Meanwhile, America is doing what? Reducing military capability and purging senior staff while the citizens are fighting over cheap Chinese made goods at Wal-Mart for Black Friday. You better wake up.

MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. The Alexander Nevsky strategic nuclear-powered submarine will make a single test-launch of the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile on Sunday, November 30, a source in the Northern Fleet headquarters told TASS on Thursday.

Earlier it was reported that the Alexander Nevsky is to fire the only missile that will be on board. In October, the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine carried out the launch with a full load of Bulava missiles on board.

In early November, Russia’s Defense Ministry rejected media reports that the test launch of Bulava planned until year-end has been postponed. The ministry’s official spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said the missile will be launched from the submarine until the end of this year. The spokesman added that in line with the plan for 2015, two launches of sea-based Bulava are to be conducted.
