러시아는 곧 50 ’14-storey high’ Satan-2 nukes capable of reducing Western enemies into ‘radioactive craters’, Putin’s space agency chief says in new threat
러시아 will soon have 50 brand new nuclear missiles capable of reducing all enemies to a nuclear crater, the head of the country’s space agency has warned.
드미트리 로고진, the head of Roscosmos and a staunch 푸틴 ally, said dozens of new Sarmat-2 missiles – 자질 14 storeys tall and weighing 208 톤 – will be deployed by autumn to menace Russia’s enemies.
‘It remains only to advise the aggressors to talk more politely with Russia,’ 그는 말했다.
As a demonstration of Sarmat’s power, he showed off footage of a 26ft deep and 66ft wide hole caused by one of the missiles when fired without a warhead.

그는 말했다: ‘With a nuclear charge, such a crater at an enemy site will be…well, very large and very deep – and radioactive.
‘And not just one, but exactly as many as the most powerful nuclear missile in the world will deliver to the territory of a fierce enemy.
‘And we will soon have almost 50 such Sarmats [the missile is known in the West as Satan-2] on combat duty.
‘It remains only to advise the aggressors to talk more politely with Russia.’
로고진, a former deputy prime minister and Putin super-loyalist, has made several recent threats of nuclear strikes against the West involving Satan-2.
For his latest threat, he used footage from Russian TV channel Zvezda, run by the Defence Ministry.
The Satan-2 missile is the height of a 14-storey tower block and weighs 208 톤, say the Russians.
The intercontinental ballistic missile has a range of 11,200 miles and can strike at targets at 15,880mph after flying in outer space or via the north or south poles.
Russia has increasingly resorted to nuclear threats against the West over its support for Ukraine, as the tide of war has turned against Putin’s forces (사진, a Sarmat-2 test)
Zvezda TV journalist Alexander Kursky said at the Kura military test site on the Kamchatka peninsula: ‘This crater left by a Sarmat test launch just strikes my imagination.
‘No warhead, but the depth is 8 미터 (26ft) and diameter 20 미터 (66ft).’
로고진 – who is in charge of Russia’s part in the International Space Station – last week boasted to schoolchildren and students that Satan-2 could demolish ‘half the coast of a continent’ of a Western enemy ‘which we may not like due to its aggressive policy’.
Two weeks ago Rogozin threatened to expunge Ukraine from the map and destroy the West in half an hour.
‘NATO is waging a war against us,’ 그는 당시에 말했다. ‘They didn’t announce it, but that doesn’t change anything. Now it’s obvious to everyone.’
The 58-year-old Putin crony said: ‘In a nuclear war, NATO countries will be destroyed by us in half an hour.
‘But we must not allow it, because the consequences of the exchange of nuclear strikes will affect the state of our Earth.
Sarmat-2 is currently being produced by Russia and will be deployed in the Siberia region by autumn, where it will be capable of ranging most of the planet (사진, a Yars missile currently deployed in the same region)

'따라서, we will have to defeat this economically and militarily more powerful enemy with conventional armed means.’
He urged Putin to go further to win the war – 와
‘mobilisation of the state economy.’
Industry must be forced to serve military objectives, 그는 말했다.
‘This must be done immediately and quickly,’ 그는 말했다.
Using a word that Putin has banned in relation to Ukraine – ‘war’ – 그는 말했다: ‘This is a war for the truth – and the right of Russia to exist as a single and independent state.’
그는 주장했다: ‘The very existence of a Ukraine separate from Russia will inevitably turn it into anti-Russia and a springboard of the West for aggression against our people.
‘That is why what we call a Special Military Operation goes far beyond its original meaning and geography.’
