  • Putin Goes Nuclear

Her comments came hours after President Putin announced that Russia has developed a number of advanced weapons systems, including a nuclear-powered cruise missile, which make all USA capabilities aimed at undermining the Russian nuclear deterrent obsolete. "We're not surprised. These weapons that are discussed have been in development a very long time".

Putin, speaking ahead of an election on March 18 that polls indicate he should win easily, said in his speech that new Russian technology would render such defences "ineffective".

Putin's speech has further exacerbated tensions with the U.S., which have hit Cold War-era highs over conflict in Syria and Ukraine as well as accusations Moscow interfered in the United States 2016 election.

Trump did not mention the video or Russia's new missiles in several early morning tweets that took aim variously at actor Alec Baldwin and criticism of the president's decision to enact sharp tariffs on steel and aluminum Thursday.

Former recruiter sues Google, says white and Asian candidates were 'purged'
California labor law prohibits refusing to hire employees based on characteristics like race or gender. The lawsuit suggests that some of Google's efforts were clumsy, and may have been counterproductive.

"Russia is not going to attack anyone, and these weapons do not present a danger to anyone who is not hatching plans to attack our country", he said.

"I want to tell all those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years, sought to win unilateral advantages over Russian Federation, introduced unlawful restrictions and sanctions aimed to contain our country's development: All what you wanted to impede with your policies has now happened", he said.

"I have to see first what they've done".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated the theme, pointing to America's massive military budget, as well as US President Donald Trump's own nuclear doctrine.

Cristiano Ronaldo nets 300th La Liga goal for Real Madrid
Ronaldo made a pair of nice moves to clear defenders inside the area in first-half injury time for his first. The striker caught Nacho round the neck with an outstretched arm and was given a second yellow card.

"All Allies support arms control agreements which build trust and confidence, for everyone's benefit", North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said in a statement.

Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of trying to influence the election of the American President in 2016.

As the weapon name contest went on, Russian officials and lawmakers insisted that Putin's speech wasn't an announcement of a new arms race but a warning to Washington to treat Russia as an equal partner.

"It was certainly unfortunate to have watched the video animation that depicted a nuclear attack on the United States", she said.

Tori Spelling Returns Home Following A Nervous Breakdown
Tori has five children with Dean - Liam, 10, Stella, nine, Hattie, six, five-year-old Finn and Beau, who turns one on Friday. The New York Post reports that Spelling did not have a weapon, but behaved aggressively before the police got there.

"Both sides call on the Syrian regime and its Russian and Iranian allies to immediately and fully implement UN Security Council Resolution 2401", Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a written statement.
