President Putin dedicated a surprising amount of his annual state-of-the-nation speech on Thursday to Russia’s latest high-tech weapons, revealing that the country is developing and testing new ballistic missiles, a nuclear-powered cruise missile, a new underwater drone, and laser weapons. The Internet took note.

Pavel Smolyak offered up a short and sweet summary of Putin’s address:

Putin showed a missile that will kill everyone.

Putin showed a second missile that will really kill everyone.


When the president started talking about missiles, more than a few Russian Internet users recalled how Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy rocket last month, carrying a Tesla car into outer space.

Two outer spaces.


Put simply, now we’ve got the missiles to shoot down their Teslas.


What do you say now, Elon Musk?


Putin’s talk of weaponized lasers also led to some Star Wars humor.


Basically, Russia’s strategic goal over the next six years is to construct the Death Star.


For those too lazy to read, here’s Putin’s speech in one picture.


Now this is really good.

The 3D graphics showed on video screens during Putin’s speech didn’t exactly impress. Some viewers joked online that they looked like clips from old computer games.


The original video from Putin’s speech has been found.


Putin demonstrated missiles that are unrivaled anywhere in the world.


Putin presented one of Russia’s newest weapons.

Some Internet users started making plans for life after the nuclear apocalypse, recalling the currency used by characters in the computer game Fallout.


Okay, so Coca-Cola bottle caps will be worth a ruble, and Pepsi caps will be worth 50 kopecks. Are we agreed?


Putin is asking the world to listen to Russia, but the new missile flies faster than sound…
