Russia launches “invincible” nuke missile: Could hit anywhere in world

Amid the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin has showcased his power to the West by launching a new intercontinental ballistic missile, Sarmat, on Wednesday. 

During its launch, Putin said that the latest missile launch is capable of firing up to 15 nuclear warheads in a single strike and could reach anywhere in the world. 

It’s dubbed Satan 2. 

According to him, the launch of Sarmat is able to overpower all modern means of missile defence and would make the West “think twice” before harbouring any aggressive intentions against Moscow. “There is not — and won’t be — anything comparable in the world,” he said.

Meanwhile, in a statement, the Russian Defence Ministry said that the Sarmat ICBM was launched from the Plesetsk launch facility in northern Russia. It claimed that its practice warheads have successfully reached mock targets on the Kura firing range in far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula. 

While speaking to the senior officials on Wednesday, the Russian President hailed the efforts of defence officials who were engaged in the launch. As per Putin, the Sarmat missile has no foreign analogues and is capable of penetrating any prospective missile defence.

“This really unique weapon will strengthen the combat potential of our armed forces, reliably ensure Russia’s security from external threats and make those, who in the heat of frantic aggressive rhetoric tries to threaten our country, think twice,” Putin stressed.

Notably, he was pointing fingers at the sanctions imposed by the West and the European Union on Moscow in a bid to target its arms industries for its action against Ukraine. He said that the new missile is built exclusively from domestic components.
