Russia claims it used hypersonic missiles to hit Ukrainian munitions warehouses

Putin continued to insist that many warships will soon be equipped hypersonic weapons.

“What matters is the capability of the Russian Navy,” Putin said.

Putin also pointed to NATO expansion as the biggest threat to Russia, months after Sweden and Finland formally joined the Western Alliance. Finland shares an 800-mile border with Russia, greatly expanding the potential points of friction between NATO and Russia.

Putin’s speech came on the same day a drone strike took place at the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet on Sunday. At least six people were injured after the drone dropped an unknown explosive, Russian officials said. It is unclear who was responsible for the attack.
