TOKYO MARCH 28: Russia’s navy fired supersonic anti-ship missiles at a mock target in the Sea of Japan, the Russian defence ministry said on March 28.

– “In the waters of the Sea of Japan, missile ships of the Pacific Fleet fired Moskit cruise missiles at a mock enemy sea target,” the ministry said in a statement on its Telegram account.

Two ships launched a missile attack on a simulated enemy warship located about 100km (62 miles) away, the ministry said in a statement, adding that the Moskit supersonic cruise missiles with conventional and nuclear warhead capacity successfully hit their target.

The P-270 Moskit missile is a medium-range supersonic cruise missile of Soviet origin, capable of destroying a ship within a range of up to 120km (75 miles).

Tokyo reacted calmly to the missile drill, which was conducted near Vladivostok, rather than directly into the waters between the two countries. Japan’s foreign minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said on March 28 that Tokyo would stay vigilant against Moscow’s military operations.

– “As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues, Russian forces are also becoming more active in the Far East, including Japan’s vicinities. The (Japanese) government will continue to monitor these movements of the Russian military,” Hayashi told a regular press conference, adding that no damage had been reported after the missile launches.
