Mistä Helsingissä keskusteltiin

  • Suomessa metsää on 72 % pinta-alasta
    Suomessa metsää on 72 % pinta-alasta

Keskustelujen sisältö tuntuu kiinnostavan maailmalla, Trumpin ja Putinin kanssa olivat vain tulkit, joiden ei oleteta kertovan mitään keskustelujen sisällöstä.

Etukäteen on arvioitu ydinaseista olevan tarvetta neuvotella, Trump mainitsi asiasta lyhyesti, USAn ja Venäjän hallussa on yli 90 % ydinaseista.

Toinen asia, joka olisi amerikkalaisia tahoja huolestuttanut on superaseiden kehittely, johon olisi tarvetta hakea rajoituksia. Putin on esittänyt, että avaruus jätettäisiin demilitarisoiduksi vyöhykkeeksi.

[Putin reveals hypersonic stealth bomber that can launch nuclear attacks from SPACE and travel anywhere in the world in two hours

["No one else in the world has anything like that," Putin said. "It may appear someday, but by that time, we will develop something new." He said the nuclear-powered cruise missile, which was tested last fall, has a "practically unlimited" range, and its high speed and maneuverability allow it to pierce any missile defense. 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. Its "very big" operational depth and a speed that is many times faster than any other vessel would make it immune to being intercepted by the enemy, he added.

[Another new weapon, called Avangard, is an intercontinental hypersonic missile that would fly at 20 times the speed of sound and strike its targets "like a meteorite, like a fireball," he said. The weapon is capable of performing sharp maneuvers on its way to targets, making it "absolutely invulnerable for any missile defense system," Putin added. Robert Schmucker, a rocket scientist at the Technical University of Munich, voiced skepticism about Putin's statement, saying in an interview that building nuclear-powered cruise missiles in particular would be technically difficult and basically pointless. "Why make something complicated when you can make it easy?" he said, adding that he also doubts that Russia has succeeded in building hypersonic missiles. Tom Plant, director of proliferation and nuclear policy at the defense think-tank RUSI, also said he was not sure how much of the announcement to believe.]

["The thing that sounds mad, the nuclear-propulsion thing, is potentially feasible," he said, adding: "I think it's insane." Plant added that while "Russia already has a ton of systems that can threaten and overwhelm U.S. missile defenses," Putin's announcement reflects his country's concern that the U.S. missile shield could grow powerful enough to become a game-changer. "The Russians have a genuine worry from their perspective about where U.S. missile defense might go," Plant said. "So it totally makes sense for them to try and find ways to defeat not what it is now, but what it may become." Putin said that Russia also tested a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile, called Sarmat, which can fly over both the North and the South poles to reach any target. He said it can carry more warheads than the world's heaviest ICBM, the Soviet-designed missile known in the West as Satan.]

[To complete the list, he mentioned a smaller hypersonic missile that is already operational and has a range of more than 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a new laser weapon. Putin emphasized that the new weapons were designed in full compliance to the U.S.-Russian arms control agreements, adding that Russian military experts and diplomats would be ready to discuss new weapons systems with their U.S. counterparts. "We aren't threatening anyone, we aren't going to attack anyone, we aren't going to take anything from anyone," he said. "The growing Russian military power will guarantee global peace."]

Kyllä noita ydinaseita pitää olla takataskussa, muuten ei pääse neuvottelemaan maailman supervaltojen kanssa.
