As things get hotter between Russia and NATO, Vladimir Putin keeps waving his nuclear dick around. As his armed forces plan to conduct massive nuclear war maneuvers, yesterday they successfully tested their new Bulava ("Mace") intercontinental nuclear missile. And more launches are coming.
According to Reuters, the missile was successfully launched on Wednesday with dummy nuclear heads. The Red Fleet's Commander-in-Chief Admiral Viktor Chirkov said that it blasted off from the White Sea, hitting its objective in the Russian Federation's far east minutes later. The Bulava can travel for 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) to rain nuclear death in the form of six to ten warheads.
And here I was thinking that the time of nuclear fear was over.
