On June 28, 2007, the Dmitry Donskoy submarine of the Northern Fleet conducted a successful launch of a Bulava ballistic missile. At the time of the launch the submarine was in a submerged position in the White Sea. According to the Navy spokesman, the missile warhead successfully reached the Kura test site at Kamchatka.

This was the first successful test of the missile after three failures in a row. The previous attempt to launch the missile took place in December 2006.
