​​Russia is world leader in high-tech weapons – Putin

Moscow is leading the rest of the world in the development of advanced weapons of war, surpassing Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed, arguing that his country is out in first place in a new arms race.

In a new documentary film, ‘Recent History’, which aired on Russian TV on Sunday, Putin remarked that Russia has approximate nuclear “parity with the United States both in carriers and in the number of warheads, but still, in our promising developments, we are undoubtedly the leaders.”

“We are not just modernizing the capabilities we traditionally have in weapons, we are introducing new systems,” the president continued. While he acknowledged that other states will one day possess the same armaments that his country has, Moscow “will likely have the means to counter” them at that stage.
