UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Moscow test-fired two ballistic missiles from two submarines in the Arctic Ocean and the Barents Sea on Saturday as part of a combat exercise, the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said the intercontinental liquid-fueled Sineva rocket was launched from the Tula submarine, while the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine launched the Bulava missile, the latest Russian rocket using solid fuel.
It said the missiles reached their targets at a training site in the northern Arkhangelsk region and in the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia’s far east.
“During the launch, the technical characteristics of the two submarine-launched ballistic missiles were ascertained and the efficiency of all ship missile systems,” the ministry said.
