The missile, Sarmat, was test-dropped at the northern Plesetsk spaceport.

Protest over European Missile Defense Shield The Sarmat 2 will replace the Soviet-designed Voyevoda, the world's heaviest ICBM that's known as "Satan" in the West. Newsweek reports the new ICBM is referred to by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as "Satan 2", or "Snowflake", which Putin says is a hypersonic intercontinental missile It's not as if the US didn't know about the new Sarmat 2 - Russian Federation announced back in December 2011 it was building the new ballistic missile to "preserve parity in the field".

Russia's ministry of defense tweeted a video showing the ICBM taking off.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said 60 U.S. diplomats would be expelled and the U.S. consulate in St. Petersburg would be closed in a quid pro quo response to the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration and the expulsion of Russian diplomats in the U.S. The Russian consulate in Seattle was also a target for shuttering by the U.S.

It comes after the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Britain on March 4.

The Russian military says it has successfully tested its latest intercontinental ballistic missile. The Kinzhal is a strategic air-to-surface strike missile with advanced maneuverability in flight and a top speed of Mach 10.

There are worries about the rising tension between some countries when it comes to nuclear weapons.

The Defense Ministry also released a rare video of the Sarmat test on its social media account. Do not forget, no one really wanted to talk to us.

Putin's saber-rattling with the weapons, which he accompanied in his speech with warnings that the USA had failed to "contain Russian Federation", has prompted fears of a new nuclear arms race, as China also works to develop its own next-generation weapons and President Donald Trump has spoken of massively increasing the U.S.'s nuclear arsenal.
