President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that Russia was not going to fight anyone, but it created relevant conditions, so that nobody wanted to fight against it. He said this in an interview with TASS.
"We are not going to fight anyone, but we are creating such a situation in the field of defense, so that no one thinks of fighting us," Putin said.
In addition, the president believes that Russia has ceased being a catch-up state in the field of defense.
“For the first time, we have created such offensive weapons systems that have not analogies in the world. Now they (other countries – 112 International.) are catching up with us. This is a unique situation, it has never been like that," he said.
As we reported earlier, Russia's Northern Fleet continues testing the latest hypersonic weapons.
"The testing of new weapons, including hypersonic ones, is ongoing. All this will allow increasing the combat potential of the Northern Fleet and other fleets of the Russian Navy qualitatively," Russia's Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu stated.
