Vladimir Putin launches ‘Satan-2’ missile in chilling warning to ‘those who threaten Russia’
Vladimir Putin has delivered a chilling warning claiming Russia has successfully launched an enormous intercontinental ballistic missile known as ‘Satan-2’.
The Kremlin war-mongering president bragged that the new Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile would give anyone thinking of threatening Moscow “food for thought”.
He believed no country on the planet is capable of stopping the newly-tested weapon, which experts calculate is capable of firing more than 10 nuclear warheads at a time.
Russia’s ministry of defense says the weapon was launched at the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the northwest of the country, and successfully hit targets in the far east.
The missile was seen emerging amid huge rocket flames and smoke from an underground silo in a video released by Moscow.

‘Buzzed’ Scots thugs tied up elderly women during terrifying home robbery
A pair of thugs were described as “buzzed up” after a terrifying robbery at the home of two elderly women.
Brandon Boyd and Conor Clark smashed into the farmhouse in Dumfries and tied up Margaret Muir, 89, and 69 year-old Mary Copmartin.
The masked duo stole jewellery, watches, cash and mobile phones from the pensioners.
Boyd, 26, and Clark, 27, had initially denied involvement in the crime during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.
But, they changed their pleas after Calvin Patterson, 24, – who had charges dropped – came into the witness box and told how he had effectively been the getaway driver for the pair.
