Two submarines from Russia’s Pacific Fleet successfully launched Kalibr cruise missiles at maritime targets from the Sea of Japan.

A video of the missile launch was released on the Twitter account of Russia’s Defense Ministry.

According to a report by the Russian news agency (TASS), the Russian Pacific Fleet’s B-274 Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and B-603 Volkhov diesel-electric submarines successfully launched Kalibr cruise missiles at a naval target during maneuvers in the Sea of Japan.

TASS, quoting a statement from the Russia Pacific Fleet press office, revealed that the “cruise missiles accurately hit the target represented by a special ship structure simulating an enemy surface combatant”.

The Pacific Fleet’s over 15 ships and auxiliary vessels, as well as naval aviation aircraft, provided support for the combat exercise’s completion.

Japan’s Defense Ministry, in a report by the local newspaper Japan Times, said the Russian military has used exercises in the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk, and on the disputed islands known as the Northern Territories” to demonstrate its ability to act simultaneously in both the European and Asian theaters during the war in Ukraine.
