According to reports, one of Russia’s nuclear-powered submarines, Belgorod, vanished from its Arctic harbor. Western countries are concerned that it may be preparing to test its advanced weapons systems.
According to La Repubblica, Belgorod may be equipped with nuclear torpedoes called “Poseidon,” which are supposedly capable of traversing hundreds of miles underwater and causing “nuclear waves” close to coastal areas.
H.I., a submarine expert, said that this nuclear “mega torpedo” is unique in history. Sutton explained the details on his website Covert Shores. “Poseidon” is a new type of weapon. It will change the way that naval planning is done in Russia and in the West. This will lead to new requirements as well as new counter-weapons.
NATO warned its members that Belgorod had left its Arctic harbor perch, according to La Repubblica. According to the New York Post, Belgorod is one of the most powerful submarines in the world. It was first deployed in July. According to NATO officials, it could be heading to the Kara Sea for testing.
The submarine, formerly known as K-329 Belgorod was described as “the epitome of a new concept in warfare.”

The news of Belgorod’s disappearance is happening amid growing concerns that the Kremlin may be looking to its nuclear weapons while it struggles in Ukraine. The Daily Mail reported that footage recently shared by a pro-Russian Telegram channel revealed that a train carrying advanced military equipment belonged to the 12th Main Directorate. This helps keep Moscow’s nuclear stockpile intact.
The West was enraged last month when Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that he would defend “the territorial integrity of our Motherland” with “all the means available” — comments widely understood as a threat to nuclear proliferation.
The Kremlin has been caught in a series of battles in Ukraine. Recent Russian forces have pulled out of the Donetsk-area eastern city of Lyman. This was after Putin signed an agreement to annex four regions of Ukraine, including the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic.
Putin claimed that the United States had created a precedent for using nuclear weapons during World War II and that it used this precedent in a signing ceremony. Western officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, have warned that Russia could be punished for deploying nukes.
H.R. McMaster suggested that Moscow might be at the “precipice, really, of the collapse of Ukraine’s Russian army.”
