Russia could have obtained missile weapons technology thanks to the leak of information from the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama, said Donald Trump. This was reported by Politicus USA on February 10.
“I can’t say how they got it. Probably from the Obama administration, and this is very bad. It’s not good,” Trump said during a meeting with the governors at the White House.
According to him, at that time the U.S. had no purpose to implement these weapons technologies.
On February 2, U.S. Navy Chief Thomas Modly said that the United States is behind Russia in the field of hypersonic weapons.
According to him, the current situation is reminiscent of the U.S. lagging behind the USSR after the launch of the first artificial Earth satellite, which took place in 1957. Modley noted that Russia’s superiority in this sphere creates conditions for the destabilization of the situation in the world and within the USA.
On December 24, 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that there is a unique situation in the world when no country except Russia has a hypersonic weapon.
