Vladimir Putin launches ‘Satan-2’ missile in warning to ‘those who threaten Russia’

UKRAINE (April 20, 2022)—Vladimir Putin has issued a chilling warning claiming Russia has successfully launched a huge intercontinental ballistic missile known as ‘Satan-2’.

The Russian president bragged that the new Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile would provide “food for thought” for anyone thinking of threatening Moscow.

 

He claimed no nation in the world is capable of stopping the newly-tested weapon, which experts believe is capable of firing more than 10 nuclear warheads at a time.

Russia’s ministry of defense says the weapon was launched at the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the northwest of the country, and successfully hit targets in the far east.

The missile was seen emerging amid huge rocket flames and smoke from an underground silo in a video released by Moscow.

Putin, who is being investigated for war crimes committed by his forces in Ukraine, reportedly claimed the missile would “strengthen the combat potential of our armed forces”.

It is said to be able to fly 6,000 miles and be capable of targeting an area the size of France, potentially killing millions.

Putin was shown on state TV being told by the military that the missile had been launched from Plesetsk and hit targets in the Kamchatka peninsula.

The Russian president said: “The new complex has the highest tactical and technical characteristics and is capable of overcoming all modern means of anti-missile defense.

“It has no analogues in the world and won’t have for a long time to come.

“This truly unique weapon will strengthen the combat potential of our armed forces, reliably ensure Russia’s security from external threats and provide food for thought for those who, in the heat of frenzied aggressive rhetoric, try to threaten our country.”

He was seen in a video conference with defense minister Sergei Shoigu – who had been rumoured to be sidelined.

Shoigu told the President: “Comrade Supreme Commander-in-Chief – preparations for the first flight test of the Sarmat missile system completed at the first state test cosmodrome in Arkhangelsk region.”

A military announcement said: “Today at 15:12 Moscow time, a successful launch of a stationary intercontinental ballistic missile Sarmat was conducted from the silo at the Plesetsk state test facility in the Arkhangelsk region.
