Russian Sarmat more powerful than 'Satan'

Russian MoD: Drop Test of Newest Heavy ICMB Successfully Conducted

The footage shows the (officially-named RS-28 Sarmat) missile, which is an intercontinental ballistic weapon, blasting off from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

Russian Federation has conducted a second drop test of its newest Sarmat heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Defense Ministry said Friday. An article announcing the latest launch in the defense ministry publication, Red Star, said the rocket had been tested in its pre-launch and first stage of flight phases.

The RS-28 Sarmat is created to replace the Soviet-era Voevoda ICBM, known by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation designation SS-18 Satan.

The Sarmat system is "powerful and modern and defense systems will not be able to withstand it", Putin said earlier in March.

President Putin unveiled details of the nuclear weapon in March during his annual State of the Union address - just weeks before his reelection a fortnight ago.

The secretary general of the United Nations, António Guterres, said the crisis recalled the Cold War, The New York Times reported, only without the controls and channels of communication established before the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union "to make sure things would not get out of control when tensions rise".

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said 60 U.S. diplomats would be expelled and the U.S. consulate in St. Petersburg would be closed in a quid pro quo response to the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration and the expulsion of Russian diplomats in the U.S. The Russian consulate in Seattle was also a target for shuttering by the U.S.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the attack.

"Russia remained and remains the largest nuclear power". Trump argued that "Getting along with Russian Federation (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing" because "they can help solve problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, ISIS, Iran and even the coming Arms Race".
