"No one has listened to us", he said. Nobody listened to us.

News reporter and Today Show anchor Megyn Kelly has scored her second interview with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

The military alliance will continue using its armed forces to deter aggression, said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spokeswoman Oana Lungescu.

An underwater drone armed with a nuclear warhead powerful enough to sweep away coastal facilities and aircraft carriers.

Putin said the US should send Russia's general prosecutor an official request, instead of using alleged propaganda to attack the Kremlin.

The high-speed underwater drone also has an "intercontinental" range and is capable of slamming a nuclear warhead into both aircraft carriers and coastal facilities, he said.

Other observers are skeptical about Russia's supposed new arsenal, because Moscow has not shown proof of successful tests.

"Vladimir Putin made a presentation, touting his country's weapons capability, saying they're able to evade USA defenses", Witt began. "It's not a bluff, trust me".

The Pentagon has not publicly talked about the nuclear-powered cruise missile mentioned by Putin.

Kylie Jenner gives us another glimpse of 'angel baby' Stormi
And after months of speculation the buxom beauty was expecting her first child, Kylie announced she had given birth last month. In a series of shaky Instagram moments, Kylie proudly boasted "one month" as she focused in on her toned tummy and shape.

And naming the stealth atomic-powered cruise missile after a Russian folk musical instrument tapped into a long Russian tradition of giving innocuous names to some of the deadliest weapons.

"No one in the world has anything like that", he added. "We're not surprised. These weapons that are discussed have been in development a very long time".

Putin encouraged a naming contest for the missile during his speech, saying "Those interested in military equipment are welcome to suggest a name for this new weaponry".

The hypersonic vehicle "flies at a speed 20 times the speed of sound. and it can maneuver thousands of kilometers up and down and right to left", Putin said, gesticulating energetically.

NBC News' Megyn Kelly will have more reporting from Russian Federation in the coming days.

"The collapse of the Soviet Union", Putin immediately said.

Fully operational? Apparently. Putin said the system - called Kinzhal, or Dagger - had successfully completed testing and had been deployed operationally beginning on December 1 at the airfields of Russia's Southern Military District.

The US on Thursday accused Moscow of openly breaching Cold War-era treaties by developing what Putin called a new generation of "invincible" hypersonic weapons and submarines.
