Tensions continue to mount in the conflict between Russian and Ukraine.
After Vladimir Putin warned the West that his nuclear threat was “not a bluff,” a nuclear-powered Russian submarine went missing from its harbor in the Arctic.
This is no ordinary submarine.
The Russian Belgorod was carrying a “Poseidon” weapons system, which is a drone system capable of launching a nuclear bomb.
According to Russia, the bomb can create a “radioactive tsunami” to drown whole cities.
It is believed that the sub could have been deployed in the Arctic to test its weapon systems.
However, many experts say that it will be several years before it is actually operational.

Such fog can creates panic & may yield disaster.

Fox News has more on the missing sub:
A top-of-the-line Russian nuclear-powered submarine has gone missing from its harbor in the Arctic along with its rumored “doomsday weapon,” according to multiple reports.
NATO has reportedly warned members that Russia’s Belgorod submarine no longer appeared to be operating out of its White Sea base, where it has been active since July. Officials warned that Russia may plan to test Belgorod’s “Poseidon” weapons system, a drone equipped with a nuclear bomb that Russia has claimed is capable of creating a “radioactive tsunami,” according to Italian media.

MSN has more details on the weapon’s capabilities:
Belgorod is believed to be armed with “Poseidon” nuclear torpedoes that supposedly have the ability to traverse hundreds of miles underwater and induce “nuclear tsunamis” near coastal regions, Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported.
“This nuclear ‘mega torpedo’ is unique in the history of the world,” submarine expert H.I. Sutton explained on his website Covert Shores. “Poseidon is a completely new category of weapon. It will reshape naval planning in both Russia and the West, leading to new requirements and new counter-weapons.”
A massive Russian nuclear submarine reportedly has left a port which has weapons that can allegedly cause a radioactive tsunami. However, experts believe the weapon will not be operational until 2027. Newsmax's National correspondent @Logan_Ratick reports. https://t.co/sND0rKBBRd pic.twitter.com/EjyKaukqiF
