Watch: Russia test launches new intercontinental ballistic missile

Russian MoD: Drop Test of Newest Heavy ICMB Successfully Conducted

The missile, which was first test-fired in December 2017, was launched from the Plesetsk spaceport in northern Russian Federation.

The new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile underwent an ejection test at the Plesetsk state test cosmodrome.

The liquid fuel, intercontinental missile known as "Sarmat" is the same one that Russian President Vladimir Putin said in March could reach anywhere in the world.

Russia's ministry of defense tweeted a video showing the ICBM taking off. In response, the Kremlin announced it would expel 60 American diplomats and close the us consulate in St. Petersburg, Fox News reported.

Russia's military said this was the second time it has successfully test-launched a Sarmat.

It comes after the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Britain on March 4.

Putin has made much of developing such "invincible" systems as a counter to costly U.S. missile defense programs.

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.

The test is highly provocative, given the growing tensions with the United States.

Putin also said Sarmat could carry an array of warheads capable of dodging missile defenses.

The White House said in a statement that it knows Russian Federation has been developing "destabilizing weapons systems for over a decade in direct violations of its treaty obligations", Fox News said. "No one listened before, so listen to Russian Federation now", Putin said.

U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly told Putin during a congratulatory phone call after Putin's election win last week that "if you want to have an arms race we can do that, but I'll win", sources told NBC News.
