RUSSIA has threatened to nuke Britain with its Satan-2 hypersonic missile and obliterate Finland in just ten seconds.
The chilling warning has came from a senior politician and was made as the Nordic country has said it wants to join NATO in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Aleksey Zhuravlyov, 59, deputy chairman of the Russian parliament’s defence committee, said in an interview “absolutely legitimate” to “question the existence” of Finland.
He was asked if Russia now needed to station its missiles including the Sarmat – known in the West as the Satan-2 – on the border with Finland.
“What for? We don’t need to,” he replied.
“We can hit with a Sarmat from Siberia, and even reach the UK. And if we strike from Kaliningrad the hypersonic’s reaching time is 200 seconds – so go ahead, guys.”
He said other types of missiles stationed on the Finnish border “will reach Finland in 20 seconds, or even 10 seconds”.
His threats come after Russian state TV has threatened to drown the UK under a radioactive tsunami in a bizarre new propaganda video.
In the chilling broadcast a presenter also showed how the Satan 2 nuclear missile could also annihilate Britain.
Dmitry Kiselyov heralded Russia’s second option to “plunge Britain into the depths of the sea” with its “underwater robotic drone Poseidon”.
In a chilling graphic he warned the missile would raise a giant tsunami wave up to 1,640ft high.
He later predicted the surging water would contain “high doses of radiation” turning what is left of Britain into a “radioactive desert”.
The threat was stemmed from the baseless premise perpetrated by the Russian state media and that Boris Johnson had threatened to carry out a nuclear strike on Russia without consulting NATO.
The Sarmat hypersonic 208-ton ’Satan-2’ intercontinental ballistic missile has a speed of 15,880mph and is claimed by the Kremlin leader to be “unstoppable”.
Russia successfully launched the missile earlier this month with Putin warning the test was “food for thought for those who try to threaten Russia”.
A video showed the killer missile being launched from an underground silo, triggering an enormous fireball.
It travelled almost the entire length of Russia – almost 3,600 miles – in around 15 minutes and landed at Kura Missile Test Range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
The bombs are 1,000 times more powerful than those dropped by the US on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during World War Two.
