Russian President Vladimir Putin attends the plenary session of the Business Russia forum in Moscow, Russia, Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019.

MOSCOW – Alarmed by the Trump administration's scrapping of a Cold War-era arms control treaty, President Vladimir Putin of Russia has ramped up warnings that his country is developing new hypersonic missiles that will travel at more than five times the speed of sound and will be "invincible."
