Vladimir Putin today issued a chilling reminder to the West of his burgeoning firepower as Russia builds up its military might.


In the same week, he met Donald Trump for a Helsinki summit, videos were released showing his ‘six of the best’ new cutting-edge missile systems - all part of an extensive modernisation of his armoury.

One highlighted a test launch of the Kremlin’s newest Sarmat heavy intercontinental ballistic missile with a reach across the entire planet.

The bright checkered-coated missile is seen leaving its launch silo.

The liquid-fueled, superheavy thermonuclear armed intercontinental ballistic missile is developed to replace the old SS-18 Satan missile.

The hypersonic weapon is capable of striking targets via both the North and South poles.

Putin has said this will be combat ready in 2020.

This and the other missile systems showcased today by the Russian defence ministry will “beef up our strategic forces in the foreseeable future” he promised in May.
