In a viral video, Russia’s thermonuclear-armed mobile intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBMs) launchers were reportedly filmed driving outside of Moscow on Friday night.
According to RT correspondent, Murad Gazdiev, “Yars” thermonuclear-armed mobile ICBM launchers were filmed driving along the ring-road outside Moscow.
The official sources claimed this is for Victory Day parade preparation for WWII in May. However, that’s two months away.
The RS-24 Yars (known in the West as SS-29)is a Russian strategic missile system comprising a mobile or silo-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with MIRVed (multiple independently targetable vehicle) warheads, Tass reported.
Last Saturday, February 19th before the Ukraine attack, Russia’s Yars intercontinental ballistic missile was launched during Russia’s strategic drills. The missile was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region at the Kura range in Kamchatka.
Vladimir Putin watched the video of the missile launched in real-time alongside with the president of neighboring Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, from what the Kremlin described as a “situation center,” New York Post reported.
