So is Russia really ahead in regard to these weapons? Putin Issues a Strong Warning to Unspecified Countries
The above statement by Putin can possibly be a response to this:U.S. Government Considers a First Strike Against Russia
It is from the 2nd of October, 2018, so it is possible that Putin was responding to this.
It is amazing that the U.S. government actually makes such public announcements, albeit they do accuse Russia of violating a treaty, so that might be a case of trying to create a legitimate excuse for such a first strike before it takes place.
Or it might be a clever attempt to fool Russia into believing that this will be only a "very limited strike" but in reality it will be a full scale attack meant to obliterate Russia.
