“At the Sary-Shagan testing range (Republic of Kazakhstan), a combat crew of the air and missile defense troops of the Aerospace Forces successfully carried out a regular test launch of a new missile of the Russian missile defense system,”  Sputnik reported quoting the Defense Ministry.

The missile, designed to protect against air and space attacks, can be seen shooting into the skies over Kazakhstan in a video released by Russian Defense Ministry.

RT said quoting Lieutenant General Andrey Demin, commander of the 1st Army of Special Air and Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense of the Aerospace Forces, that the testing “reliably confirmed the missile’s characteristics,” with the combat crew successfully hitting their simulated target.

Last month, Russia had tested another missile defense system, which is already in service with Russia’s Aerospace Forces, according to RT. Following the test, Moscow accused Washington of providing “false information” about its capabilities.

Russia had developed the world’s first working ABM system in 1962-63. The anti-ballistic missile weapon is designed to intercept and destroy ballistic missiles. Effective ABM systems have been sought since the Cold War when the nuclear arms race raised the specter of complete destruction by unstoppable ballistic missiles.
