Egyptian news vision: Russian media quoted the Defense Ministry as saying that Moscow had successfully test-fired the "Mach 8 Zircon" missile, which has a speed of 9656 kilometers per hour and is designed to protect against air attacks.

The missile was launched from the Sari-Shagan military field, which is located in Kazakhstan, and managed to hit the target in the Barents Sea after a journey of approximately 449 km.

Andrei Dyumin, senior commander of air and missile defense in the Russian Space Forces, said that the missile has practically demonstrated its capabilities after a series of tests, without revealing further details regarding the accuracy or any additional information on the capabilities of the weapon.

And the head of the US Space Forces Command, John Raymond, said in April 2020 that such Russian interceptor missiles and directed outside the Earth represent a challenge to US interests in space.

Raymond stressed the readiness of the United States to deter what he described as any "potential aggression", and the readiness to defend US allies and interests from "hostilities in space."

And the head of British Defense Intelligence revealed in September 2020 that Russia was developing a nuclear-powered missile that could fly around the Earth's atmosphere for successive years and was equipped to strike at any moment.

Explaining the threat to Britain, based on a security and defense review of the government, General Jim Hockenhole said that Russia "risks the limits of science and international treaties" in its plans to develop new weapons.

Hawkenhall indicated that Moscow "is testing a subsonic nuclear-powered cruise missile system, which has a global range, and will enable the attack from unexpected directions," according to the British newspaper, The Telegraph.

Depending on the source of its nuclear power, the new Russian missile has an open time to fly over the target before hitting it, unlike other missiles that have a fixed time.

According to British newspapers, General Hockenhall is referring to the new Russian "9M730 Borovestink" missile.

An explosion in August 2019, at the Nyonoksa military base, northwestern Russia, may have been caused by the failure of the 9M730 Borovestink missile.

The accident caused a sharp 30-minute rise in radiation levels in nearby Severodvinsk, killing 7 people.
