Speaking to a forum in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin announces that Russia is set to unveil its completion of new hypersonic missiles capable of travelling at Mach 9 speeds. Putin stated that "We have now tested, and successfully, and from the beginning of the year we will be armed with new sea-based hypersonic missiles, mach 9 [speed],"

  • "Things have come to the point that anti-missile defenсe systems are deployed in Poland and Romania[...]. But this also creates threats for us. Well, this is the obvious fact, the obvious thing. Despite all of our requests not to do this, what has happened? What we see now. In response, we have been forced, I want to emphasise this, we have been forced to start developing hypersonic weapons. This is our response."
  • Putin also offers a vague comment on whether he intends to run for president again in 2024, stating that "I have the right to stand for reelection, for a new term, but I haven't decided if I will."
  • State-owned Sputnik stating that Biden and Putin are preparing for a summit next month, but this is not confirmed.
