Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that his country is ready for a nuclear war from a "military-technical" point of view. CE Report quotes Anadolu Agency

“From a military-technical point of view, we are, of course, ready. They (Russian forces) are constantly in a state of combat readiness,” Putin told the state-run Rossiya-1 television in an interview.

He said it is a “generally accepted thing” that Russia’s nuclear triad -- land, sea, and air -- is more modern than any other, adding that only Moscow and Washington have such a triad.

“We have made much more progress here. Ours is more modern, with all the nuclear components. In general, in terms of carriers and charges, we have approximately parity, but ours is more modern,” he said.
