Kremlin: Putin held Security Council meeting to discuss U.S. missile test
MOSCOW – The Kremlin said on Friday that President Vladimir Putin had held a meeting of Russia’s Security Council to discuss a recent U.S. cruise missile test.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call that Putin would make “an important announcement” shortly.
The Pentagon said on Monday it had tested a conventionally-configured cruise missile that hit its target after more than 500 km (310 miles) of flight, the first such test since the United States pulled out of a major arms control treaty with Russia on Aug. 2.
