Russia will show 'Putin’s missile' at Victory Day parade

During the Victory Day parade in Moscow, the Russian Defense Ministry will showcase the latest hypersonic Kinzhal missile system, which Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted about when speaking to the Federal Assembly.

“Aside from the modern Su-57, Su-Z0SM and MiG-29SMT aircraft, the upgraded MiG-31K, equipped with the latest hypersonic Kinzhal missile system, will take part in the ceremonies during the holiday,” said Defense Minister of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergey Shoygu, on a conference call.

He also said that prototype weapons and military equipment will, as usual, be in the military parade: Tor-M2 surface-to-air missile systems, Terminator combat vehicles, Uran-6 and Uran-9 robotic systems, modern drones, army ATVs, and snowmobiles.

During a speech on March 1, Putin said that the missile flies more than ten times faster than the speed of sound, so it is not threatened by any missile defense or air defense.
