An experimental Russian ballistic missile veered off its course shortly after having been launched from a Russian nuclear submarine and fell into the sea Wednesday, officials said. It was the second launch failure for the Bulava missile in two months, signaling serious problems with the nation's much-lauded new weapon. The Bulava missile was launched from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear submarine in the White Sea toward a testing range on the far-eastern Kamchatka Peninsula, but it veered off its designated flight path and fell into the sea, the navy said in a statement. The previous Bulava launch, from the same submarine on September 7, also ended in failure, prompting Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov to urge quick action to prevent the mishap from damaging plans for commissioning new Borei-class submarines. Three such submarines currently under construction are to be equipped with Bulava.
