Russia released today disturbing new images of its hypersonic’meteorite’ missile Avangard being prepped for war, posing yet another nuclear menace to the West.
Footage shows the weapon, which can reach targets at 27 times the speed of sound, being installed in an underground launch silo in the Orenburg region of southwest Russia, close to the border with Kazakhstan.
Moscow claims that the missile with a hypersonic glide vehicle is launched outside the earth’s atmosphere and can reach any target on the planet in less than 30 minutes.
As with other Russian hypersonic missile systems, Vladimir Putin asserts that the West possesses no countermeasures.
Putin described Avangard as a “new sort of strategic weapon.” anticipated to be evaluated in 2019
Putin, shown this week, has previously asserted that the Avangard strikes ‘like a meteor’ and is ‘invincible’ – incapable of being stopped by a defense system.
Today’s deployment of the 20,000mph (32,187km/h) Avangard beast follows three consecutive days of Putin highlighting the deployment of new Yars nuclear missiles in the regions of Kaluga and Tver.
Putin spent all of Friday with his military commanders discussing the situation in Ukraine, according to the Kremlin.
The day witnessed the launch of dozens of missiles towards Ukraine, the majority of which were successfully intercepted by Kyiv’s air defenses.
Putin wanted suggestions from his commanders, such as General Sergei ‘Armageddon’ Surovikin, who is in charge of the Russian offensive as a whole.
Both defence minister Sergei Shoigu and chief of the general staff Valery Gerasimov, both of whom are rumored to be sidelined in the war, attended the president.

Russia activates its new, lethal hypersonic Avangard missile system, culminating a week of nuclear threats against the West.
Putin stated, “Comrade officers, today we will hear from the commanders of each operating area, and I’d want to hear your proposals for our immediate and intermediate–term operations.”
It is the first time in ten months that Putin, who has not yet visited the battlefield, unlike Volodymyr Zelensky, has demonstrated intimate involvement with his high command.
It is Putin’s first known visit to the combined military headquarters.
His visit comes amid new health concerns, with allegations that he is running low on missiles and preparing a New Year’s onslaught to once again attempt to seize Kiev.
