MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. The salvo launch of four Bulava ballistic missiles from the Vladimir Monomakh nuclear-powered submarine in the Sea of Okhotsk was made at a distance of over 5,500 kilometers on Saturday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin reporting on the drills of the strategic nuclear forces, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

“Defense Minister of the Russian Federation Army General Sergei Shoigu informed Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin about the final stage of the combat trials to control the strategic offensive forces. During them, the Pacific Fleet’s strategic missile-carrying underwater cruiser Vladimir Monomakh made a salvo launch of four Bulava ballistic missiles from its submerged position at a distance of more than 5,500 kilometers from the Sea of Okhotsk,” the Defense Ministry said.

The ministry added that “all the missiles’ warheads successfully arrived at the designated area of the Chizha combat field.”
