New Missile Test-Fired

The Navy successfully test-fired an advanced ballistic missile from a new-generation nuclear submarine Tuesday, the Defense Ministry said.

The Bulava missile was launched from under the water in the White Sea, which separates Russia from Scandinavia, and reached the Kura testing range on the Pacific Kamchatka Peninsula, some 5,500 kilometers away, ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.

Tuesday's test from the Yury Dolgoruky nuclear submarine follows two failed Bulava launches from the same submarine.
