Glory to the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces, Admiral Charles Richard, speaking at the hearings in the US Senate Committee on Armed Forces, said that the creation of the latest weapons in Russia could seriously change the nature of this country’s nuclear forces.

Of particular concern to Richaod was Russian weapons such as the Burevestnik strategic complex, the Avangard missile system with a gliding cruise warhead, the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile, and the Poseidon unmanned underwater vehicle.

“The modernization carried out by Russia … threatens to change the nature of Russia’s nuclear forces with an asymmetric potential of strategic weapons that have never been used before,” the admiral said.
