"Reconnaissance from space revealed the plans of Russia": the US channel about the alleged preparation for the launch of the nuclear cruise missile "Burevestnik"

19

Russia intends to resume testing one of its newest armory systems - the nuclear cruise missile "Burevestnik". According to the American media, "Russia's plans were revealed thanks to reconnaissance footage made from space."


At the disposal of the American channel CNN were satellite images, testifying, according to journalists, about the preparation of the launch, which should take place from the test site on the Pankova Zemlya peninsula of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. According to experts, traces of vigorous activity are visible here; extensive construction work has already allowed the launch site to be restored.

On condition of anonymity, two American officials told CNN that the government was allegedly aware of the work deployed by Russia and Moscow's intention to resume testing of the Burevestnik, which was suspended in 2018.

According to CNN, the new launches of the nuclear missile system will be a signal for the White House, an attempt to force the US administration to extend the treaty on the limitation of strategic offensive arms. At the same time, Russia continues to assert that its newest strike system "Petrel" does not fall under the terms of this agreement.

In this regard, it is unclear how the new launches of the Burevestnik could affect the US position. As noted by the American media, the extension of the START treaty is beneficial to the incumbent President of the United States, which intends to present this as his foreign policy victory.

        Duc, this is, like, civil photography.
        Not secret. Almost with googel maps.
        Well, or a leak. Through the hole. From NSA / CIA / Agent Donald.

    We are creating Burevestnik not for political blackmail, but as one of the last means to discourage the US from fighting against Russia.

      Oh thank you! They reminded me, and then I remembered the student's:

      On the plains of the Chernozem region, women harvest beets.
      The chairman proudly flutters between the women and the beets,
      Trouser zipper similar.
      And he screams with good language.
      There is a lot of mata, little good.
      The girls squeal under the ear ...
      They, vigorous, are not inherent
      the courage of a proud man
      Filka scares them with a mouse! ..
      The stupid cattleman timidly hides the body of the hog in the barn.
      The body does not want to hide.
      This bothers the cowboy.

    "sRussia's intentions were revealed thanks to reconnaissance footage taken from space "
    But did Russia conceal that it was testing new weapons? It was enough to listen carefully to the Russian president and not have to bother with pictures from space and present this information almost as a victory for American intelligence.

      Well, if there are no "victories", then they need to be invented. Otherwise they will say: "Why are we feeding you?"

    On the other hand, what's your business? Science does not stand still. Here, we are testing nuclear turbojet engines ... tongue how it flies, how it flies ... it may not land for months ... You have already celebrated a victory, you are holding a parade of winners, but it still flies ... somewhere. And arrives. Hi, he says, haven't you?

    Yes, the Yusovites are in their repertoire: here is a photo of a new road, here is a photo of new sheds, and in this test tube there are samples of a rocket sawn off with a file.

    Satellite photographs are not secret up to a certain resolution. And you can either buy them or get them in the public domain. But photographs with a certain resolution (about 0,5 meters) are secret. Therefore, there is nothing unusual. Moreover, such medeomonas, like CNN, usually have departments dealing with analysis in the same military field. Yes, and we have our own "war correspondents" and "military experts" on TV channels and in other media. So I'm not surprised that CNN could track this. Moreover, in case of "good relations" with such structures as the Ministry of Defense or special services, this can be an elementary channel for leaking information. When you need to slightly "mask" the source or "move the arrows" to someone else
    Therefore, it is quite possible that such information reached CNN and published on its behalf. Moreover, if there are resources, track ...
