Russian Federation has reportedly launched four ballistic missiles in a "strategic drill".

According to the country's defence ministry, the missile was sacked about 500 miles north of Moscow, The Independent reported.

The revelation came after the country's defense ministry said Thursday that three ballistic missiles were fired from nuclear submarines and one was launched from the northwest of the country as part of the drills.

Russian President Vladimir Putin oversaw on Thursday night the launch of four nuclear-capable ballistic missiles as part of a test for Moscow's strategic nuclear force, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, according to Russian news agency TASS.

Russian Federation has conducted a test launch of its Satan 2 nuclear missile, which the country's defence ministry says is capable of wiping out an entire country with a single strike, The Independent reported. They took off from the main bass in Ukrainka, Engels and Shaikovka and launched air-based cruise missiles at ground targets at Kura, Pemboi testing range in the northeastern region of Komi, and Terekta in Kazakhstan.

It added: "All objectives of the training have been successfully completed,".

In early September, Russia carried out joint military exercises with Belarus on NATO's eastern flank, causing concern in Poland and the Baltic states due to the size of the drills and doubts over Moscow's intentions.

Since July, North Korea has conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, launched missiles over Japan and test-launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles.
