Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a dire and ominous warning, threatening the Western nations that any attack on Russia could lead to complete nuclear devastation.
During a recent speech critical of the United States, Putin proudly showcased Russia's formidable missile arsenal, specifically highlighting the "Satan-2" and "Flying Chernobyl," asserting their readiness for deployment. These remarks coincide with escalating tensions between Russia and Western nations, notably with the ongoing Ukraine conflict, according to RadarOnline.com.
The Russian dictator emphasized that his nation's most potent missiles, namely the "Satan-2" and "Flying Chernobyl," are primed for deployment, delivering a menacing warning and displaying overt aggression towards the West.
At a conference in Sochi, Putin said, "From the moment the launch of missiles is detected, no matter where it comes from — from any point of the world ocean or from any territory — such a number, so many hundreds of our missiles appear in the air in a retaliatory strike that there is no chance of survival there will be no single enemy left, and in several directions at once," RadarOnline.com reported.
He went on to warn that any threats against Russia by the U.S. are “absolutely unacceptable for any potential aggressor.”
Putin also hinted at the possibility of Russia withdrawing from the nuclear test ban treaty, even though the Daily Mail reported that Russia may have already conducted a test in the Arctic involving the Burevestnik missile.
The Burevestnik missile, commonly referred to as the "Flying Chernobyl," is hailed as a transformative weapon boasting an unlimited range. This low-altitude "stealth" cruise missile is believed to be incapable of interception by current Western air defense systems. Putin has called it a “radically new type of weaponry” with limitless range and maneuvering capabilities, RadarOnline.com reported.
According to sources, 13 known tests have been conducted on the Flying Chernobyl and all of them have failed. One of the tests led to the deaths of seven people, which Putin called them “national heroes.”
