Likely Putin was setting up a news event. You can pretty much bet in some manner it was filmed for future newscast. Putin has been rattling the nuclear sabre sword. Now that it's been sort of damped in the major media, he needs to get the world to refocus on his threat. This looks to be more PR which in this case failed.

He would have dearly loved to have shoved this out in front of England, where he has before threatened to use such a device to wipe out a large portion of England with an artificial tsunami.

Instead he has again shown that the Russian Bear isn't all that it was portrayed to be.

The IC estimates that the yield of the Poseidon weapon is 100 Megatons.

To put it in perspective, the largest nuclear weapon ever tested was the Soviet Tsar Bomba at 50 MT. The DGZ was a point on Novaya Zemlya island, about 1200 NM north of Moscow. The shock wave broke windows in villages are far as 430 NM from DGZ. This pressure wave was detected as far away as New Zealand, which recorded it twice as the wave traveled around the world.

The largest US weapon ever developed was a 19 megaton weapon. The reason that high yield weapons were abandoned in favor of smaller yeild weapons is that they are not militarily useful. Poseidon has no military purpose. It is a terror weapon. In fact by it's designed, Russia cannot control the effects that the weapon would cause. It is a terror weapon, intended to punish the world if they cross Russia.
