Russia's Strategic Rocket Force Tests Ejection of Deadly Sarmat Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

Missile defense is a notoriously unreliable business, and Russia's nuclear arsenal is nearly certainly already capable of surpassing or overwhelming US missile defenses.

The missile, Sarmat, was test-dropped at the northern Plesetsk spaceport.

The RS-28 Sarmat is created to replace the Soviet-era Voevoda ICBM, known by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation designation SS-18 Satan.

He added that Sarmat can carry over 10-15 nuclear warheads, which are more powerful than the ones on Satan and it is capable of flying at supersonic speed.

Russia's military said this was the second time it has successfully test-launched a Sarmat.

Russian president Vladimir Putin said earlier this month that the new Sarmat missile system would render any US missile defense system "useless" and warned the west that it had "failed to contain Russia" in remarks to lawmakers and political elites.

Putin has made much of developing such "invincible" systems as a counter to costly U.S. missile defense programs.

Russia's military has conducted a second test of its new intercontinental ballistic missile, which President Vladimir Putin claims "can reach any point in the world".

The first launch of this rocket took place in December 2017.

Shortly after last week's call, Trump defended his decision to congratulate Putin from critics who have accused the longtime Russian leader of undermining democracy at home and overseas.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said 60 U.S. diplomats would be expelled and the U.S. consulate in St. Petersburg would be closed in a quid pro quo response to the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration and the expulsion of Russian diplomats in the U.S. The Russian consulate in Seattle was also a target for shuttering by the U.S.

As of now, the White House has not officially reacted to this footage.
