Putin warns that his terrifying new Satan II missiles, capable of carrying TEN nuclear bombs, will be deployed for combat duty ‘in the near future’
- Satan II missiles can reportedly reach the UK in just three minutes from Russia
- Putin told military graduates at the Kremlin Palace that they are on combat duty.
Vladimir Putin warned today that his terrifying new Satan II missiles, which are capable of carrying ten nuclear weapons, will be deployed for combat duties in the “near future.”
The Russian leader threatened the West with his new 208-tonne nuclear Satan-II doomsday rocket, a massive beast, while speaking to military graduates at the Grand Kremlin Palace.
The giant missile, which can supposedly reach the UK in just three minutes and is known to the Russians as the Sarmat, has experienced embarrassing delays in its development.
But Putin said the launch pads for the 15,880mph ‘unstoppable’ rocket, the size of a 14-story tower, will be put into ‘combat duty’.
It is said to be the longest-range ICBM in the world, capable of hitting a target 11,200 miles away. Carrying ten or more nuclear warheads is enough to wipe out territories the size of England or France in a single strike.

The Russian leader threatened the West with his new 208-tonne Satan-II nuclear doomsday rocket while speaking to military graduates at the Grand Kremlin Palace.
The dictator also claimed that his ‘special military operation’ to invade Ukraine has given Russian forces ‘invaluable experience’.
He forgot to mention the several hundred thousand deaths and injuries he has caused by going to war.
“The most important goal here is the development of the nuclear triad, which is the key guarantee of Russia’s military security and global stability,” the warmonger Putin said in a chilling message.
“Almost half of our Strategic Missile Force units are equipped with the newest Yars complexes,” he boasted.
The troops are being re-equipped with modern missile systems with the Avangard hypersonic warhead.
‘In the near future the first Sarmat launch pads [Satan-2] with a new heavy missile it will be put into combat duty.
‘The arsenals of the aviation and naval components of the strategic nuclear forces are being replenished.
“In January 2023, the Admiral Gorshkov frigate entered combat duty… equipped with the latest Zircon hypersonic missiles.”
Russia has claimed its most powerful nuclear missile, the 16,000mph hypersonic ‘Satan-2’, can destroy the UK.
The giant missile, which can supposedly reach the UK in just three minutes and is known as the Sarmat to the Russians, has experienced embarrassing delays in its development.
Putin’s ‘chief propagandist’ Dmitry Kiselyov has previously threatened to drown Britain twice in a radioactive tidal wave using a Satan-2 missile.
Putin clearly intended his message to threaten the West.
However, Satan-2’s warning can be seen as bluff.
It is the latest of many statements by Russian officials that the rocket is ready for deployment.
The expected tests of the Armageddon weapon with multiple nuclear warheads have apparently not occurred.
It missed an earlier rollout deadline of late 2022, while some reports suggest a failed test launch in February.
In June 2022, Putin said that he would place the first batch of missiles into combat service by the end of the year.
More than a year ago, former Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin, seen as a close Putin ally, said nearly 50 mass-produced Satan-2 missiles would soon be on combat duty.
Around the same time, a major ICBM test was scheduled and locals near the Kura test range were warned to stay away from the target site in remote Kamchatka.
But this test never happened.
On June 25, Rogozin boasted: “We are absolutely on time, now we are preparing for the second flight test of the Sarmat.”
The following month, Putin fired Rogozin for unknown reasons.
Defense analysts who suspect hypersonic hyperbole have pointed out that Russia’s R-36M2 Voevoda missile was tested no fewer than 17 times before it was put into combat duty.

Is there any defense against ICBMs?
Several countries maintain anti-missile systems whose objective is to shoot down or destroy missiles before they can reach their intended targets.
But these systems are generally only effective against a small number of missiles, which travel well below hypersonic speeds.
The advent of hypersonic missile technology and long-range ICBMs, such as Russia’s latest Sarmat missile, has made anti-missile systems largely redundant.
The US Center for Arms Control and Nonproliferation said that “despite decades of research, development and testing, there is no reliable and effective anti-missile system to counter intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).”
Existing missile defense systems, such as the US Patriot system, can target incoming short-, medium-, and intermediate-range ballistic missiles whose threat is localized in a region, but cannot effectively protect against nuclear-capable ICBMs like the Sarmat that can deploy warheads over vast areas.
According to former Assistant Secretary of Defense and Senior US Weapons Evaluator Philip Coyle: “All missile defense systems can be overwhelmed… Only if the attack is limited can the defense hope not to be overwhelmed “.
In the early 2000s, the US began work on developing a specialized system designed to intercept ICBMs, known as the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system.
This aims to use a range of sensors and radars, based in locations around the world and in space, to detect ICBM launches and destroy them outside the Earth’s atmosphere, before the warheads have a chance to return. Get in and achieve your goals.
But the program is wildly expensive and has produced extremely poor results, even in perfectly scripted tests.
