The Zircon missile, the most fearsome Russian weapon
It is considered one of the Russia’s deadliest weapons, the Tsirconalso known as 3M-22 Zircon o 3M-22 Tsirkon, a Russian-made hypersonic cruise missile designed to neutralize major naval units including aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers. The president Vladimir Putinin presenting it, had defined the supermissile tests “a great event in the life of the country. Considered capable of intercepting both marine and land targets at a distance of not less than 1,000 km away, the weapon, available to Russian armed forces, can travel at speeds close to Mach 9 and at altitudes between 30 and 40 km where the air is thinner and the friction less. This is yet another Tsirkon test. The “inaugural” launch was carried out in January 2020 by the frigate Admiral Gorshkov in the Barents Sea, during which the missile hit a target over 500 kilometers away in the Northern Urals. One of the most impressive tests was that of October 4, 2021, with the launch from a Yasen-class K-560 Severodvinsk submarine. Due to its performance, Zircon is believed to be invulnerable to anti-aircraft systems in use on naval units of the Western Armed Forces, since the time span between detection, engagement and reaction would be insufficient to build any defense. The first order was signed by the Russian armed forces in the summer of 2021, while series production began in November of the same year.

Ukraine: Moscow closes Kherson borders with areas of Kiev
Russia has closed the borders of the Kherson region with the areas of Ukraine controlled by the Kiev regime “for security reasons”. This was said to Ria Novosti by Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the military-civil administration of the region. “Crossing the border from the Mykolaiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions is very dangerous, given the systematic bombing of Ukrainian militants. After the last bombing, civilians who ended up in the buffer zone have died. Therefore, we do not recommend going to Ukraine, there are many reports that men disappear and are immediately brought into the army there as cannon fodder, “he said. During the special operation, the Russian army took control of Kherson Oblast and Azov’s part of Zaporozhye Oblast.
