Vladimir Putin says Russia is developing nuclear weapons that no enemy can intercept

Vladimir Putin Has said, Russia is developing new nuclear weapons that are immune to enemy interception.

The Russian President said this includes a nuclear-powered cruise missile and an underwater drone.

Speaking in a state-of-the-nation speech, Mr Putin claimed the high-speed cruise missile, which was tested late last year, has an unlimited range and can penetrate any missile defence.

The high-speed underwater drone can carry a nuclear warhead and target both aircraft carriers and coastal facilities, the president also claimed.

A new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) called Sarmat is also under testing and has a range and number of warheads exceeding the capabilities of its predecessor, Mr Putin added.
