In another show of nuclear brinkmanship, both US and Russian nuclear submarines have positioned themselves in strategic locations, as the war in Ukraine shows no signs of abating.
Meanwhile, Russian nuclear submarine Generalissimus Suvorov successfully fired a Bulava ballistic missile from the White Sea at the Kura range as part of the final stage of state tests, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
“The crew of the newest strategic missile submarine Generalissimus Suvorov of the Borey-A project, successfully fired the Bulava ballistic missile as part of the final stage of state tests,” the statement says.
“Missile firing was carried out from a submerged position from the White Sea at the Kura training ground on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The flight of the Bulava ballistic missile took place in normal mode. According to the confirmed data of objective control, the warheads of the missile successfully arrived in the specified area of the Kura range,” the ministry noted.
