Russian President Dmitry Medvedev looks

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev looks at a missile’s engine in the assembly department of the Plesetsk military space center on October 11, 2008. Russia fired three long-range missiles on October 12 and pronounced its nuclear deterrent strong in an extraordinary show of force experts said had not been seen anywhere since the days of the Cold War. Two of the missiles were fired from nuclear submarines in the Asian and European extremes of the sprawling country while a third was watched by Medvedev on land in northwest Russia. It was the second Russian intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test in as many days and the latest in a series of high-profile military exercises of conventional land, sea and air forces as well as strategic nuclear units.
