While Borisov did not elaborate on the nuclear missile’s potential, Putin’s crony Dmitry Kiselyov warned former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last year that the Satan-2 would be able to wipe out the U.K. in a single attack.
“The island is so small that one Sarmat missile is enough to drown it once and for all,” Kiselyov said in 2022. “It is capable of destroying an area the size of Texas or England. A single launch, Boris, and there is no England anymore. Once and for all.”
The Satan-2 was 116 feet in length and could travel nearly 16,000mph, all while being outfitted with 15 light nuclear warheads.
