NATO and the United States are afraid of Russian Sarmat ballistic missiles even at the testing stage, because after their completion the guns will be on combat duty. According to PolitExpert, this declared Hero of Russia, chairman of the presidium of the all-Russian organization “Officers of Russia” Sergei Lipovoy.

He noted that Western media are now spreading information that Russia is preparing to strike with Sarmatians. Rumors arose following news that a second test launch of a ballistic missile could occur before the end of 2022.
“NATO and the US are really afraid of our Sarmats, even at the testing stage. Everyone knows: if the tests are successful, then they will be put on combat duty, ”Lipovoy emphasized.
The expert also noted that the Western-controlled media speculate on information about the tests in order to convince people that Russia is blackmailing the world with its missiles. Lipovoy believes that such a reaction from Washington is expected, since Sarmat poses a real threat to the United States.
Recall that the Sarmat combat system is a three-stage intercontinental missile with a range of 18,000 km. It can carry up to 10 large warheads and up to 16 small ones. The first successful test launch took place on 20 April.
