How long would it take for Russian nuclear weapons to reach European capitals? Less than 202 seconds, according to a curious simulation shown on Russian state television. Perhaps a new attempt by Russia to deter the rest of the world.
On the Russian state channel Alexei Zhuravliov, member of parliament and chairman of the Putin very favorable party Rodina, was a guest in the popular program 60 minutes† Together with presenters Olga Skabejeva and Evgeni Popov – husband and wife – he discussed Russia’s nuclear weapons. Zhuravliov was very enthusiastic about the Sarmat missiles. “One of those missiles and the United Kingdom has been wiped out,” the MP said, among other things.

During the conversation, it was simulated how long it would take for those missiles from Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave between Poland, Lithuania and the Baltic Sea, to reach three European capitals. The answer? Berlin is reached in 106 seconds, Paris in 200 seconds and London in 202 seconds. So lightning fast. To the satisfaction of the Member of Parliament. “Look at this image… And hello, the rocket is already here,” he says excitedly.
The scenario of nuclear war is what the whole world fears. Experts say it is very unlikely that it will come to that, because it could lead to complete destruction.
