Putin Says He Has `Zero Personal Relationship' With Trump

  Putin Says He Has `Zero Personal Relationship' With Trump Russian President Vladimir Putin said he has no personal ties to his American counterpart Donald Trump as he lamented the crisis in relations between the former Cold War rivals. “We have zero personal relationship. We’ve only met once,’’ Putin said on Wednesday at the Russian Energy Week conference in Moscow. The Russian leader praised Trump as someone with a strong character who will “never be anybody’s hostage,” but said the relationship between Russia and the U.S. has been poisoned by a domestic political fight in America.

Russia's new Star Wars-like combat suit is apparently getting a nuclear-resistant watch, according to Newsweek, citing Rostec, the Russian defence contractor building the suit.

The third-generation Ratnik-3 suit "comprises five integrated systems that include life support, command and communication, engaging, protection and energy saving subsystems," according to Tass, a Russian state-owned media outlet.

In total, the suit comes with 59 items, Tass said, including a powered exoskeleton that supposedly gives the soldier more strength and stamina, along with cutting-edge body armour and a helmet and visor that shields the soldier's entire face.

The suit also has a "pop-up display that can be used for tasks like examining a plan of the battlefield," Andy Lynch, who works for a military company called Odin Systems, previously told MailOnline.

Now it's apparently being fitted with a watch that "retains its properties upon the impact of radiation and electromagnetic impulses, for example, upon a nuclear blast," according to Rostec's chief designer of the suit, Oleg Faustov.

The first-generation Ratnik suit was reportedly given to a few Russian units in 2013, and some pieces of the suit were spotted on Russian troops in Crimea, according to The New York Times.

The third-generation Ratnik suit will supposedly be ready for service in 2022, according to Russian Col. Gen. Oleg Salyukov.

Russia even unveiled a video of the suit in late June, but it only showed a static display of the suit, so it's unknown if it actually has any of the capabilities that are claimed.

Russia is also not the only country developing such technology, Sim Tack, a Stratfor analyst, previously told Business Insider.

The US hopes to unveil its own Tactical Light Operator Suit, also known as the "Iron Man" suit, in 2018. France is working on one too, the Integrated Infantryman Equipment and Communications system, or FELIN.

Nevertheless, many problems still exist with these suits, such as bulky batteries that power the exoskeletons, Tack said.

And while Salyukov recently said that they have been able to reduce the Ratnik-3's weight by 30%, Russia is known to make wild claims about its military equipment that it doesn't back up.

Russia reportedly used Pokémon Go in an effort to inflame racial tensions .
Russia’s far-ranging campaign to promote dissension in the United States reportedly included an effort to weaponize Pokémon Go. The Tumblr page was linked to Do Not Shoot Us, a multi-platform campaign designed to mimic aspects of Black Lives Matter. (As CNN notes, the name plays on “hands up, don’t shoot,” one of the movement’s slogans.) Do Not Shoot Us included a website, donotshoot.us, along with related pages on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. The Facebook page was one of 470 pages that were removed after the company determined that it was linked to Russian groups attempting to interfere in US politics.
