MOSCOW – In the Moscow war in Ukraine getting hotter, Russia deployed the RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for combat patrol missions in the Tver Region.
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced earlier this week that the Bologoye strategic missile division, based in the Tver Region, has placed the Yars surface-to-surface missile system on a combat patrol mission.
“In the Bologovsky missile complex (Tver region), Yars autonomous launchers were brought to combat patrol routes,” the ministry said in a statement, as quoted by EurAsian Times, Thursday (19/1/2023).

The ministry added that military personnel carried out their responsibilities and followed direct instructions, including carrying out appropriate maneuvers along combat patrol routes.
According to the Interfax report, Yars ICBM crews will march up to 100 kilometers, disperse troops with changes in their field position and engineering equipment, and coordinate combat camouflage and cover.
Combat training measures are planned to ensure that military personnel, weapons and equipment are ready for long-term work on combat patrol routes.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, missile units must practice “stealth deployment” in forests as part of maneuver operations. Extraction of special equipment from a hypothetical chemical contaminated zone will be handled by a support unit.
The Strategic Missile Forces are an important element of the Russian Armed Forces and the core of its strategic nuclear force.
