RUSSIA has sent a direct military threat to America warning Washington their new intercontinental ballistic missiles can “rip apart” anti-missile systems.

A high-ranking Kremlin official laughingly dismissed the USA’s defence shield, claiming it poses “no serious military risk”.

And they also boasted of a new state-of-the-art tank, which is now being rolled out by Vladimir Putin. 

Dmitry Rogozin, one of Russia’s eight deputy prime ministers, made the provocative claims on state television on Sunday.

Mr Rogozin, who has special responsibility for defence, began his tirade by discussing the country’s powerful new ICBMs.

He said: “These weapons will soon appear in our armed forces. These weapons are able to clear the United States’ missile defence both of today and of tomorrow – and even of the day after tomorrow.

“We can rip their air defences apart. At the moment the shield poses no serious military threat to us, except for provocations.”

Mr Rogozin also discussed a powerful new T-14 Armata tanks, which he said would leave European, American and Middle Eastern models in their dust.

He said: “Speaking of tanks, we definitely have an advantage, because [the T-14] today leaves American and Israeli tanks, not to mention European tanks, behind in terms of technical characteristics.”
