Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the creation of the Avangard hypersonic missile complex is comparable in its significance to the creation of the first artificial satellite of the Earth, while speaking at his annual address to the Federal Assembly in Moscow on Wednesday.

Putin’s speech will be delivered to both houses of the Russian Parliament, members of the government, as well as other officials and public figures.

Over 1,000 people are attending Putin’s 15th state-of-the-nation address in the Moscow Gostiny Dvor (the Merchant Court), including members of both houses of the Russian Parliament, members of the government, as well as other officials and prominent figures, alongside 761 journalists that were accredited for the event.
