Russia’s defense ministry said it launched missiles from land, sea and air in a large-scale strategic nuclear drill on Wednesday under President Vladimir Putin’s command, demonstrating the country’s full nuclear triad strengths.

The exercises included the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile fired from a nuclear submarine in the Barents Sea and several long-range cruise missiles from Tu-160 and Tu-95 bombers.

The ministry also said an intercontinental missile was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

All test missiles hit the arranged targets, according to the ministry.
