UK Chief of Defence Intelligence Warns of Capability of Russia’s Burevestnik Missile

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The United Kingdom’s chief of defence intelligence, Lt. Gen. Jim Hockenhull, has warned that Russia’s nuclear-powered Burevestnik (NATO name Skyfall) cruise missiles could remain in the atmosphere for multiple years if necessary and could pose a threat at any moment.

“Moscow is testing a sub-sonic nuclear-powered cruise missile system which has global reach and would allow attack from unexpected directions,” Hockenhull said during a media briefing at the Five Eyes intelligence hub, as quoted by the UK’s Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
