As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues its inevitable turn toward failure, the Kremlin has been lashing out at the world at large, hoping to maintain some of the false respect that they once coveted on the world’s stage.
Their military has been proven inept in Ukraine, with morale now low enough that mutinies have begun to pop up among the 300,000 forcefully conscripted citizens who’ve been sent to the front lines as cannon fodder, arriving in Soviet-era tanks and armed with rusty AK-47’s.
And so, in an effort to remain somewhere near the upper half of the global pecking order, the Kremlin is moving some heavy duty weaponry into striking distance of other global superpowers…including the USA.
A RUSSIAN warship armed with “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles is sailing towards the US coast in a show of strength, reports claim.
The guided missile frigate Admiral Gorshkov has been closely monitored by Nato navies on its maiden voyage armed with 6,670mph Zircon weapons.
The news was spooky, to say the least.
An unconfirmed Russian Telegram channel report says it was “spotted on radar in neutral waters of the Atlantic Ocean – at an effective salvo launch distance from the US coast”.
The nuclear-capable Mach 9 missiles have a reported range of 625 miles.
The Russian defence ministry has not commented on the latest report.
It comes after the Royal Navy intercepted the Gorshkov as it sailed through the English Channel earlier this month.
More recently the Russian vessel was tailed by the Portuguese navy in the Atlantic and was expected to sail round Africa.
But the ship surprised followers by diverting back toward the United States, just as Putin’s cronies began ramping up their angst-ridden, anti-American rhetoric.
