The Strategic Rocket Forces released new numbers on the status of the land-based missile force. The main change is in the number of Topol/SS-25 missiles - only 270 of these are operational today, down from 291 declared in the July 2005 START data exchange. (This is in addition to the decomissioning of five R-36MUTTH/SS-18 missiles announced earlier.)

It is unclear, however, which divisions got cut. One is certainly the division in Yurya (12 missiles). It's tempting to guess that the rest of the 21 decomimssioned Topol missiles came from Teykovo, making the room for Topol-M deployment there, scheduled for this year, but we just don't know.
