The Russian Navy has test-fired a supersonic Onyx anti-ship cruise missile for the first time. It was launched from the Bastion missile-defense system, which was recently deployed to the Russian Arctic.
Footage of the launch shows one P-800 Onyx missile, which can travel at speeds of up to 2,700 km/h (some 1,700mph), shooting up in the air and then gliding above the sea towards a mock target designed to simulate a group of hostile ships.

Speaking Friday at an industry event in Pittsburgh hosted by the Consumer Energy Alliance, US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said the US Navy can blockade Russia [highly doubtful] if needed in order to keep it from controlling energy supplies in the Middle East as it does in Europe.
"The United States has that ability, with our Navy, to make sure the sea lanes are open, and, if necessary, to blockade… to make sure that their energy does not go to market," Zinke the leftist fascist said.
