Russian Submarine Test-Fires ICBM

The Russian Northern Fleet’s Project 955 underwater missile cruiser, aka submarine, Yuri Dolgoruky has successfully test-fired a Bulava missile from the Barents Sea and hit all the designated targets at the Kura practice range in Kamchatka, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Monday according to Russia's TASS news agency.

"The Project 955 Borey-class underwater missile cruiser Yuri Dolgoruky has made a successful launch of a Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile from the designated area of the Barents Sea towards the Kura practice range in Kamchatka. The launch was made from the submerged position in compliance with a combat training plan," the Defense Ministry said.

It is unclear if the Russian launch was in response to any recent US or NATO drills: at the end of May, the Pentagon conducted its first successful test interception of a simulated  ICBM attack, modeling a possible escalation in hostilities with North Korea.


"The parameters of the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile’s flight trajectory were practiced in the normal regime. According to the confirmed data of the registering equipment, the warheads of the intercontinental ballistic missile performed a full cycle of the flight and successfully hit the designated targets at the practice range," the Defense Ministry said.

The last time a Bulava missile was test launched was on September 27 when the submarine Yuri Dolgoruky performed an experimental salvo launch of two ICBMs from the White Sea towards the Kura practice range in the Russian Far East.

 

The Yuri Dolgoruky submarine is the Project 955 Borey-class lead vessel. The underwater cruiser is armed with a set of Bulava sea-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles and also with torpedoes. The sub can be armed with cruise missiles. It has a full displacement of 24,000 tonnes, is about 160 meters long and 13 meters wide. The R-30 Bulava is a solid-propellant ballistic missile developed specially for Project 955 submarines. It can deliver 10 warheads of 150 kilotonnes each to a distance of 10,000 kilometers.

In 2015, the strategic nuclear submarine made the National Interest list of the most deadly Russian submarines. This is what it reported:

The fourth-generation Project 955 submarines are equipped with 16 RSM-56 Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missiles with a range of 8,000 kilometers (nearly 5,000 miles). Each Bulava SLBM is fitted with up to ten thermonuclear warheads.

 

The Borei-class subs “promise to provide the Russian Navy with a potent long-range capability for years to come,” the National Interest noted.

 

The Russian Navy operates three Borei-class submarines, the flag ship Yury Dolgoruky, Alexandr Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh. The first two were commissioned in 2013, while the latest one is in active service since December 2014.

 

The first submarine of the Project 955-A Borei-II class, dubbed Knyaz Vladimir, is expected to enter service in 2017. By 2020, the Russian Navy plans to operate a total of eight Borei-class ballistic missile submarines, three Project 955 subs and five Project 955-A watercraft.

 

The Borei-class submarines are expected to remain in service for decades to come, at least until 2040.

I can't imagine the Russians don't have their own nukes pre-positioned in Israel.

All those Russian "Jews" running around...

At the end of the day we are all hoping that reasonable, decent men begin to wake up to the need for coups to overthrow the sociopaths.

Otherwise the probability of the use of tactical nukes and EMP blasts, likely bio warfare - is exceedingly high.

Or Saudi?

Given Israel's history, it is *exceedingly* likely they will try to false flag us/russia conflict and/or attack the US and blame on Syria/Hezbollah/Iran.

Thing is - we know this is their m.o. and so does Ivan.

parenthetically- why nothing from Trump on 9/11? At one point he lied a out dancing muslims when it was israeli jews at least 3 of whom were mossad... to include Dom Suter, owner of Urban Moving Systems, who was allowed to flee to Israel AND NEVER QUESTIONED.

With a controlled media and stupid distracted populace, where do they go from there?

It is beyond the slightest shadow of doubt that Israeli agents had foreknowledge of the 911 attacks, and, together with scientific forensic proof of controlled demolitions of WTC 1, 2 and 7.

The very first people arrested on suspicion of involvement in the 9/11 attacks turned out to be five Israeli Jews: Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg (Sivan's brother), Oded Ellner, Yaron Shmuel and Omer Marmari. Their white Urban Moving Systems van was stopped and they were arrested within hours of the attacks, on the afternoon of 9/11/01. Sivan Kurzberg, Ellner and Shmuel had been observed by several eyewitnesses at the rear parking lot of the Doric apartment complex in Union City, New Jersey. They were seen atop the van with cameras, high-fiving, smiling, joking with cries of joy and mockery, hugging each other, and taking photographs and video of the Twin Towers within a few minutes of the first plane impact.

Marc Perelman of New York's Jewish weekly The Forward reported on March 15, 2002 that the FBI had concluded that at least two of the Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, and their employer Urban Moving Systems Incorporated was a suspected intelligence front. On September 14, 2001, Urban's owner Dominick Suter fled the U.S. for Israel. Perelman also tells on video of how he was able to confirm that, according to the FBI, two of the five Israelis were "Mossad agents". Christopher Ketcham says the transcripts of the Carl Cameron report were later removed from the Fox News website following pressure from Abe Foxman of the ADL, and replaced with the rather Orwellian message: "This story no longer exists".

When arrested, the Israelis - dubbed the "High-Fivers" by the FBI - were found to have airline tickets with immediate travel dates for destinations world-wide, and tie-ins to 9/11. Dual US-Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff, who co-authored the USA Patriot Act" and headed the Justice Department's Criminal Division in the aftermath of 9/11, is a prime suspect for pulling strings to get the Israelis released and sent home.

Not only is Obama a Scum Fuck Pure Evil Psychopath, he's now officially become, although he's always been, an accessory to War Crimes, Treason & Conspriacy to Muder Amercian's.

Its safe to say now, any Criminal Fraud CEO "President" of the Criminal Fraud UNITED STATES, CORP. INC. from here on out would have to defacto continue the Crime, swear an Oath to Treason & continue the PsyOp / False Narrative Flag of 911.

This is from RT today.

Stalin, Putin, Pushkin, and Vladimir Lenin took the top three positions in a Levada Center poll which asked Russians to name the “most outstanding people of all times and peoples.” The poll results were published on Monday.

Look at that. The russian people hold Stalin and Lenin up as some of the greatest and respected people of all time. Along with Putin the ex KGB officer.

Russia's central bank reports to the came banking cartel as the US Fed central bank. Neither is controlled by the citizens or govt and both control the countries money.

Pretty sure the old and rabid war hawks like Hanoi John McCain won't even blink an eye as he orders another pallet of Depends to be delivered to his bunker.  The demented old fool wants his war and to him it is still 'full speed ahead, damn the torpedoes'.  His bunker is rather palatial as his wife lobbied successfully to make extra rooms for her pool boy, personal trainer and tennis coach.

I'm really getting the feeling that the assholes in government in the USA are going to push the Russians too far . . . and soon.  When Russia decides to act we could see them take out US military bases and aircraft carriers all over the world, including in the USA, and potentially with nuclear weapons.  Putin is on record recently saying that "We will never fight another war on Russian territory" along with "If a fight is inevitable, strike first and strike hard".  What he is saying there is; If Russian sovereignty is threatened we will not hesitate to strike first with nuclear weapons".  If the Russians were to deploy their Khibiny electronic warfare system around the USA's nukes it's possible they could totally disable our missiles and bombers (like they've done in at least two demonstrations - once  with an AEGIS destroyer in the Black Sea and once with a flight of F/A-18's over Syria).Also, I saw the following on another site and thought it sums up the "Russia problem" quite nicely (the law they talk about below is the recent bill passed in the Senate to impose sanctions on the Russian nat gas industry):Now I want you to imagine this—what the US reaction would be if Russia and its allies surrounded the United States with hundreds of military bases and tens-of-thousands of troops in Canada and Mexico, and then after that, they made a laws to destroy America’s entire energy industry—understand this fact and you’ll know what’s happening now.

Somehow you get the feeling US officials have a very short memory. I think they WAY underestimate the Russians. After all, they were first in space, and built the fastest conventional jet, and many other firsts. I remember two things, reading from Russian blogs and talking to face to face with Russians over the years: 1) Don't underestimate the Russians, and 2) The Russians never bluff. We'd be way, way better off working with them, at least trying our best to. The alternative is not a good choice.
