The Russian fleet launched two ballistic missiles

On August 24, 2019, in accordance with the combat training plan, two ballistic submarine ballistic missiles (SLBMs) ​​were successfully launched from strategic Russian nuclear submarines. Launches were carried out from the polar region of the Arctic Ocean and from the Barents Sea. The Sineva SLBM was launched from the K-114 Tula submarine (Project 667BDRM Dolphin), and the Bulava was launched from the K-535 Yury Dolgoruky submarine (Borey project 955).




The public was informed about this by the Ministry of Defense of Russia. The report notes that the models of SLBM warheads completed the full cycle of the flight program, and successfully hit training targets at the Chizh training grounds in the Arkhangelsk Region and the Kura in Kamchatka. The military department clarified that during these launches the technical characteristics of SLBMs and the operability of shipboard missile systems were confirmed.


We remind you that ballistic missile launches are a routine of Russian strategic forces. Regular launches not only once again confirm the suitability and characteristics, they allow to sober up and restrain probable "partners" from dangerous body movements. Earlier we Reported on the important statement made by Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the INF Treaty and recent missile tests in the United States.

    There’s another moment:

    NATO is very far behind Russia regarding strategic control in the Far North. This is also indicated by the fact that the P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft did not find a single submarine of the Russian Navy during the exercises of the Northern Fleet.
    The combined group of the Northern Fleet, with the support of aviation and airborne units, conducted exercises in the Arctic. About 30 warships entered the open sea. The journalist of the Norwegian portal Aldrimer.no noted that this was the largest Russian demonstration of its power in the region over the past 40 years.
    The author of the article believes that the purpose of the maneuvers was to develop actions to cut off the supply routes between Europe and the United States. Thus, Russia may force the Alliance to abandon any action north of the Faroe-Icelandic border - the NATO anti-submarine defense line between Britain, Iceland and Greenland. In addition, the Russian Federation could well solve the problem of forming a map of opportunities and response schemes for the bloc members.
    Even before the start of Russian naval exercises, three US Air Force P-8A Poseidon aircraft arrived at the Annea Norwegian airfield, which were supposed to help the Scandinavian armed forces monitor the coast. In particular, they were faced with the task of detecting and identifying Russian submarines that took part in the maneuvers.
    Norwegian military sources claim that between five and ten submarines of the Russian Navy were in the Barents Sea and the North Atlantic. Among them were the latest submarines of project 885 “Ash” K-560 “Severodvinsk” and K-561 “Kazan”. However, neither the Norwegians nor the Americans were able to confirm their stay in the indicated area. NATO members, despite all efforts, were unable to locate ships.
