Future wars will have much more devastating weapons than airstrikes, tanks and even nuclear weapons. Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations warned about new threats, including geophysical and genetic weapons that could pose threats to Russia’s well-being in the future.

Future weapons will be based on energy, electromagnetic, radiological, geophysical and genetic principles. There will also be special information weapons to change people's perception, completely changing their mind, the Ministry said.

Geophysical weapons that can alter the weather were already talked about in the past. People even wondered whether some hurricanes and earthquakes were "natural" disasters, speculating that it was possible to alter the climate and set off earthquakes using electromagnetic fields.

These deadly weapons of the future will target main control centers, essential facilities, technology, infrastructure and population.

Future weapons will disrupt the physical processes that occur on the Earth and change people's DNA, causing genetic mutations and diseases.

According to the Emergency Situations Ministry, this will allow an attacker to interrupt a victim's entire control of the economy and administrative functions, as well as cause irreversible long-term destruction of territories and populations living in these territories.

There are over 4,500 objects considered as "critically important" across Russia. Most of them are located in densely populated areas near large cities and towns. If an enemy decides to attack Russia using these geophysical and genetic weapons then the country would face irreparable damages that would halt the country's entire livelihood.

Since biological weapons are easier to acquire than nuclear weapons, there is a chance that biological and other DNA-affecting weapons might soon fall into the hands of radical non-state actors and terrorists, such as al-Qaeda, said Professor Paul Cornish, the director of research group Defense, Security and Infrastructure at RAND think-tank.

"This is everybody's big fear," Cornish said, adding that it's only the question of "when does al-Qaeda get to have the money and labs."

    Russia needs the MOST secretive sites to hide all. That no one will find them. And pass laws like U.S . Any separatist attempting to separate Russian lands, will face 25 yrs in jail and hard labor camps.

    This a the way to say to the US: "We know what you're doing" ...
    You can bet that not only Russia is ready to reply to theses menaces, but that also has some good cards in his hand!
    Luckily for the free world, you can't intimidate Russia

    jaodernein, there are NO good cards in this game. It's MAD all over again, and this time, as always, every nation claims to justify genetic destruction and things that only a few years ago would have been uncivilized and unimaginable.
    The technology of tomorrow, designed to carry out that behavior which is fitting of primal animals, not an "evolved being" is just another nail in the coffin of human civilization.

    "There will also be special information weapons to change people's perception, completely changing their mind, the Ministry said."
    He never heard about FoxNews, NYT and thousands more current information weapons already deployed???

    It's not "Al Qaida" or whatever terrorist bogeyman the globalists concoct, that I am worried about.

    I don't trust any government with this technology.

    When i read these kinds of news it only confirms my thinking that the human race hasn't learned a damn thing from it's own history!

    DNA via MARXhu Akbar ??? Does that come with many heads and no brains as is the current norm?
  • The $5 ABS plastic anti-rape device that clamps around the neck will remain the best and cheapest weapon, even a 6ft attacker fears being chocked to death by any small lady who might have the device in her purse.
