Russian Military Successfully Tests New Anti-Ballistic Missile


MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian military has successfully tested a new anti-ballistic missile. It was launched from the Sary-Shagan testing range in Kazakhstan and hit the simulated target, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The Russian Defense Ministry noted that the missile defense system is designed to protect against air and space attacks.

“At the Sary-Shagan testing range (Republic of Kazakhstan), a combat crew of the air and missile defense troops of the Aerospace Forces successfully carried out a regular test launch of a new missile of the Russian missile defense system,” the ministry said.

Previously in late October, the Defense Ministry reported testing a new missile defense system at the Sary-Shagan test site.

Last year, Russia’s Aerospace Forces carried out a successful launch of a new interceptor missile at the Sary Shagan testing range.
