Russia to create new ICBM by 2018

SpaceDaily.com reports: “Russia is due to create a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) by 2018, Strategic Missile Forces commander Sergei Karakayev said on Monday. ‘Construction of the missile is ongoing,’ he said. ‘It is to be completed by 2018.’

The new missile is to replace the R-36M2 Voyevoda (NATO reporting name SS-18 Satan) missile.

So far all of Russia’s recent ICBM projects, both sea-launched (Bulava) and ground-based (Topol-M, Yars), have been solid fuel.

Karakayev said the new ICBM will have a launch mass of around 100 tons with a better payload-launch weight ratio than in a solid fuel missile. Such ICBMs can only be deployed in silos…” (While our President signs a treaty for Russia and America to reduce the number of nuclear weapons according to the New York Times, Russia has 2,000 more atomic bombs than America and are creating more continually as the headline reports.

Israel National News reports: “Russia harshly criticized new U.S. sanctions against Iran, calling them ‘overt blackmail’ and a ‘crude contradiction of international law,’ warning that relations between Washington and Moscow could significantly soar if Russian companies are affected.

President Barack Obama signed into law new sanctions on Iran’s energy, shipping and financial industries that would harm foreign companies that mine uranium with Iran or help the regime export oil by providing tankers, insurance or banking services.

‘We are talking about restrictive measures not only against Iran but also affecting foreign companies and individuals working with it, including in the hydrocarbon extraction and transport, petrochemicals, finance and insurance industries,’ the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

‘We consider efforts to … impose internal American legislation on the entire world completely unacceptable,’ it said. ‘We reject methods of overt blackmail that the United States resorts to in relation to the companies and banks of other countries.’

‘Those in Washington should take into account that our bilateral relations will suffer seriously if Russian operators … come under the effects of the American restrictions.’…”

‘Bringing together over a half of countries in the world, including mostly dynamically developing countries, the Non-Aligned Movement makes a tangible contribution in the build-up of trust and stability on the global scale,’ the president said with confidence.

‘The time proved the justice of the goal of the work in your forum that was formulated several decades ago that is the achievement of the detente of international tensions through the deideologization of the world policy and the consolidation of high humanistic ideals. I am convinced that this is a reliable basis for building a modern system of interstate relations, which would respect the right of each person for his own way of development and cultural and historical originality,’ Putin remarked…”
