Putin threatens to launch new nuclear missile by year's end, it could

Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would launch its newest intercontinental ballistic missile, which could reach the UK in 3 minutes, by the end of the year.

Russia successfully tested Sarmat or Satan II in April amid fierce fighting in Ukraine, raising the possibility of a nuclear confrontation with the West.

Just last month, the head of Roscosmo, Russia's space agency, warned the West that if they did not "talk politely" to the Kremlin, Russia would attack it with the Sarmat rocket.

Dmitry Rogozin, who is also a close ally of Putin, described Sarmat as "the most powerful nuclear missile in the world" and boasted that it could destroy "half a continent".
