Russia in chilling message to the West as it stages huge nuclear missile drills

Russian president Vladimir Putin has given the green light to stage nuclear missile drills as the war-mongering nation continues to flex its military muscles.

New footage shows hypersonic ballistic missile launchers being transported through a forest in the Ivanovo region days, after Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russia's space agency Roscosmos, claimed the country has 50 new nuclear missiles.

The Yars and Topol M missiles are some of Russia's deadliest weapons, with the thermonuclear Yars missile hitting targets at 15,000mph and carrying six warheads.

Rogozin boasted Russia is set to deploy 50 of its "unstoppable" Satan-2 nukes. Standing at the colossal height of a 14-storey tower block, the 208-ton RS-28 Sarmat missile is capable of striking targets at almost 16,000mph. Carrying 15 warheads, it has the potential to obliterate the UK in a single blast.

Putin has issued various threats against the West most recently last week when he started deploying nuclear missiles towards its border with Finland.

Moscow has made it clear they will suffer the consequences of joining NATO, boasting they could wipe out Finland in "10 seconds".

Meanwhile, Putin's allies have supported his views also by issuing threats.

This week Alexander Lukashenko said the West risks World War Three by supplying weapons to Ukraine.

In a letter to the UN Secretary-General, Lukashenko said Belarus "calls on the countries of the world to unite and prevent the regional conflict in Europe from escalating into a full-scale world war!"

And last week Rogozin boasted to schoolchildren the deadly Satan-2 nuke can destroy "half of the US coast".

Rogozin made clear that the “unstoppable” Satan-2 would “take up combat duty” this autumn.

And Yury Borisov deputy premier in charge of military development said Russia could use new-age laser weapons to disrupt Western satellites or Ukrainian drones.

Borisov said the new mobile system, Peresvet, was already deployed with Moscow’s forces.
