“Probably, you already know about one of our latest developments, very promising, having no analogs in the world at all - it is Avangard, our missile system. There are no analogs. They probably will appear in a few years, but nobody has them yet. If it were not for the new materials, it would be impossible," Putin said addressing students at the Ural Federal University.
