Florida's in the crosshairs of Russia's beefed-up nuclear weaponry.

During his annual address to Russia's Parliament, President Vladimir Putin rolled out a video hyping the nation's military tech that featured multiple nuclear warheads streaking through space before raining down on what appears to be the outline of Florida, CNN reported.

"We've developed new strategic weapons that don't use ballistic trajectory at all, which means that missile defense will be useless against it," he boasted.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said department officials didn't enjoy the show.

"It was certainly unfortunate to have watched the video animation that depicted a nuclear attack on the United States," she told CNN. "That's certainly something that we did not enjoy watching. We don't regard that as the behavior of a responsible international player."

One CNN analyst said the video had a target audience of one: President Donald Trump, whose home-away-from-home is in Florida.

"I do think Vladimir Putin was speaking to one audience," national security analyst Samantha Vinograd said. "It wasn't anyone in Russia. It was Donald Trump."

"He was trying to get the president distracted from anything that Trump may be doing to hold Russia accountable for the ongoing attack on the United States," she said.
