The Ministry of Defense of Russia has published a video of the launch of the experimental “Poplar”

The Russian Defense Ministry posted a video of the launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile RS-12M Topol from the Kapustin yar test range in the Astrakhan region.

As previously reported by the military department, the combat part of the ICBM successfully hit the target at the Sary-Shagan test range in Kazakhstan. The start-up was carried out as part of the experiment. Its results will be used in the development of new missile defense systems, which in the future can be installed on new intercontinental ballistic missiles.
