Russian ICBM test called a success
by UPI

MOSCOW - A test firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from European Russia to Asian Russia on Tuesday was called a success by military officials in Moscow.

Vadim Koval, a spokesman for the strategic missile forces, said the RS-24 missile was launched from the Plesetsk space center in northern Russia with a target in Kamchatka, in the Far East, Novosti reported.

"The targets have been reached and objectives achieved completely," Koval said.

He said the missile had multiple warhead capacity and was capable of avoiding missile defense systems, the report said.

Russia is publicizing more of its missile testing as it bristles against U.S. plans to install missile sites in Poland and the Czech Republic.

Washington claims the sites are needed to protect from attacks from such countries as North Korea or Iran but Russia considers them a threat to its national security and a destabilizing factor for Europe, Novosti said.
