Russian head of state Vladimir Putin, who is at war with Ukraine, has said that if his country is in danger, they will use nuclear weapons.

Although Russian attacks on Ukraine have been going on for more than a year, Moscow has announced a successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile. The ballistic missile test came after Russian President Vladimir Putin recently deployed nuclear weapons in Belarus to counter the “Western threat.” The Russian Defense Ministry said that the purpose of the launch was “to test promising combat weapons of intercontinental ballistic missiles.”

The Russian Defense Ministry announced a “successful” test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The agency said in a statement that the rocket was launched from the Kapustin Yar test site in the Astrakhan region in southern Russia.

“The purpose of the launch was to test the advanced combat equipment of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the ministry said in a statement. This launch confirmed the correctness of the design and technical solutions used in the development of new strategic missile systems.” it was said.

According to the agency, the missile hit the target at the Sary-Shagan training ground in Kazakhstan.

On the other hand, since sending troops to Ukraine last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin has implicitly warned that if Russia were in danger, it might use nuclear weapons.

In late February, Putin announced that Moscow was suspending participation in the New START Agreement, in which Russia and the United States agreed to limit and mutually review nuclear arsenals.

Last week, Russia announced the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in neighboring Belarus. However, both moves drew condemnation from NATO.

On the other hand, the Russian Defense Ministry has not made any statements about the type of missile tested. In February, Putin announced that a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile would be deployed this year.
