Top allies of Russia's despotic President Vladimir Putin have threatened to blow up a giant supervolcano in the United States with a nuclear missiles.
Today (February 24) marks exactly one year since the Russian despot demanded troops invade neighbouring Ukraine.
And despite most Western nations ramping up its support for Ukraine, it appears that some of Putin's best mates are going all out in support of the former KGB agent.

One of those is Kremlin-loving Vladimir Solovyov, who claims to be a military expert.
He was speaking on Russian television last night (February 23) and claimed that the feared Sarmat missile could reach the United States.
The RS-28 Sarmat, also comfortingly known as Satan II, is a massive nuclear warhead, measuring around 35.5 metres in length.
It was put into service just last year, but has yet to be used.
However, Solovyov has called on Putin to use it against the United States.

He said: “Sarmat is a special weapon that can deliver a large number of nuclear warheads at once.
“It is impossible to build an all-looking defence system, which means that the United States is vulnerable, that is the first point.
“And the second point is that the Sarmat poses a threat to the most feared facility on US territory, the Yellowstone volcano.”

The Yellowstone volcano, found in the Rocky Mountain range in Wyoming, US, last erupted around 640,000 years ago – but it is far from dormant.
It has had three supereruptions across 2.1 million years, and is surrounded by hot springs and hot spots.
One such hot sport, the Yellowstone Plateau, shows light and hot magma flowing from the volcano in the area around it.

If it did erupt, it is thought that the effects of it would be felt worldwide, with falling ash hitting across the globe, and a “short-term change to the global climate” impacting on everyone, the United States' Government said.
Throwing a nuclear missile into that is thought to make the devastation even far worse.
