Vladimir Putin news – Apocalyptic missile that can hit UK is nearly ready, maniac Russian leader warns
RUSSIA will further strengthen its armed forces as a devastating nuclear missile is nearly ready for use, Vladimir Putin warned today.
The 208-tonne RS-28 Sarmat missile – standing at the colossal height of a 14-storey tower block – is capable of striking targets at almost 16,000mph.
The world-ending nuke can carry 15 warheads and has the potential to obliterate an area the size of the UK in a single blast.
Speaking during televised comments on Tuesday, the Russian leader said: “We will continue to develop and strengthen our armed forces, taking into account potential military threats and risks,”
He added that Russia’s intercontinental ballistic missiles, capable of carrying 10 or more nuclear warheads and decoys, would be deployed for duty by the end of the year.
