It can carry 480 kg of explosives with itself. This missile attacks its target at 10 times the speed of sound.
Russia is raining gunpowder on Ukraine with nuclear bombers
Russia also showed models of its three nuclear bombers to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, armed with nuclear bombs. These three models Tu-160, Tu-95 and Tu-22M3 were shown. With the help of these bombers, Russia is continuously raining missiles on Ukraine. The Russian Defense Minister said that this nuclear bomber can fly from Moscow to Japan and then also return. Let us tell you that both Russia and North Korea are under tension with Japan. Kim Jong Un wanted to know how it fires missiles. The Russian official told Kim that these strategic bombers are a major part of Russia’s nuclear force.
Meanwhile, Kim Jong Un can visit Vladivostok during the day on Saturday to inspect the naval ship included in Russia’s Pacific Fleet. Oleg Kozhemyako, the governor of Russia’s Primorsky region, announced Kim’s arrival in the city of Artyom, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Vladivostok. The governor released a video on a messaging app, showing Kim smiling as she disembarked from a green-and-yellow train as school children gave her flowers. After reaching Artyom, Kim reached Vladivostok airport, where Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and other military officials showed him bomber aircraft and other warplanes capable of carrying out nuclear strikes.
Kim Jong Un liked Russian weapons
North Korea’s official media said in a report on Saturday that Kim was ‘extremely impressed’ after seeing the factory manufacturing Russia’s state-of-the-art war planes. Kim’s visit follows talks between him and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Vostochny Spaceport on Wednesday and his visit to an aircraft manufacturing plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur on Friday. Kim reached Russia on Tuesday in his armored train. He visited many sites related to weapons and technology.
Western countries have imposed many sanctions on Russia and North Korea and have isolated them. Experts believe that both the countries are deepening bilateral relations amid increasing tension with America. The US and its allies are concerned that Kim could provide weapons to Moscow amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and that North Korea could receive advanced technology from Russia in return.
