MOSCOW (BNS): The 13th test launch of Russia's Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) has been carried out successfully, the state media reported Thursday.

The ICBM's test warhead "successfully hit its target on the Kura test range in Russia's Far East Kamchatka region," the Russian Defense Ministry said on Thursday as reported by RIA Novosti.

It did not specify the target which the missile destroyed.

The Itar-Tass news agency also reported a successful launch of the Bulava missile. “Reentry vehicles successfully reached the Kura firing range on the Kamchatka Peninsula,” it said, quoting the Defence Ministry press-service and information directorate.

The missile was test fired from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear submarine in the White Sea.

Russia had put on hold all tests of the three-stage solid-propellant ballistic missile system after the weapon failed during its last launch in December last year.

The ICBM has a range of over 8,000 kilometers and is designed to be installed on the Russian Navy's new Borey class nuclear-powered submarines.
