Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday boasted that Russia has missiles capable of penetrating any missile defense system, the ITAR-Tass and RIA-Novosti news agencies reported. "Russia last year tested missile systems that no one in the world has and won't have for a long time," the news agencies quoted him as telling a news conference. "They are hypersonic and capable of changing their flight path." Putin said he had shown the working principles of the missile systems to French President Jacques Chirac during a visit to a Russian military facility.
