Superpower Russia stunned the whole world on Saturday by practicing rain of super-destructive missiles from land, air and sea amid the ongoing tension in Ukraine. Russian missiles included conventional missiles as well as two hypersonic missiles, which no country in the world has yet to break. These Russian missiles are capable of dropping nuclear bombs in any corner of the world, so that any city can be turned into a pile of ash in an instant.
The country’s President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian dictator Lukashenko were also present in the Kremlin during this nuclear power demonstration of Russia. At the beginning of this exercise, Russia fired missiles from a Russian base located in the northwestern region of the country. A few seconds later, another missile was launched with the help of a submarine in the Barents Sea. Both these missiles hit their target located thousands of kilometers away. These missiles did not have explosives so there was no casualty.

In addition, Russian troops fired Iskander ground-based cruise missiles from the Kapustin Yar test site in southern Russia. The Russian Defense Ministry released a video showing how MiG-31 aircraft hit ground targets with the Kinzhal hypersonic missile. The RS-24 Yars Thermonuclear Intercontinental Ballistic Missile was also seen during the test. The Russian presidential office said all missiles were successful in hitting their targets.
