British edition: Russia's new hypersonic weapon is capable of breaking through any defenses

40

Russia is building up its power, putting into service new hypersonic missiles capable of breaking through any defenses. Will Stewart, the author of an article for the British edition of The Sun, writes about this.


According to the author, the development of the latest Russian weapons is part of Vladimir Putin's campaign to overtake the West "in terms of firepower." To this end, the Russian military is putting into service new hypersonic missiles.

He draws attention to a new Russian development, tentatively named "Ostrota". Stewart writes that the new hypersonic missile will be significantly smaller than its predecessors and will be equipped with Tu-22M3 supersonic bombers and Su-34M front-line bombers.

In addition, Russia is completing tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile, which will enter service next year. According to the author, Putin is considering this "lethal missile" to strike American cities in the event of a nuclear conflict. In addition, submarines with Zircons will guard the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Putin also has the "terrible Avangard missile system" with a hypersonic gliding block and the "Dagger" missile, which strikes at 10 times the speed of sound.

Thus, Stewart writes, Putin has a "powerful weapon"capable of breaking through any defense. However, the Kremlin claims that these are weapons of defense, not attacks. It is hard to believe that all Russian developments in the field of hypersonic weapons are just a" deterrent ", the author sums up.

        These missiles should appear on our fighters as early as possible.
        In 2022, it is planned to start flight tests of the newest Russian small-sized hypersonic missile, developed by domestic designers as part of development work under the code "Ostrota" at the machine-building KB "Raduga" them. A. Ya. Bereznyak.


        The Ostrota hypersonic missile is designed to arm long-range Tu-22M3 missile-bombers and Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers. The planes armed with such missiles are expected to become part of the Russian non-nuclear deterrent force.

    "It is hard to believe that all Russian developments in the field of hypersonic weapons are just a" deterrent ", sums up the author." Do you have a choice? It is also difficult for us to believe that the deployment of your weapons, for example, in Romania, is for protection from North Korea or Iran.

    stage 2 - Putin cartoons

    stage 3 - "have you heard the sound under N-skom? here are the bast shoes for you. But braces and krymnash"

    stage 4 - it would be better if given to pregnant retirees and blue boys

    Stage 5 - "Russia must stop developing such weapons. We don't have such weapons!"
    stage 6 - "We also did the same, but their speed is 5 times lower." And 3 times more expensive laughing

    Will Stewart, the author of an article for the British edition of The Sun, writes about this.
    According to the author ...
    He has no convictions. This is the famous Russophobe and fake-comet Will Stewart.

    According to the report of the state news agency "Russia Today" published back in 2019, almost half of all articles in foreign media about Russia are "negative." British publications stand out in particular: their materials account for more than a third of the total number of publications on the Russian topic, and almost 40% of them are “negative,” the report says. Much of this material was written by the same author who has been working in Russia since 1992 - and simply rewrites notes from local tabloids and delivers information in the light he needs and at the right angle.

    These and hundreds of other similar articles have several things in common: each of them is a retelling of the Russian media and each has the same author. William, or Will Stewart, is the absolute record holder for the number of publications about Russia among all foreign media outlets with a bureau or correspondent in Moscow. Only on the Daily Mail website in the first half of 2019, about 220 notes were published under his signature - two for each weekday.


    And this is just one publication, and in total, Stewart writes in dozens of media: at least 43 publications are listed on his profile on the journalistic resume service MuckRack.com, from the UK to the USA and Australia.
    The websites of the four leading British tabloids - The Sun, Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and Daily Express - found more than 600 articles by William Stewart from Russia from January 1 to June 30, 2019. And these are just the major publications: articles are often duplicated in their regional versions - for example, Scottish and Irish.


    These 600 articles make up more than 10% of all "significant publications about Russia" in the British media according to the version of "Russia Today". And this is several times more than the average foreign reporter in Moscow writes: for example, under the signature of Alec Luna, registered on the Foreign Ministry's website as the chief correspondent of the Moscow bureau of the Daily Telegraph, only 76 articles were published during the same period.

    According to sources in the British media, Stewart's income should be in the tens of thousands of pounds a month. The front page of a major national newspaper in Great Britain pays a fee of up to several thousand pounds - and Stewart publishes these regularly, in addition to the usual daily articles, which are published under his name every year in the hundreds.
    There are so many of them, and they contain such shocking stories - even by the standards of British tabloids - that readers will notice.

    At the same time, the personality of Will Stewart himself is a mystery even for veterans of Moscow bureaus of foreign media. None of the interviewed correspondents who have worked in Russia for decades have seen him in person and have no idea who he is.
    “I have been working in Russia since 1993,” said Ben Aris, the former head of the Moscow bureau of the Daily Telegraph and now the founder and editor-in-chief of the English-language business publication on Eastern Europe bne IntelliNews, “and I have not seen him in all this time. ... I even suspected that these articles were written by some Russian-speaking resident of London, translating the tabloids into English. After all, even then it was clear that many of his [Will Stewart's] articles were simply retellings of the local media. "


    Moreover, they have no idea who William Stewart is, even at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation - although he is officially accredited in Russia and is designated on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as the chief of the Moscow bureau of the Daily Express newspaper. Maria Zakharova once said that she does not communicate with Stuart personally, "but the Foreign Ministry's press center knows him by the employees who draw up documents for the entry and work of foreign correspondents": "He was accredited for briefings. DIP [Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs] also responded to his inquiries. "


    Dear VO editors, I have already contacted you more than once. Please check at least a little whose articles you are linking to, how informative and reliable these sources are.
    As for the article to which this publication refers, inosmi.ru, from which all of the above is taken, warns in the headline that talking about Russian hypersonic weapons, the author is simply trying to catch fear in readers, giving the following characteristics: deadly, terrible and "penetrating any protection.

      One can argue, but I admit that listening to Yakov Kedmi is interesting and entertaining. There is something tragically truthful in his speeches, which is so stubbornly dismissed in Russia at the official level.
      Take a look (from 11:09). Shouldn't you think about the absence of a national idea? Can a strong army and superweapons save the country from hunger and empty store shelves? Yes, if toilet paper suddenly disappears (not only the one that the back cheeks sniff at) in the most ordinary "Naberezhnye Chelnovsky" or any other version, it will be replaced (???) ...

      Remember how the 90s began? Yes Yes Yes! From empty shelves and coupons. This is how it can suddenly turn around today, because we can confidently say to Russian agriculture:

        There was such - the devastation of the 90s, when food independence was really lost and I had to eat "Bush's legs".
        But first, since that time, hundreds of industrial enterprises (including agricultural ones) have been built. Do not buy milk, do not understand why, vote with a ruble. According to Kedmi, he is more of an actor than an analyst - it is in the blood of his people, he makes money by talking.
        Secondly, we are still not Bad Boys and not worthy of selling our Motherland for a barrel of jam.
