precision and powerful strikes on the enemy at sea and on land,” Shoigu said. “The unique feature of Zircon hypersonic missiles is their guaranteed ability to bypass any existing or prospective air defense systems.”

Shoigu added that the missiles have a range of more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles).

Democrats stole the 2020 election, then gifted 80 Billion dollars of military equipment to afghanistan, have opened the border to illegals and criminals, and now are about to cause world war three.

But white supremacists are the main threat…yeah right !

Maybe if the US didn’t have 800 bases around the world and didn’t put offensive missiles in Eastern Europe, right on Russia’s doorstep, maybe we wouldn’t be here today, in a new, enhanced and more dangerous arms race. Couple that with the renewed talk of destroying Russia, MAD is now dead.

How many are aware there were plans going back 70 years to invade Russia and breaking it up into regional areas. It can appear that Ukraine is the first step in that accomplishment. Any country that believes it faces annihilation will certainly take every measure to prevent it, no doubt including a nuclear option. The West has eliminated the concept of “deterrents”. Without any deterrent, the deadliest option is on the table.

Except the United States. It’s politicians are using tax payer dollars to destroy it from within!
