Ukraine tests new anti-ship cruise missile

Ukraine held a series of test launches of modernized S-125 air defence system and Neptune subsonic cruise missiles in Odessa region next to annexed Crimea.Chief of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov, who observed the launches at the testing ground near the Black Sea port of Odessa, said he was satisfied with the tests which proved that the Ukrainian missiles were able to secure the country’s borders along the Black Sea and the Azov Sea.

The new Neptune cruise missile, able to hit naval targets at a distance of 280 km, showed “a very good result” at the testing ground according to Turchynov.The test launches come at a time of heightened tensions between Russia and the West over Russia’s seizure of two small Ukrainian armoured artillery vessels and a tug boat and their crews in November.
