President Putin oversees Russia’s strategic nuclear forces drills – 26th October 2022

Under the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin, ground, sea, and air strategic deterrence forces were trained launching ballistic and cruise missiles.

Russia on October 26 tested a Sineva submarine-launched ballistic missile from a vessel in the northern Barents Sea, the Kremlin said.

The nuclear-capable missile was launched from the submarine Tula (К-114), the Kremlin said.

The launch was conducted by the Northern Fleet. Defense

Minister Sergey Shoygu said the exercise was practice for a retaliatory nuclear strike. Similar tests have been carried out annually in October since 2013. Russia announced the test the previous day. Moscow last conducted a strategic missile test in mid-February.

In addition to the Sineva, Russian forces also test-fired a Yars intercontinental ballistic missile at the Plesetsk state test cosmodrome in the northwestern Arkhangelsk Oblast, the Kremlin said.
