As nuclear tensions near a breaking point, Vladimir Putin has delivered a terrifying warning, pledging to deploy the Sarmat hypersonic missile known as “Satan 2” before the end of the year.
The declaration follows a slew of terrifying threats made by Putin to the West, who claimed that Russia will deploy its lethal “Prometheus” hypersonic nuclear system on Monday (June 20).
The dictator, despite rising tensions with NATO nations, issued his most recent warning, stating that the devastating Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile will be deployed within the next six months.
With its 15 warheads and its 11,000-mile range, the deadly Satan 2 nuclear missile has the ability to obliterate an area the size of the United Kingdom in a single blast.
Putin praised the new missile’s development, which was hailed as a major turning point for Russia’s defense sector when it was successfully tested earlier this week.
The rocket can defeat any contemporary anti-missile defense, the dictator bragged.
The use of the lethal weapon comes as tensions over the invasion of Ukraine are rising and the Russian president has threatened the West repeatedly.
Putin has previously stated that those who attempt to harm Russia would be forced to reconsider by the nuclear missile known as “Satan 2.”
In reference to all of the former USSR lands, which he regarded as historic Russia, Putin claimed he wouldn’t think twice about extending the Ukrainian conflict to nations who resist Russia.
Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan were all formed as a result of the Soviet Union’s dissolution between 1990 and 1991.
A close confidant of Vladimir Putin asserted that Russia had the right to self-defense and that NATO was directly waging war against it.
Politician Andrey Klimov criticized Lithuania for preventing some items from entering Kaliningrad, a tiny enclave of Russia walled off from its borders by Lithuania and Latvia, in a post on the messaging app Telegram.
Putin responded to NATO war simulations in April by organizing large-scale exercises in the Baltic Sea, where he deployed 60 vessels, 40 planes, and 2,000 military units while the West flexed its muscles at his doorstep.
The navy exercises took place while tensions between Moscow and NATO were rising following the submission of Sweden’s and Finland’s membership applications to the US-led alliance following the commencement of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
