The Russian Defense Ministry has carried out a test launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile RS-24 Yars towards a proving ground in the Kamchatka Peninsula.

"At the experimental space site Plesetsk a combat crew of the Yoshkar-Ola missile unit carried out a test launch of the solid propellant mobile-based intercontinental missile (ICBM) RS-24 Yars with a multiple re-entry vehicle. The warheads reached the designated area at the Kura proving ground in the Kamchatka Peninsula," the Defense Ministry said. "All tasks have been coped with in full."

The purpose of the launch was to reaffirm the reliability of a batch of missiles of this class, according to (TASS) news agency.

On September 12 the Strategic Missile Force test-launched a silo-based RS-24 missile with a multiple warhead from Plesetsk. The experimental warheads reached the designated area at the Kura proving ground.
