Russian state TV has identified American military bases which it says Moscow could strike with hypersonic missiles in the space of five minutes if nuclear war broke out between the two countries.

The Pentagon and presidential retreat near Camp David, in Maryland, topped the list along with Jim Creek, a naval communications base in Washington state.

But the Vesti Nedeli television station also identified two targets – a training center at Fort Ritchie, Maryland, and McClellan Air Force base, California – which are both defunct, having been abandoned in 1998 and 2001 respectively.

It comes after Vladimir Putin warned Russia is ready for a new Cuban Missile Crisis if the US wants one, after President Trump tore up a key Cold War arms treaty.

The report, which was unusual even by the typically aggressive style of Russian TV, was broadcast on Sunday evening.

Russia fears the United States might deploy intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe which were previously banned under the Intermediate Nuclear Forces treaty.

Putin has said Russia would be forced to respond by placing hypersonic nuclear missiles on submarines near U.S. waters.

The United States says it has no immediate plans to deploy such missiles in Europe and has dismissed Putin’s warnings as disingenuous propaganda.

It does not currently have ground-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles that it could place in Europe.

However, its decision to quit the 1987 treaty over an alleged Russian violation, something Moscow denies, has freed it to start developing such missiles.

Putin has said Russia does not want a new arms race, but has also dialled up his military rhetoric.
