In a new ‘message’ aimed at the West, Russia on Wednesday test-launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile, the Sarmat, according to Interfax citing the Russian defense ministry.

President Vladimir Putin said in a statement that accompanied the announcement that the new Sarmat missile will provide “food for thought for those who try to threaten Russia.” He congratulated the armed forces on the successful test launch. According to another translation, he said that the Sarmat will “make the madmen who attempt to threaten Russia think.”

“Sarmat is the most powerful missile with the biggest hitting range in the world. It will significantly strengthen the combat power of the Russian strategic nuclear armed forces,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The test took place in Russia’s far north, reportedly at the Plesetsk spaceport which lies about 800 km north of Moscow.

According to a state media description, “The missile was developed as a replacement for the ICBM R-36M2 (NATO Reporting Name SS-18 Satan). It is expected to be effective in destroying enemy strategic targets around the globe with kinetic impact energy and without the use of the nuclear warhead.”

The Kremlin released footage of the Wednesday launch of the “Satan”…

Lately, there’s been widespread speculation over whether Putin would be “willing” to use tactical nukes in Ukraine – something which Foreign Minister Lavrov categorically rejected in Tuesday’s statements.

On Tuesday Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was asked in an interview with India Today about the possibility of using nukes, to which he responded that Russia will only use conventional weapons in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, in another alarming development picked up by Russian observers…

And in Washington…

      The world appears to have turned upside down as the USA is now the evil empire while Russia is merely protecting herself. That is one example of this resetfucking we are now receiving from the globalist scum and traitor political minions. I really don’t believe these psychopaths care if the ICBMs fly or not.

        Actually, the globalists/neo-cons could accept a limited n*ke strike, preferably on a few US targets because the US likely has a policy to absorb a first strike without striking back, and the limited strike against only a few targets would be sufficient to place the US in extreme chaos. Whereas not in Russia because it would immediately go to full n*ke mobilization, and the globalists/neo-cons know it. Globalists/neo-cons despise European heritage and despise Christian based civilization. Russia and the US are the most powerful countries in the world, both are majority European heritage and Christian. The globalists and their company and their kind have been maneuvering a long time to nurture enmity between us, to stoke animosity, to encourage belligerence, to continuously undermine relations, and want to see both destroyed. The globalists/neo-con ideal scenario is to see Russia and the US bring down each other but their complex plans have to work out perfectly or else the whole thing will go out of their control. Unfortunately, the globalists with neo-cons have powerful influence in the US. This entire mess in Ukraine was orchestrated to bring about the present situation.

      We now have a clear timetable for the war in Ukraine.

      By May 8 Putin will do like George W Bush and declare victory. Russia will then consolidate what territory it has from that point forward.

      By the Fall Russia will point its Satan 2 ICBMs at the UK. At this point the UK will stop providing any military assistance to Ukraine. And then you will see the war wind down.

      After that there will be negotiations and Ukraine will be carved up between the EU, Russia, Poland etc.
