Russia successfully tests new nuclear missile

MOSCOW - Russia successfully tested on Tuesday its new Bulava intercontinental missile which Moscow aims to make the cornerstone of its nuclear arsenal over the next decade.
The Defense Ministry said the 12-meter long Bulava, or Mace, fired from a submarine near Russia's border with Finland, successfully hit its target some 6,000 km (3,370 miles) away on the peninsula of Kamchatka in Russia's far east.
"The launch was successful in all respects. The Bulava missile delivered its warhead to the target area in the Kura testing site in the Kamchatka Peninsula region," spokesman Colonel Igor Konashenkov told Interfax.
