Russian Federation test-launches new 'Satan 2' ballistic missile

Russian Federation test-launches new 'Satan 2' ballistic missile

The footage shows the Sarmat missile - dubbed "Satan 2" by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - being launched from the Plesetsk spaceport.

Russian Federation tested its new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday as tensions continued to soar between Moscow and the West.

Russian president Vladimir Putin said earlier this month that the new Sarmat missile system would render any US missile defense system "useless" and warned the west that it had "failed to contain Russia" in remarks to lawmakers and political elites.

Russia's ministry of defense tweeted a video showing the ICBM taking off.

The ICMB was sacked for the second time since tests began last December, say Moscow officials.

Russian Aerospace Forces successfully tested the air-launched Kinzhal hypersonic missile. The MoD revealed no further details about the missile's flight route.

Putin claimed that Russian Federation has created nuclear weapons that can "avoid missile defense systems", and that the country also intends to build up its stockpile of nuclear missiles that would be able to hit anywhere in the world.

Putin has made much of developing such "invincible" systems as a counter to costly U.S. missile defense programs. Putin also said that other nuclear cruise missiles would have "unlimited" range, as well.

"No "kind of" - not even future missile defense systems will offer any trouble to the Russian rocket complex, Sarmat", Putin said in a speech.

"With these steps, the United States and our allies and partners make clear to Russian Federation that its actions have consequences", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement this week.

"Russia remained and remains the largest nuclear power".

Putin has since said he does not want an arms race.

He said the Sarmat missile is "a new weapon in response to the deployment of missile defense by the US overseas".

Putin also boasted of Russia's "modern, compact and high-tech army".
