Russia test-fires hypersonic missile

Russia has said it has successfully test-fired a hypersonic missile, announced by President Vladimir Putin earlier this month.

The Kinzhal is said to travel at 10 times the speed of sound and have a range of 2,000 km.

The country’s defence ministry said the missile was launched from a MiG-31 jet that took off from an airfield in south-west Russia on Saturday and hit the intended target.

On 1 March, Putin had described the Kinzhal missile, named after a type of dagger, and said it was part of a new stockpile of “invincible” weapons.

As part of his annual state of the nation address, he had played a video graphic that appeared to show missiles raining down on the US state of Florida.
