According to The Jerusalem Post's translation, the main gift of the new year was the arsenal of Zircon missiles that went to the shores of NATO countries.

The publication reported that he wanted the missiles to be close to the river.

The ability of hypersonic missiles to travel on an unpredictable flight path makes them harder to intercept. CNN reported that the Zircon has a range of between 310 and 620 miles.

The US federal government is located in Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday, Russia announced that it was sending its destroyer, armed with missiles, on a long-range voyage that would take it through the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and Mediterranean Sea.

Medvedev has produced some of the most extreme and hawkish commentary since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, frequently boasting of his country's nuclear arsenal and going beyond the rhetoric offered by Putin.

He referred to the US as "sons of bitches" and "freaks" in his post on Thursday, and he accused the US Embassy of using Nazi propaganda methods.

Billions of dollars of aid and weaponry have been sent to the country by the US.

The sight of the admiral off the coast of the US will bring to mind anyone who poses a threat to Russia and our allies.
