Kremlin-controlled TV airs 'secret' plans for nuclear weapon

Submarine-launched torpedo

(ANSA) - Rome, November 12 - President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said Thursday plans for a new submarine-launched nuclear torpedo shown on Kremlin-controlled television were secret and should never have been aired, the Associated Press reported.
    NTV and Channel One showed a large document - filmed over a military officer's shoulder during a meeting with Putin - with drawings and details of a weapons system called Status-6.
    The torpedoes could create "extensive zones of radioactive contamination" that would make enemy coastal areas "unsuitable for military, economic, business or other activity for a long time," the document said.
    The channels later removed the footage, which was shot during a meeting on Monday in Sochi.
