The Russian president announced the creation of the new intercontinental cruise missiles, Burevestnik, in 2018.
On Tuesday, the Russian Presidency spokesperson Dmitry Peskov refuted information disseminated by The New York Times regarding Russia's preparations for the trials of the new Russian intercontinental nuclear propulsion cruise missile, Burevestnik.
"No, I cannot confirm this. I don't know where the journalists from The New York Times got this," Peskov said, suggesting that the American newspaper's journalists should more thoroughly review the satellite images they used to support their claims.
According to the American newspaper, satellite images show a launch vehicle positioned in the Russian Arctic's New Siberian Islands, equipment that, due to its dimensions, could transport such a missile.
The New York Times observed activity in this area on February 20 and 28, with truck movement near the launch vehicle.
