Russia to receive hypersonic Zircon missiles in 2022



Russian President Vladimir Putin says his country’s hypersonic missiles will be delivered by next year

Tests of Russia’s Zircon hypersonic cruise missile are nearing completion and deliveries to the navy will begin in 2022, President Vladimir Putin has said.

The move announced on Wednesday is part of a bid by Moscow to forge ahead in a race with the United States and others to deploy the next generation of long-range weapons that are harder to detect and intercept.

Putin’s remarks come a month after Russia’s defence ministry said it successfully tested a hypersonic missile for the first time. 

He confirmed the missile hit both ground and sea targets when fired from underwater, or surface ships.

Putin said quote “especially important to develop and implement the technologies necessary to create new hypersonic weapons systems.”

The Zircon missile is meant to arm cruisers, and submarines in Russia.

Moscow said that tests would be completed by the end of the year and before the missiles are commissioned by the navy in 2022.

Other nations are also racing to develop hypersonic weapons, which fly in the atmosphere at more than five times the speed of sound.

Donald Trump indicted over hush money payment to Stormy Daniels



Donald Trump has become the first former U.S. President to be indicted as he makes another run for the White House

Donald Trump has been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury following a probe into hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.

The probe was led by Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, which could change the 2024 presidential race.

It means Donald Trump becomes the first former U.S. President to be criminally charged.

It is unclear what the specific charges are, however, the indictment will likely be announced in the coming days, according to the New York Times.

The former president will then have to travel to Manhattan for fingerprinting and other processing.

Taylor Budowich, is the CEO of Make America Great Again, who said there was no crime committed.

“This is not an indictment of a crime—there was no crime—instead, this news is the indictment of a failed nation.

“He will be re-elected in the greatest landslide in American history, and together we will all Make America Great Again.”

If he is convicted, Trump could face significant fines and possibly jail time.

The payment stems from a Trump Organisation reimbursement to Trump’s then-lawyer Michael Cohen.

He paid Daniels to keep her quiet about an alleged sexual encounter she allegedly had with Trump in 2006.

Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance law violations in 2018. He testified Trump directed him to make the payments and was sentenced to three years in prison.

“For the first time in our Country’s history, a President (current or former) of the United States has been indicted. I take no pride in issuing this statement and wish to also remind everyone of the presumption of innocence; as provided by the due process clause,” Cohen told NBC News.

Trump has previously said he would continue campaigning for the Republican Party’s nomination if he was charged with a crime.
