Putin readies combat nuke for LAUNCH as Yars missile able to strike UK and US is locked and loaded in silo near Moscow
The intercontinental ballistic missile with a 7,500 mile range was installed in a silo launch pad using a special transport and loading unit.
Putin was seen in late October overseeing the launch of a similar Yars nuclear missile on a mock attack on the West amid high tension in the war with Ukraine.
In the drills, Russia reportedly practised its response to a Western nuclear attack and were aimed at targeting the UK and US.
Fears are have been raised that the 70-year-old tyrant could detonate a nuke
as his forces face mounting loses in the disastrous Ukraine war.
MESSAGE TO THE WEST
Russia is building up to more nuclear showboating as it marks the annual Strategic Missile Forces Day on 17 December.
Missile force commander Colonel Alexei Sokolov made clear the latest exercise was aimed at sending a message to the West, with both the UK and US within range.
“The importance of this operation lies in the fact that the missile will be put on combat duty on schedule,” he said.
“The homeland will get another nuclear missile weapon, which will make it possible to solve any tasks at the strategic level.”
Lets hope it never gets to that.
