The 35th Barnaul Rocket Division including mobile intercontinental ballistic missile complexes (ICBMs) have held a military exercise at the Altai Krai, near border with China.

During the drills, it was demonstrated how the Russian strategic rocket forces with Topol-M mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles can be used – for instance, to destroy troops on the ground or to counter massive missile, aviation or nuclear strikes by an enemy.

The Topol-M mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles are making “intensive maneuvers” on combat patrol routes.

Earlier China has deployed advanced Dongfeng-41 ICBMs in Heilongjiang Province, which borders Russia, according to reports based on images of Global Times.
