In a tweet, Russia warns US over hypersonic missiles in Europe | The tweet comes as the U.S. reportedly turned its attention away from a railgun to hypersonic technology.
“We would like to remind Pentagon Press Sec that potential deployment of any [American flag] hypersonic [missile] in Europe would be extremely destabilizing.
- “We’re certainly aware of President Putin’s claims,” Kirby said, according to a transcript from his press conference. “And while I won’t be getting into specifics or providing any kind of an analysis on his claims, it’s important to note that Russia’s new hypersonic missiles are potentially destabilizing and pose significant risks because they are nuclear-capable systems.”
- Kirby said the U.S. is working “closely with allies and partners, including NATO, to try to check those destabilizing activities.”
