This Russian Nuclear Weapon Is 2000 Times Stronger Than The Bomb That Hit Hiroshima

It looks like another cold war is on the horizons with the battle in Syria and Iraq getting worse each day and in the process, expanding the cleavage between the world powers. It has also triggered,increased the insecurity between the enemies fighting or covertly secretly
supporting the fighters in Syria and Iraq, triggering over the top defensive measures against each other and a serious concern for another arms race.


And supporting this argument is the recent news of the Russian army announcing a massive new nuclear weapon. The new nuclear bomb comes with RS-28 Sarmat missile which has the ability of travelling at a speed of 4.3 miles per second while carrying over 40 megatons of nuke explosives. For its destructive capabilities, NATO termed the missile “Satan 2”. The weapon is considered to be capable of devastating an area of the size of France and iit is also  2,000 times more power than the bombs that ravaged Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
The missile is reported to have a range of 6,213 miles (10,000 km), which means that the missile is capable of hitting London and other European countries as well as the American west and east coasts.

The Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau, Russia said in a statement:    
 "in agreement with the Decree of Russian Government 'on the state Defence Order for 2010 and the planning period 2012-2013', the Makeyev ROcket Design Bureau was instructed to start the design and the development of work on the Sarmat."
                           Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced the upgrade of their older weaponry with Satan 2 and its 16 nuclear warheads at a time where international tensions are rising, and the smell of distrust and betrayal has fused with the stench of Arab carcases to create a deadly aroma. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has already criticised Putin for “discouraging the West’s efforts to give a political settlement in Syria.” The tensions further worsened when both Britain and the United States Governments announced that they would be sending supplies and troops for a NATO army build-up on the Russian border.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stotenberg justified the beefing up,
“This month alone, Russia has deployed nuclear-capable Iskander missiles to Kaliningrad and suspended a weapons-grade plutonium agreement with the United States.”
Testing of the Sarmat missile has already started near Miass in Russia, and the Russian Defence Ministry aims to put Sarmat ready for action as soon as late 2018.
