 | By Richard Ahern Vladimir Putin has raised alarm bells by announcing that Russia’s Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles, nicknamed “Satan 2”, will soon be ready for combat duty. This new missile system can carry over ten nuclear warheads with a staggering range of over 11,000 miles.

Russian President Vladimir Putin made the announcement in a speech to military academy graduates, stressing the importance of bolstering Russia’s “triad” of nuclear forces, which can be launched from land, sea, or air. According to Putin, this is critical for ensuring “Russia’s military security and global stability.”

Sarmat is a 35-meter, liquid-fueled missile that can carry at least ten re-entry vehicles — each armed with its own nuclear warhead that can be directed at a different target.

That’s not all…

The system also has the ability to deliver hypersonic Avangard glide vehicles. A hypersonic missile can travel at speeds above Mach 5 (4,000 mph) — five times the speed of sound — making them incredibly difficult to intercept. The Russian Defense Ministry labels Sarmat as the “most powerful missile” in the world.

Where will these missiles be stationed?

Dmitry Rogozin, the former head of Russia’s space agency, revealed that these missiles are slated for deployment in the Krasnoyarsk region of Siberia. The region is approximately 1,800 miles east of Moscow and is the same location where the Soviet-era Voyevoda missiles were stationed.

According to Russian officials, Sarmat is the new “super-weapon” intended to guarantee the security of future generations in Russia for the coming decades.

Are these missiles a threat to the United States and Europe?

With a staggering range of 11,000 miles, these missiles are designed to carry out nuclear strikes on targets across the globe — including the United States and Europe. The deployment has taken longer than expected, but the project is now nearing completion.

Is Putin planning a nuclear strike against Ukraine?

The deployment of the new missile system comes amid a critical point in the Russia-Ukraine war — Ukraine’s counteroffensive that aims to retake Russian-occupied territory.

So far, Ukrainian forces say they have reclaimed eight villages but have been unable to push past Russia’s main defensive line. The Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, conceded that the counteroffensive has been “slower than desired.”

Just last week, Putin mentioned that Ukrainian forces stood “no chance” in their current counteroffensive. Despite the timing of the Sarmat deployment, Putin asserted that Russia did not need to resort to nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

Ukraine has warned of a different nuclear threat:

Instead of using nuclear weapons directly, there have been concerns that a similar outcome could be achieved by attacking a nuclear power plant. One of President Zelenskyy’s top advisers, Mykhailo Podolyak, has sparked fears by claiming that Russia is plotting an attack on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

According to Podolyak, Russia aims to halt the Ukrainian counteroffensive and create a “depopulated sanitary gray zone” by striking the plant. This statement aligns with Zelenskyy’s prior warnings of Moscow’s intention to attack the nuclear facility — an accusation the Kremlin has categorically denied.
