Russia says it successfully test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that is to be a key element of its nuclear arsenal for decades but has been plagued by problems.

Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told Russian news agencies the submarine “Vladimir Monomakh” test-fired a Bulava missile from the White Sea and that the missile hit a testing ground in Kamchatka.

It was the first Bulava test conducted by the “Vladimir Monomakh,” the third of Russia’s new-generation, Borei-class submarines to be commissioned.

At least eight of some 20 Bulava tests have been unsuccessful, including one in September 2014.

President Vladimir Putin has emphasized that Russia will continue to seek to upgrade its nuclear arsenal for the foreseeable future.

Russia has reacted coolly to U.S. calls to bring limits on nuclear weapons lower than those set in the 2010 New START treaty.

Russia’s navy will test-fire an intercontinental ballistic missile from one of its new-generation, nuclear-powered submarines on September 10.
