Russia releases video of intercontinental ballistic missile launch

The Russian defence ministry has released video of what it says is a successful launch of a nuclear-capable missile.

The new Sarmat super-heavy intercontinental ballistic missile was launched from the Plesetsk spaceport in the north-western Arkhangelsk region and landed in the other side of Russia in the far-eastern Kamchatka peninsula.

President Putin said it was food for thought for those who try to threaten Russia.
