(FOX NEWS) – Russia on Saturday claimed to have used a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile to strike a munitions warehouse in western Ukraine, a move one expert argued is a part of Moscow’s “strategic plan.”

Fox News Digital has been unable to confirm whether Russia actually did for the first time launch a hypersonic missile in a combat setting, but Russia expert Rebekah Koffler said that even the suggestion of launching such a weapon is significant.

“It’s a game-changer in the geopolitical realm, not unlike in the military realm, because they’re trying to [send a] strategic message,” she said. “In my assessment, [Russian President Vladimir Putin] is climbing small steps in the escalation ladder on the trajectory to nuclear warfare.”

Spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov said the Kinzhal, which translates to “dagger,” was used to target an underground warehouse on Friday.
