In the Sea of Japan, a new Russian submarine, the “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky”, fired a Kalibr-type cruise missile against a land target from an underwater position.

The crew of the Russian submarine successfully completed the mission and the missile was launched at the scheduled time, hitting, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

This missile exercise involved ships and vessels of the Russian Pacific Fleet, as well as planes and unmanned aerial vehicles of the Naval Department of the Russian Air Force.

The Russian submarine Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky serves in the Pacific Fleet and is one of the first diesel-electric submarines capable of carrying high-precision Kalibr cruise missiles of the Russian submarine fleet, the Russian Defense Ministry reports.

This move by the Russians has drawn ire in several Japanese media as the field where the firing was carried out is very close to the Kuril Islands that Tokyo considers as its own, despite their occupation by the Soviet army during World War II.
