RUSSIA'S terrifying Satan-2 nuke can demolish "half of the US coast", an ally of Vladimir Putin has bragged to kids in a chilling warning to the West.
The world-ending RS-28 Sarmat missile can blast targets at almost 16,000mph, carry 15 warheads, and has the potential to obliterate an area the size of Texas in a single strike.
In the latest of a series of threats to unleash atomic weapons on the West, Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, has boasted to schoolchildren the missile will "take up combat duty" this year.
He showed videos of multiple Russian strategic rockets at a “federal educational marathon” called New Horizons before outlining the capability of the big beast intercontinental ballistic missile Satan-2.
Rogozin crowed to the youngsters: "Here you see the test launches of our missiles. The smallest are shown on Red Square parades.
“The largest will not fit on Red Square, as they are too big.
"Now you can see (on video) Topol, Yars, submarine missile Bulava and finally Sarmat.
"Such a missile [Sarmat] can demolish half of the coast of some large continent, which we may not like due to its aggressive policy."
Rogozin - who wore the space agency’s uniform - made clear that “unstoppable” Satan-2 would “take up combat duty” this autumn.
He added: "We are also producing Iskanders and hypersonic Kinzhals in our factories."
