The short video said the missile - nicknamed "Satan 2" - was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russian Federation.

The video relayed the Satan 2 missile was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia, CNN reported.

The Voevoda missile, the world's heaviest ICBM, is known as "Satan" in the West, The Associated Press reported Friday.

The RS-28 Sarmat is said to be capable of carrying up to 10 or 15 nuclear warheads and flying at supersonic speed.

In his annual address to parliament on March 1, President Vladimir Putin said Russian Federation has begun testing Sarmat which has "practically no range limits" and can penetrate any missile shield.

"No kind of, not even future missile defense systems will offer any trouble to the Russian rocket complex, Sarmat", Putin said in his state of the nation speech. His country test-launched a missile that's been named "Satan 2" by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and Russia's Foreign Ministry released the footage for all to witness.

The Russian military will start producing the missile in 2020 and induct it into service by 2021, TASS reported.

Russian Federation has successfully tested its latest intercontinental ballistic missile, the country's military said on Friday.

SoftBank builds world's largest solar power plant
The solar project will provide 100,000 jobs to people and it will also increase Saudi's gross domestic product by $12 billion. Prince Mohammed stated: "It's a huge step in human history", adding "It's bold, risky and we hope we succeed doing that".

Experts have said Putin's claims about the missile were hyperbolic, given that Russia's current Voyevoda-class ICBMs can already easily overwhelm the U.S.' missile defenses, as they could have in the Cold War.

Shortly after last week's call, Trump defended his decision to congratulate Putin from critics who have accused the longtime Russian leader of undermining democracy at home and overseas.

As of now, the White House has not officially reacted to this footage.
