Russia is testing its new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the second time on Friday, the country's defense ministry said in a tweet.
It's the second test of Sarmat. The first took place in the end of last year.

Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled details of the missile in March. At the time, the ICBM said "can reach any point in the world." The ICBM was unavailable as part of a raft of defense measures during his statehood earlier this month.
There are worries about the rising tension between some countries when it comes to nuclear weapons. So North Korea has been carrying out tests of its ICBM.
Russia's missile test comes at a time when it faces backlash from other major nations after Britain blamed the country for the poisoning of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal. The U.S. and other countries have read some Russian diplomats. The Kremlin responded on Thursday by expelling 60 American diplomats from Russia.
