The Zircon was first tested in October 2020, and it was called a "great event" by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In March, Russia used another hypersonic missile, called the Kinzhal, against Ukraine. Moscow claimed that it was the first time that the Kinzhal had been deployed in combat.

Putin has reportedly called the missiles a family of new "invincible" weapons in Russia's arsenal.
