The new Russian Satan 2 rocket leaves a huge crater in its wake

Tourists and residents in eastern Russia have been warned of an ICBM test next week.

An area larger than England has been ordered to take emergency precautions as Vladimir Putin prepares to test an unspecified missile.

The last missile tested by Putin was his big monster Satan-2 in April.

Further test launches of the 208-ton 25,880 km/h hypersonic weapon, also known as the Sarmat, are scheduled for deployment this year.

Officials in the Kamchatka region warned: “We announce the upcoming opening and closing of the case area for the movement of people, equipment of all kinds, air flights and tourist groups.”

According to the announcement, the launch will take place between June 6th and 10th.

A statement said: “In the danger zone of the crash of the separating parts of the launch vehicle or its fragments, as well as in case of an emergency in the field, there are the eastern, southeastern part of the Tigilsky district, the southwestern part of the Karaginsky district and the northwestern part of the Ust -Kamchatsky District of Kamchatka Krai.”

The missile is aimed at the Kura test site.

On April 20, the Satan-2 was launched amid massive rocket flares from an underground silo at the Plesetsk military cosmodrome in northern Russia.

At the time, Putin said it would ensure Russia’s security and “those wild people trying to threaten it” think twice.

There will be “no analogue of this weapon in the world for a long time”.

Satan-2 — the height of a 14-story skyscraper — is slated for deployment later this year, but next week’s test could include several other missile types.

After the April launch, Putin’s close ally Dmitry Rogozin – head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos – highlighted the 26-foot-deep crater caused by the missile without a nuclear warhead at the Kura test site.

He said: “With a nuclear charge, such a crater in a hostile place becomes… well, very big and very deep – and radioactive.

“And not just one, but exactly as many as the most powerful nuclear missile in the world can deliver to the territory of a bitter enemy.

“And we will soon have almost 50 such Sarmats [the missile is known in the West as Satan-2] in combat use.

“It only remains to advise the aggressors to speak more politely with Russia.”

Kremlin propagandists have in recent weeks threatened the West with Satan-2, suggesting, for example, that Britain could be engulfed under a tidal wave caused by the missile.

Zvezda TV journalist Alexander Kursky said at the Kura military test site on the Kamchatka Peninsula: “This crater left by a Sarmat test launch just captures my imagination.

“No warhead, but the depth is 8 meters (26 ft) and the diameter is 20 meters (66 ft).”
