Hypersonic weapons in Russia began to be created when Obama was a teenager, says the scientist.
Vanguard Herbert Efremov, the creator of the Russian hypersonic warfare bloc, responded to U.S. President Donald Trump`s accusations that he stole U.S. data to create these weapons. He told the Russian newspaper about it.
“Trump said that Obama had given up these secrets to the Russians. Only Barack Obama has been the US president since 2009. Our experiments on these cases began in Soviet times, when Obama was a teenager. He went to school and we already experimented with hypersound,” Efremov said.
Recall that Trump said that Russia stole American drawings of hypersonic weapons under Obama and based on them created its own. At the same time, he noted that the U.S. has “the most powerful weapons”, which neither Russia nor China knows about.
Literally the next day, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that for the first time in modern history, Russia possessed weapons superior to all existing ones.
