Russia has reportedly declassified an image of a new thermonuclear-armed intercontinental missile allegedly capable of wiping out a land mass as large as Texas or France.
Dubbed the RS-28 Sarmat but known colloquially as “Satan 2,” the missile was an upgrade from the RS-36M, a nuclear weapon that originally entered service during the 1970s, according to CNBC.
What’s more, a test was conducted in August of the RS-28’s first-stage engine, the PDU-99, and according to reports the test was successful.
Given the Russians’ recent threats regarding the potential election of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, this is not good news.
“Americans voting for a president on Nov. 8 must realize that they are voting for peace on Planet Earth if they vote for Trump,” veteran Russian politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky said earlier this month, according to Reuters.
“But if they vote for Hillary, it’s war,” he continued. “It will be a short movie. There will be Hiroshimas and Nagasakis everywhere.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin has himself reportedly also made threats, warning of a potential “confrontation” were Clinton to continue prodding Russia with allegations that it has been attempting to rig the U.S. presidential election.
“Jeopardizing Russian-American relations in order to gain brownie points internally — I consider this to be harmful and counterproductive,” Putin reportedly said this week. “It’s not funny anymore. If somebody out there wants confrontation, this is not our choice but this means that there will be problems.”
Putin has reportedly also begun boosting his Baltic fleet and “is preparing for war with the West,” the U.K. Daily Express has claimed.
It felt as if the world was on the precipice of another world war, and according to the Russians the only way to prevent it was for the American people to elect GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to office.
Was this mere propaganda, or were the Russians’ threats credible? The American people must decide that for themselves.
