Russia on Wednesday October 26, carried out a series of new nuclear drills even as Russia pressses on with it’s invasion of Ukraine.

The exercise involved Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarines and Tupolev strategic bomber planes.

Weapons were launched from the northern Plesetsk launch site and from a Russian nuclear submarine in the Barents Sea.

‘The tasks envisaged during the training of the strategic deterrence forces were completed in full, all missiles reached their targets,’ a Kremlin statement said.

Max Seddon, Moscow bureau chief for the Financial Times, tweeted: ‘They hold these every year, and Russia warned the US about them in advance.

‘But the last time Russia held one was in February – just a few days before invading Ukraine.’

During the meeting today, Putin repeated Russian accusations of the potential use of a ‘dirty bomb’ by Ukraine.
 

He said that the risk of conflict in the world and region was high, and that security should be heightened around key infrastructure sites.
