The US intelligence community concluded a year ago that Russia-linked actors interfered in the 2016 US election on specific orders from Putin.
The new nuclear-powered cruise missile could have serious implications for U.S. -Russia relations by complicating the bilateral New START treaty that meant to downsize the world's two largest nuclear arsenals.
"He's saying that these are things that the Russians are developing, including an underwater drone that can be launched from a submarine carrying an under-sea nuclear weapon, he responded before getting to the meat of the matter".
As the weapon name contest went on, Russian officials and lawmakers insisted that Putin's speech wasn't an announcement of a new arms race but a warning to Washington to treat Russia as an equal partner.
Other observers are skeptical about Russia's supposed new arsenal, because Moscow has not shown proof of successful tests.
"You will have to assess that new reality and become convinced that what I was said today isn't a bluff", he said.
The Pentagon has not publicly talked about the nuclear-powered cruise missile mentioned by Putin. The playful offer evokes the Soviet-era tradition of giving the innocuous names to some of the deadliest weapons systems.
One particular sore point for Moscow is NATO's USA -built missile defence umbrella across Spain, Poland and Romania, which the alliance says is created to shoot down Iranian rockets.
Deployed? Not yet. The 2018 US Nuclear Posture Review notes that Russian Federation is developing a "new intercontinental, nuclear armed, nuclear-powered, undersea autonomous torpedo" as a new nuclear-weapons delivery system.
"Sanders adds the new defense budget of $700 billion will ensure the USA military will be stronger than ever".

So she (Wie) dropped the bomb on the last. "The nerves that I got on 18, I think any human being would experience it", she said. Wie's approach shot on 18 came up a little short, leaving her with a 35-foot putt from the fringe for birdie.
"This makes it absolutely invincible for any forms of air and missile defence", he boasted, calling it an 'ideal weapon'.
Kelly's interview arrives as Putin rattled a sabre about Russia's nuclear capabilities, warning the West that his country's new intercontinental ballistic missile can evade any sort of detection and strike anywhere. Putin said trials began in December.
To complete the list, he mentioned a smaller hypersonic missile that is already operational and has a range of more than 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a new laser weapon. "You have failed to contain Russian Federation".
"Our nuclear doctrine determines no other reasons for the use of nuclear weapons", Peskov stressed.
Kelly then touched on a few facets of Russia's meddling, which the U.S. intelligence community said was done specifically on orders from the Kremlin itself. "It will trigger an immediate answer with all the consequences stemming from it".
"America is moving forward to modernize our nuclear arsenal and ensure our capabilities are unmatched".
Russian state news agency Tass cited Russia's Strategic Missile Force Commander as saying that testing of the system "has been successfully completed".
"We aren't threatening anyone, we aren't going to attack anyone, we aren't going to take anything from anyone", he said.
The Russian military has been left red-faced over fake footage in the past.
