Hillary's reset button: Putin adding 40 nukes

In 2009, Hillary offered "a reset button" to the Russians. Since then, Vladimir Putin has seized Crimea and invaded eastern Ukraine and made provocative moves toward the Baltic States.

And now there is this:

From Reuters:
Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, said on Tuesday that Russia would add more than 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles to its nuclear arsenal this year and a defence official accused Nato of provoking a new arms race.

Putin made his announcement a day after Russian officials denounced a US plan to station tanks and heavy weapons in NATO states on Russia's border as the most aggressive US act since the Cold War.

"More than 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles able to overcome even the most technically advanced anti-missile defence systems will be added to the make-up of the nuclear arsenal this year," Mr Putin, flanked by army officers, said in a speech to a military and arms fair.
