"The launch was successful, the hypersonic missile hit the designated target at the field", the statement added.

A video has been released of the test, showing a MiG-31 supersonic interceptor jet zooming through the air before it releases the missile.

Among the technologies Putin showed off was a robotic torpedo capable of hitting a U.S. port city, but Mattis said that made no difference as Russian Federation already can target USA port cities with missiles.

Recall, March 1, in his address to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Putin showed a video with a new nuclear missile, which flew in the direction of the United States. The massive twin-engine MiG-31 remains the fastest operational fighter capable of clocking a top speed close to Mach 3. It is reportedly equipped with its own radar detection, which provides the missile complex with complete independence and operational activities, making it highly maneuverable.

The MiG-31 departed from an airfield in the Southern Military District within the framework of a testing air alert.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Facebook that Russian Federation had been working to modernize the MiG-31 supersonic jet that will carry the missile. "The hypersonic missile confirmed its technical operational performance and timing data of the Kinzhal missile system".

Yesterday, the Delhi Court extended the CBI custody of Chidambaram, till March 12. Jail authorities should ensure proper security and safety as per rules, he said.

Alexander Bortnikov, head of Russia's internal intelligence service, the FSB, who also took part in the film, said that a decision was made to "raise combat aircraft in order to control the flight".

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White downplayed Putin's comments, saying the USA military was capable of defending the country from any threats.

Mr Putin is widely expected to be re-elected as Russia's president in a week's time.

"I was told: a plane en route from Ukraine to Istanbul was seized, captors demand landing in Sochi", Putin said in the film seen by Reuters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is facing criticism over comments suggesting Jews and other minorities may have been responsible for meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election. "They do not impact any need on our side for a change in our deterrence posture".

Putin's comment also caught the attention of the American Jewish Committee, which said it was "eerily reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - a forged tsarist-era, anti-Semitic pamphlet that purported to describe plans for Jewish domination of Europe.
