Russia tested Iskander-M tactical ballistic missile systems in the Southern province of Astrakhan region.

“Iskander-M tactical ballistic missile systems were successfully tested at the Kapustin Yar Range in the Astrakhan Region. The target, which imitates the fortified command post of an illegal armed unit, was hit at a distance of about 80 km by a pinpoint missile strike," TASS quoted Head of the district’s press service, Colonel Alexander Gordeyev as saying on Thursday.

"The events are being held as part of a tactical exercise under the plan of the final stage of the testing of the new Iskander-M tactic ballistic missile system, which joined the missile formation of the Eastern Military District located in the Jewish Autonomous Region," Gordeyev specified.
