Evgeny Buzhinsky, the retired Russian leader, called for Britain to attack the Neptune underwater missile if it threatened NATO forces in Ukraine. According to Russian state media, if they used nuclear missiles, it would cause a tsunami of up to 300 meters.
Buzhinsky, now president of the Russian Center for Policy Research, said that Britain would “definitely not” if Russia attacked it with a nuclear missile.
Evgeny Buzhinsky also threatened an attack on the UK with a nearly 14-inch Sarmat 2 missile, Russia’s largest nuclear weapon.
Buzhinsky, in his participation in the program of the Russian state television channel Rossiya 1, stated that the hypersonic missile “will be used in combat operations” after several tests.
A Russian general reiterated the power of a nuclear weapon, saying that Neptune would cause a tsunami with 300-meter radioactive waves.
These warnings come as Putin’s propagandists discuss Russia’s military options after it failed to make significant progress on its invasion of Ukraine.
How is Neptune? This is Russia’s big nuclear weapon
The Neptune is a combination of torpedoes, missiles and drones. The Russian government ensures that this consists of a 19-meter tube and about 2 meters in diameter, which can be transferred by specially adapted submarines.
Once launched, the drone operates and can be directed to its remote target. Its main tube is known to contain a nuclear reactor, which gives the drone a theoretically infinite range.
The Neptune is capable of traveling at 185 kilometers per hour, which theoretically gives it the ability to outrun any torpedo that can destroy it.
This can also be given in 1 km, which also put extra torpedoes. The exact yield of its nuclear warhead is still unknown, although it is believed to be up to 100 megatons.
Neptune can travel up to 185 kilometers per hour.
Russia plans to impose prison terms for critics of armed groups like Wagner
Russian lawmakers on Tuesday approved a bill that would impose stiff penalties of up to 15 years in prison for criticizing Wagner’s armed groups.
The move builds on rules previously adopted after Russian troops were sent into Ukraine, which Kremlin opponents say are designed to target critical criminal conflicts.
Armed groups like Wagner, who claim to be leading the Russian siege of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, have raised their public image in recent months.
“From today, people who risk their lives to protect us and our citizens are kept safe from harassment and lies,” Vyacheslav Volodin, the president of Russia’s lower house, said in a statement.
The bill still needs to be approved by the upper legislature and has been approved by President Vladimir Putin.
Punishments in the laws passed by the diplomats also lasted after the February 24 start of Russia’s operation in Ukraine.
