On December 8th, 2007 the Rocket Forces successfully launched a Topol/SS-25 missile. The launch took place at 17:43 MSK (14:43 UTC) from the Kapustin Yar test site. The missile warhead successfully reached its designated target at the Kura test site at Kamchatka.

According to a representative of the Rocket Forces, the test was performed "to confirm technical characteristics of the missile and to test various measurement systems used by the military", as well as "missile defense countermeasures employed by ICBMs and SLBMs".

UPDATE 12/09/07: It appears that the report about Kura was wrong. The test likely involved a flight from Kapustin Yar to Sary-Shagan, just like a test on November 1, 2005 and, to some extent, the one on April 22, 2006.
