Russian TV hosts laughed as they discussed the option of nuking New York and said Americans are afraid of their rockets.
The appalling comments on the Russia-1 state TV channel were made by hosts who gathered to discuss Russia’s newest and most dangerous missile Satan 2.
Known also as Sarmat, Satan 2 is a new Russian intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying 12 nuclear warheads at once.
The missile, which had been in development for years, underwent its first successful test on Wednesday. As Kremlin claims, the missile can reach speeds of 16,000 mph and can reach any part of the planet.
Speaking of the deadly missile, a Russia-1 presenter giggled as hosts discussed nuking New York City.
“Americans don’t have these kinds of rockets and never had them. What is attractive about the South Pole,” one host said before another chipped in saying: “We know right away where to send it via the north pole or the south pole. We only have one target.”
The first host responded by saying: “The continental territory of the US.”
As the debate continued, a presenter said: “If 7.5 megatons will be delivered to the territory of our so-called partners – the word ‘partner’ is very important – then objects like the city of New York, a good city but it would be gone.”
While smiling, he added: “Completely gone, with one rocket. Completely, I mean completely. So it’s better we don’t. Americans always feared our heavy rockets.”
The appalling boasting comes shortly after Putin celebrate Satan 2’s first successful launch and warned that the new weapon will make countries “think twice” before threatening Russia.
