MOSCOW (BNS): A Russian Navy nuclear submarine has successfully test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from the Barents Sea on Wednesday, according to the Defence Ministry.

The Sineva long-range missile was test launched by the submerged Tula nuclear submarine from the Barents Sea towards the country's far eastern Kura Range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.

"Within the frameworks of testing the reliability of marine strategic nuclear forces, the Tula (nuclear submarine) launched a Sineva intercontinental ballistic missile from the Barents Sea to the Kura Range (n Kamchatka)," Ria Novosti news agency reported quoting the Defence Ministry statement.

The Sineva has a range of about 12,000 km. It entered service with the Russian Navy in 2007.

Wednesday's test comes close on the heels of the successful test firing of a Bulava ICBM from the Borey-class nuclear submarine Yuri Dolgoruky on October 29.

The missile too was launched from the Barents Sea and hit a target located on the Kura Range.
