Russia Air Launches Hypersonic Missile In Arctic As Tensions Surge 

A Mikoyan MiG-31 interceptor jet air-launched a Kinjal (Dagger) hypersonic missile over Russia’s part of the Arctic. 

Reuters is reporting that Russian state-owned TASS is making big claims this weekend that a Russian military jet has air-launched a hypersonic missile in the Arctic. 

TASS cites several Russian military sources, who said a Mikoyan MiG-31 interceptor jet air-launched a Kinjal (Dagger) hypersonic missile over Russia’s part of the Arctic earlier this month.

As we’ve recently noted, Russia has been aggressively expanding its military presence in the Arctic. It has also been increasing exploration activities in the region, such as oil and gas and mineral extraction.

“aggressively expanding”?
Russia is flying military planes over its own territory of the RUSSIAN ARCTIC.
This is normal, nothing “aggressive” about it.

Whenever a HillaryBot reads Russia and aggression in an article anywhere, their cute little rabbit ears perk up like an energizer bunny and hop into the road, only to be subsequently squashed by an oncoming SUV called Reality.

Sorry, real bunnies. No disrespect meant. Maybe snakes would have been a better analogy.

And why shouldn’t they, on their own territory. Next you’ll be telling us they didn’t ask permission from the USA and NATO.

Commentators here all bitch when NATO conducts military operations in its own territory. But when Russia does it, you cheer on. A bunch of tribalist hypocrites.
Newsflash. If NATO collapses then those hypersonic Russian missiles will be trained on China and vice-versa, cuz the Chicoms will step up to fill the void.

It’s called blowback. Look it up, or just study Newton’s laws of physics, NATOBot.

PS: speaking of aggressive. NATO takes the cake. The world’d be fine with it if it didn’t behave like the Mafia while calling itself Mother Theresa.

“in it’s own territory”….Yuck yuck. Gobble gobble. NATO is a gutworm lurking in a tempting salad buffet.

USA and its vassal states (NATO) threaten Russia everyday. No one can blame the Russians for taking precautions . . . After all NATO is on its doorstep.
