Russia test-fired the Zircon hypersonic missile from frigate Admiral Gorshkov in the White Sea.

It successfully hit its target at a distance of more than 400 kilometers.

It comes amid tensions over Russia amassing troops on the Ukraine border.

Last month, Russia said it had successfully test-launched a hypersonic cruise missile from a submarine for the first time.

It came days after the USA confirmed it had tested a weapon of its own.

The Zircon, or Tsirkon, missile has been touted by Russian President Vladimir Putin as part of his arsenal of supposedly unrivalled arms systems.

Russia’s defence ministry said that the Severodvinsk submarine had fired the missile in the Barents Sea, successfully hitting its chosen target.
