Russia has successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile armed with multiple warheads less than a week after President Donald Trump’s administration announced that the United States would withdraw from a Cold War-era nuclear treaty with the country.

“A mobile [RS-24] Yars solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile armed with multiple warheads was test-fired from the Plesetsk state testing spaceport,” the Russian Defense Minister said, announcing the Wednesday morning test, Russia’s Tass news agency reported. It confirmed that the missile successfully reached its target, a practice range in the country’s far east.

“The launch aimed to confirm the advanced missile system’s capabilities and flight characteristics,” the ministry explained.
