the Stage is set for a new cold-war arms race between the americans and the russians.
Russia is on its way to developing a new supermissil with atomsprænghoved, which will be one of the most advanced ever, says president Putin.
Less than a week after the world's two largest atomsupermagter both have suspended the INF agreement (Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, ed.) promise Putin that he will reinforce russia's already large arsenal of weapons with a new supersonic missile.

24 hours followed the russians follow suit, and thus is the more than 30-year-old agreement to destroy a large number of missiles, and that both nations should have insight in each other's atomvåbenprogrammer, death.
the Agreement would eliminate the UNITED states'Nato allies, fears of missile attacks from the threat in the east, but Putin's new supersonic missile, which can fly up to 1000 kilometers, can pose a big security threat for Europe in the future.
- They are not only much faster than the previous missiles, they have developed, which makes them very hard to intercept. They also have an incredible low flight time, which makes it difficult for the defending side to react, said Michael Kofman, who is a military expert specializing in Russia by the CNA, to CNN.
A supersonic missile means that it can fly faster than the speed of sound, and Russia's new missile can according to the militæreksperten fly five times faster than the speed of sound.

- In 2019-2020, we should develop a grundbaseret version of our langdistancekrydsermissil Data, which has been shown to be effective in Syria. In the same way, we must develop long-range supersonic missiles that can be fired from the ground, tells Shoigu to the RIA according to CNBC.
Succeed the russians to further develop their Data-the missile, it brings us bases in Europe are in danger, assess the previous general Mark Hertling over for CNN.
- It can hit about six bases, including major air bases around Europe. Some of them have up to 30,000 us soldiers stationed.
The Russian president stresses, however, that he does not want Russia to be dragged into a new arms race with the americans. Instead, the development of the new supermissil act as a 'mirror against the american aggression', says.
