"My point of view is the individuals who is said that a new Cold War has started are not really analysts", Putin replied.:They do propaganda.

"Russian statements threatening to target Allies are unacceptable and counterproductive", North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said in a statement.

Putin left his usual Kremlin perch to speak from a nearby exhibition centre - allowing him to show a series of video montages of missiles crossing mountains and oceans, heading over the Atlantic before striking the U.S. eastern seaboard.

And Putin's bluster is aimed just as much at his own people as it is the U.S. With Russia's presidential election next month, an election Putin will most certainly win, yet with the nation's economy suffering stagnation, boasting of Russia's increased military might may be a way of increasing voter turnout, essentially allowing him to claim an even bigger voter mandate for his policies.

"I have to see first what they've done", Putin said.

So does this mean a new Cold War-style arms race is underway?

Putin said to Russian lawmakers that he hopes this display of power will "sober up any potential aggressor", adding, "You will listen to us now". "Trump, in the campaign, said if he wants an arms race, let there be an arms".

Russian Federation has also dismissed allegations made by the United States of violating arms control treaties that were signed in the Cold War.

The Pentagon on Thursday dismissed Putin's boasts about developing a new array of nuclear weapons, saying America's missile defense is ready to protect the nation but is not directed at Russian Federation.

Nearly half of his almost two-hour speech was dedicated to the country's latest weaponry.

"No one else in the world has anything like that", Putin said.

"They know very well that it's not about them".

Peskov denied suggestions that one of the videos allegedly used a map of the United States to simulate an attack on Florida.

"No maps were used there, these are absolutely symbolic contours, there is not any tie-up to any concrete country".

A unmanned underwater vehicle: Putin said the Russian military had been developing a stealthy underwater vehicle that can target a wide range of targets, including carrier groups or coastal bases.

But Russian media outlets are now reporting that the video displayed on the giant screen during Putin's address is from a documentary called "Satan" that was broadcast on Russia's state-run Channel One in 2007. "Give us materials, give us information".

The United States withdrew from that arms-control pact in 2002 under President George W. Bush.
