The missiles carry dummies rather than nuclear warheads as Russia is a signatory of the Comprehensive-Test-Ban Treaty.
The failure of the missile is also just the latest setback for Russia`s rocket forces.
The test launch was delayed due to a
malfunction on the nuclear submarine supposed to fire it.
The Bulava missile was launched from the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine in the White Sea.
Russia is planning to test launch
its troubled Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile in the White Sea by the end of this week.
Russia`s new nuclear-capable Bulava missile has suffered a new failure in testing which was the likely source of a mysterious light that appeared over Norway, Russian newspaper reports said on Thursday.
