burevestnik nuclear cruise missile

How does the new Rusian cruise missile work?

Is it a nuclear ramjet engine?

Not much detail there, but that sounds an awful lot like the SLAM, the last link in the "see also" section. The engineers designing it joked that the acronym actually stood for "slow, low, and messy", and it was ultimately abandoned as being far less practical than an ICBM (of which Russia already has plenty).
