This is a new addition to the country’s nuclear arsenal.

Vladimir Putin says the missile will give Moscow’s enemies something to think about.

The military says the missile was launched from Plesetsk, northeast of the country, and hit a target on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Far East.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the new missile had the highest strategic and technical characteristics. It is effective against all types of modern anti-missile systems. There is no equivalent weapon in the world and it will not come for a long time.

“This unique weapon will further strengthen the combat capability of our armed forces,” he said. This will reliably ensure Russia’s security from external threats. In addition, it will provide logistics to those who try to threaten our country with offensive language.

According to the US Congressional Research Service, Sarmat is a new intercontinental ballistic missile. Russia is expected to deploy 10 or more warheads on each of these missiles.

Work has been going on for a long time to develop this missile. So the West should not be too surprised by the test launch of this missile. But the test comes at a time when geopolitical tensions are mounting over the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
