MOSCOW, October 19 (Itar-Tass) — A joint unit of Barnaul-based Missile Strategic Purpose troops ( RVSN) and air and space defense troops have made a successful launching of an intercontinental ballistic missile"RC-12M Topol" from Russia's northern cosmodrome in Plesetsk at 1.12 pm Moscow time Friday, RVSN spokesman Colonel Vadim Koval told Itar-Tass.
