Russia TV host responds to Ireland about nuclear strike on UK
Dubbed the “Satan 2”, the father of nuclear missiles in question can travel at hypersonic speeds and reach parts of Europe in seconds. Repeated claims on Russian state television brag about “wiping the UK off the map” with one single strike, as well as similar claims major US cities could suffer similar fates.
The Satan 2 is in fact an RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, weighing in at a whopping 20 tonnes.
ts range of 11,000 miles allows the missile to strike almost any target in the world and is capable of flying over the poles to reach the target quicker.
Its hypersonic speed makes the Satan 2 one of the fastest, and most indefensible weapons in the world, travelling at speeds of around 16,000 mph.
Aside from its range and speed capabilities, the Satan 2 has another potent statistic.
The mega-rocket can carry up to 15 nuclear warheads, seeing it called by Russia’s own Ministry of Defence “the most powerful missile with the longest range of destruction of targets in the world.”
Putin claims the Satan 2 can hit London within 200 seconds
Satan 2 Mapped
On Russian state TV, presenter Vladimir Solovyov chillingly said: “one Sarmat means minus one Great Britain.”
The speed of the Satan 2 is as terrifying as its destructive power.
Launching from silos in Russia, the mega-missile could hit London in just 200 seconds.
Paris would be destroyed just 210 seconds after launch.
With Finland and Sweden seeking NATO membership, an angry Russia could hit Helsinki in a mere 15 seconds with the Satan 2.
Russia’s defence committee deputy chairman, Aleksey Zhuravlyov said: “If Finland wants to join this bloc, then our goal is absolutely legitimate – to question the existence of this state.
This is logical.”
