  • Putin: Hypersonic weapon makes idea of Russia’s deterrence meaningless

Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved the idea of amending the Constitution of the Russian Federation of the prohibition on alienation of Russian territory, TASS reported. Reasonable proposals that don't make the cut may be useful as basis for future laws or government policies, Putin said at the meeting.

"Given the importance of questions that we put on the all-Russian vote and the importance of those novelties which we introduce to the basic law, I believe that people should be directly involved in making this decision", Putin said at a meeting with the working group on amendments.

The Russian leader's proposed amendments were widely seen as an effort by Putin to extend his grip on power after his current presidential term ends in 2024. "It has to be a true plebiscite so that the citizens of Russian Federation acted as the authors of those changes", he said. He didn't give the date, but officials previously said the vote might take place in April. Russian opposition members condemned the reform as a "constitutional coup" and called for a rally against it on 29 February.

One committee member Yelena Isinbayeva, who holds the world record in the pole vault, admitted she had never read the constitution prior to being tapped by Putin to join the group. He is the longest-serving Russian or Soviet leader since Joseph Stalin.

"As long as I'm president, we won't have (parent number one and parent number two)". Another working group member suggested that the constitution refers to Russia's massive nuclear arsenal as a tool to deter aggression.

Putin responded that even though the nuclear weapons play a key role now, future weapons could overtake them as a top deterrent.

Putin asserted that Russia's new hypersonic weapons render the US missile shield useless "and the billions they spent on it have turned into a useless waste".

According to Putin, the missile defense system of the West aims for the neutralization of Russia's nuclear capability. The Kremlin has dismissed the assurances. He also underlined that Moscow precedes others in the level of development of advanced arms the first time ever. "So let's instruct the lawyers, ask them to formulate this in the right way".
