Russia's military successfully launched its Bulava
intercontinental ballistic missile from a nuclear submarine in the White Sea to
hit a target in the Pacific thousands of miles away, the Russian Defence
Ministry said Thursday.
The Dmitry Donskoi submarine fired the missile from underwater from north-west Russia and 20 minutes later it fell on the Kura testing site on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Pacific.
The Bulava missile has a range of 10,000 kilometres and can carry six individually targeted nuclear warheads, dpa reported.
