Security will be a key topic in the annual address of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly, according to Russian newspaper Kommersant.


One of the topics of the message may be the Russian aircraft crash over Egypt's Sinai.

On Tuesday, Russian Presidential Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov confirmed that a ban on air traffic with Egypt would last, though Russia does not consider the terrorist attack a final version of the airliner crash.

Speaking at a meeting on the development of the Armed Forces, Vladimir Putin said that Russia would develop a missile strike system that could overcome any missile defense systems, which were now developed by the United States.
