Putin’s ‘Satan’ Is Ready! Russia Will Deploy Its First Sarmat Ballistic Missiles By End Of 2022 – Vladimir Putin
Vladimir Putin has said that Russia will deploy its Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) by the end of 2022. Putin made the comments during a televised meeting with military academy graduates, according to reports.
“It is planned that by the end of the year, the first such complex will be on combat duty,” Putin told the graduates, referring to the Russian-developed ICBMs that are capable of carrying 10 or more nuclear warheads and decoys.
Earlier, Col. Gen. Sergei Karakaev, Commander of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces claimed that Sarmat missiles can fly over the North and South Poles and along other trajectories.
“Due to the power-to-weight ratio of the new missile system, the trajectory has the ability to change. From our notorious trajectory through the North Pole, if necessary, it is possible to lay a trajectory through the South Pole, which, in principle, is not protected today. And there are also possibilities for other trajectories – in terms of the possibility of launching into outer space,” Karakaev told the Zvezda TV channel.
He added that, in the coming decades, it will be hardly possible to create means of intercepting Sarmat. “Today, they say that air defense does not exist for the Sarmat missile system, and it probably will not exist in the coming decades,” Karakaev predicted.
