AMID British dithering over how best to respond to the poisonings in Salisbury Vladimir Putin put on a defiant show of massive Russian strength today launching an ‘unstoppable’ Kinzhal nuclear missile.
The Russian ministry of defence announced a MiG-31 interceptor jet successfully made a training launch of the terrifying new hypersonic missile in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The test launch comes just days after the Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Russia had developed a terrifying array of nuclear weapons that can reach anywhere in the world and are “invulnerable to enemy interception”.
President Putin previously boasted to the Russian Federal Assembly that Moscow had developed missiles that no other nation possesses and today’s hypersonic missile – dubbed the “dagger” – is designed to destroy surface and waterborne targets at speeds of up 7,700mph (12,390km/h) across 1,250 miles (2,012 km).
Russia also said that UK’s defences would wither against the might of its Kinzhal hypersonic missile.
