(Natural News) A Russian news outlet claimed the country has an electronic signal jamming weapon that could disable planes, ships, and missiles, according to an article published in TheSun.co.uk. This weapon could erase the entire US Navy with a single, cutting-edge "electronic bomb". The Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops could detect and "neutralize" any target from a radar, a ship's navigation system, to a satellite. The report also claimed that several years ago, a single Russian war plane flew a few times around the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea. It disabled the American destroyer's systems, rendering it useless. The propaganda report even claimed to have high-ranking U.S. General Frank Gorenc saying, "Russian electronic weapons completely paralyze the functioning of American electronic equipment installed on missiles, aircraft and ships." A U.S. military spokesperson has denied General Gorenc ever uttering these words.
This news comes after U.S. President Donald Trump dispatched the USS Carl Vinson alongside a score of destroyers, a cruiser, and one submarine, to the Korean Peninsula. USS Carl Vinson is powered by nuclear reactors and carries nearly 100 aircraft.
It is believed that President Trump is boosting the deployment of American troops in the region. President Trump has said he will send the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz to the Sea of Japan soon. It is thought that Russia along with China have sent a spy ship to the Korean Peninsula to thwart the American forces dispatch amidst the ever-growing tension in the region. The movements of the U.S. battleships in the region were also due to the comments made by Russian President Vladimir Putin. He urged the U.S. to show restraint.
