Putin tells USA to send evidence of vote meddling

Russian President Vladimir Putin gives his annual state of the nation address in Manezh in Moscow Russia Thursday

The US intelligence community concluded previous year that Russia-linked actors interfered in the 2016 US election on specific orders from Putin.

Fielding quick-fire questions from supporters in Russia's European exclave of Kaliningrad, Putin was asked what Russian historical event he would like to change.

New weapons he boasted about in his address include a prototype missile that "can reach any point in the world" and a supersonic weapon that cannot be tracked by anti-missile systems.

Washington accused Moscow of breaching Cold War-era arms treaties, with a State Department spokeswoman saying it was "unfortunate" to have watched a video animation that depicted a nuclear attack on the United States. "If you were to speak about arms race than an arms race began at exactly the time and moment when the USA opted out of the Anti Ballistic Missile Treaty".

The United States withdrew from that arms-control pact in 2002 under President George W. Bush. "Our system defends against ballistic missiles from outside the Euro-Atlantic area", Lungescu said, in reference to the Middle East and further afield.

Other observers are skeptical about Russia's supposed new arsenal, because Moscow has not shown proof of successful tests.

"They do propaganda", said Putin.

Russian Federation has also began experimental use of a new small air-launched missile system called Kinzhal, or Dagger, that flies at 10 times the speed of sound with an unpredictable trajectory towards its target, Mr Putin said. More than 130,000 people have come to participate in the rally dubbed For Strong Russia in Moscow on Saturday, the Interior Ministry's representative Irina Volk told TASS on Saturday.
