Vladimir Putin is set to launch a ballistic missile in DAYS in the test launch after residents received a dire lockdown warning

VLADIMIR Putin is set to launch a ballistic missile in a test launch in DAYS after residents received a dire lockdown warning.

An area of ​​eastern Russia, larger than England, has been told to take emergency precautions during exercises, which are seen as a chilling warning to Ukraine and the West.

It comes as Moscow fired a hypersonic missile yesterday that destroyed a railway tunnel in Ukraine.

The missile was aimed at a route linking Slovakia with Ukraine in an attempt to stop western arms shipments.

In the planned attack, Moscow is understood to have used the powerful Kalibur hypersonic missile, which had been used in a previous launch on Ukraine’s military infrastructure in March.

It’s unclear which Russian missile will be used in the latest test run – but the latest was its big Satan 2 beast in April, and further launches of the 208-ton, 15,880-mph hypersonic weapon, also known as the Sarmat, are pending before deployment this year.

Officials of the Kamchatka region warned residents about the imminent launch, saying they would “close the fall area to movements of people, equipment of all kinds, flights and tourist groups.”

According to the announcement, the test fire is to take place between June 6th and 10th.

A statement said: “In the danger zone of the crash of the separating parts of the launcher or its fragments, as well as in case of an emergency in the field, are the eastern, south-eastern part of the Tigilsky district, the south-western part of the Karaginsky district and the north-western part of the Ust -Kamchatsky District of Kamchatka Krai.”

The missile is aimed at the Kura test site.

The last ICBM was shot down on April 20, when Satan-2 was launched amid massive missile flares from an underground silo at the Plesetsk military cosmodrome in northern Russia.

At the time, Putin said it would ensure Russia’s security and “those wild people trying to threaten it” think twice.

There will be “no analogue of this weapon in the world for a long time”.

Satan-2 — the height of a 14-story skyscraper — is slated for deployment later this year, but next week’s test could include several other rocket types.

After the April launch, Putin’s close ally Dmitry Rogozin – head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos – highlighted the 26-foot-deep crater caused by the missile without a nuclear warhead at the Kura test site.

“With a nuclear charge, such a crater in a hostile location becomes… well, very big and very deep – and radioactive.

“And not just one, but exactly as many as the most powerful nuclear missile in the world can deliver to the territory of a bitter enemy.

“And we will soon have almost 50 such Sarmats [the missile is known in the West as Satan-2] in combat use.

“It only remains to advise the aggressors to speak more politely with Russia.”

Kremlin propagandists have in recent weeks threatened the West with Satan-2, suggesting, for example, that Britain could be engulfed under a tidal wave caused by the missile.

Zvezda TV journalist Alexander Kursky said at the Kura military test site on the Kamchatka Peninsula: “This crater left by a Sarmat test launch just captures my imagination.

“No warhead, but the depth is 8 meters (26 ft) and the diameter is 20 meters (66 ft).”

It comes from a video captured at the moment when Russia attacked a railway tunnel connecting Ukraine with Slovakia.

Kalibr cruise missiles have hit the Beskydy railway tunnel in the Carpathian Mountains, reports say.

One family – with fear in their voice – recorded the attack in the Lviv region and reported that two rockets hit the area.

Ukrainian official Anton Gerashchenko and Lviv Governor Maksym Kozytskyy confirmed the attack late in the evening.

“The goal is to try to jam railroad communications and stop the supply of fuel and weapons from our allies,” he said.

Russia is also targeting a second tunnel, he said.

Russian sources said Kalibr missiles were involved in the attacks.

This type of strategic missile was previously used in the Ukraine war to destroy vital infrastructure.

In April, pictures showed Kalibr missiles being loaded onto a submarine at the naval port of Sevastopol in annexed Crimea.

The extent of the damage to the Beskydy Tunnel was unclear.

It connects Ukraine with the NATO member Slovakia and establishes a rail link between Lviv and the EU.

The first tunnel was built in 1886, a second one was inaugurated in 2018 as a gateway to Europe.

A voice can be heard on the video saying that the attack went towards Stryi and that two rockets were fired.
