US has no protection against Russian nuclear weapons: US senator

The US has no defense against Russia's cruise missiles or nuclear submarine drones, US Senator Roger Wickers said March 9 at a US congressional hearing.

Vickers noted that Russia has developed a new type of nuclear weapons. According to him, these new weapons are different from anything in the US arsenal. He clarified what he meant by transoceanic nuclear-powered autonomous torpedoes and intercontinental cruise missiles.

“This is a weapon against which we have no defense,” Vickers said.

According to Wickers, the situation with the nuclear arsenal in Russia is much better than in the United States. He noted that Russia has a larger and more modern nuclear arsenal. In addition, she is able to increase it in a short time.

Wickers called Russia a "serious nuclear threat" to the US.
