Putin vows 'symmetric response' to US missile test

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he has ordered the military to prepare a "symmetric response" after Washington tested a formerly banned missile.

Putin said he had ordered an analysis of "the level of threat for our country created by the actions of the US and to take comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetric response."
The US Department of Defense said Monday it had tested a type of ground-launched missile that was banned under the 1987 INF agreement, which limited the use of nuclear and conventional medium-range weapons.

Well now, that begs the question, what will Putin pop out of his current arsenal?

And since the INF treaty was formally ended on Aug 2 of this year, 2019 it really makes one wonder.

Because his newest nuclear powered missile that carried who knows what kind of blew up in his face the other week Friday the 9th of August to be exact. Big mushroom cloud over the R&D spot off the Arctic coast line at Arkhangelsk. People died, radioactivity spiked, the cloud was detectable by nearby countries.

Errrmmm I guess he built it in 7 whole days. Must be why it blew. He was forced to build it because of America pulling out of the INF. In 7 days.

And a little before that July 1, 2019 one of their nuclear sub undersea type research vessels had a little nuclear problem on board that killed several personnel, that spewed radiation onto Norway's Arctic coast, and the Russians had to quickly tow their nuclear disaster site back to the Northern Fleet HQ at Severomorsk which is on the Barents Sea just next to the Arctic coast of Norway. The Norwegians were understandably annoyed.

Going back a little further and there were some problems with Russia's anti missile defense systems that were sold to Syria which the Syrians used to accidentally shoot the Russians down with. Sales of that system suffered.

Putin's projects don't seem to be doing too well lately so it may be interesting to watch for more unexpected mushroom clouds off their other bases to find out what he is up to in his promise to provide a symmetric response.
