The deputy chairman of the Duma defense committee, an ally of Vladimir Putin, warned that the Satan 2 hypersonic missile would be capable of attacking the Nordic country in the blink of an eye. This Saturday, the Kremlin stopped exporting gas to its neighbor due to its interest in joining NATO.
Finland, whose president communicated this Saturday with Putin to reveal his plans to join NATO, “it would be annihilated in 10 seconds”, boasted the deputy chairman of the defense committee of the Duma, Aleksey Zhuravlyov. And he added that his country is also capable of attacking the UK in 200 seconds.
“If Finland wants to join this bloc (by NATO), our objective will be absolutely legitimate: we will question the existence of this state. It is logical,” Zhuravlyov declared, according to the British newspaper DailyMail. And he ironically: “The Finns should be grateful to Russia for its statehood, by the fact that Finland exists as a country”.
“If you threaten our state, here is the Sarmat (Satan-2 missile) for you, and there will be nuclear ashes of you if they think that Russia should not exist,” he added.
Zhuravlyov was even more graphic: “We can attack with a Sarmat from Siberia, and even reach the United Kingdom. And if we attack from Kaliningrad, the range time of the hypersonic is 200 seconds. On the Finnish border we will not have strategic weapons, but Kinzhal class, one that will reach Finland in 20 seconds, or even 10″.
