According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, analysts concerned that America is entering a new cold war with his country are nothing more than "propagandists."

During a rare interview with NBC's Megyn Kelly, Putin claimed "individuals who said that a new cold war has started are not really analysts."

"They do propaganda," he insisted. 

Kelly proceeded to tell the Russian president that some believe the country faked the launch of a missile that reportedly "renders defense systems useless" because the Kremlin's videos of the test launch were animated, which he shrugged off.

"As a matter of fact, every single weapons system discussed today easily surpasses and avoids an anti-missile defense system," Putin told the NBC host.
