From the podium to the real battelfield
On March 18, Russia, through official representatives, recognized the use of the “hypersonic” Kinzhal missile. Two times during the conflict with Ukraine. But what is the Kinzhal? Since when does Russia have hypersonic weapons? We go back to 2018. A peaceful, everyday day dawns in Moscow. It is March 1, 2018. Only two weeks left for the next “elections” in Russia. Putin has called both chambers of parliament for the traditional annual speech (usually celebrated in December).
