Russia tests inter-continental missile

In the middle of the Georgia crisis, Russia has tested an inter-continental ballistic missile. The 45 tonne Topol missile was launched from the North-Western Russian town of Plessezk and landed some 6,000 km away on target in Kamchatka in the Pacific Ocean. The Russian authorities stated that the missile was capable of avoiding anti-missile technologies like the one which is to be stationed in Poland. According to the Russian army, this was a routine test which had nothing to do with the deteriorating situation between East and West.
