RUSSIA has released chilling new footage of its 7,000mph Zircon hypersonic nuke missile that could hit London in five minutes.
The Kremlin had previously branded the deadly weapon, which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead, “unstoppable”.
And now terrifying footage shows a Mach 9 Zircon - or Tsirkon - missile being fired, showing how the Russian President could launch a hypersonic nuclear strike on the West.
The clip showing the missile being fired from the Admiral Gorshkov frigate in the White Sea was revealed amid veiled threats Putin and his top officials to go nuclear if any country intervenes with his invasion of Ukraine.
