MOSCOW, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- The Russian navy has completed its exercises in the Northern Pacific with missile launches, Russia's Pacific Fleet said Thursday.

The nuclear submarines Tver and St. George the Conqueror launched cruise missiles and inter-continental ballistic missiles to the targets planted in the Barents and Okhotsk seas, navy spokesman Roman Martov told reporters.

Two small missile ships, Inei and Razliv, also launched missiles to remote targets, he said.

In October, St. George the Conqueror along with other warships participated in another drill in the Far East. The navy then carried out over 15 artillery and missile firings against sea-based targets.

According to the commander of the Pacific Fleet submarine forces, Nikolai Yevmenov, Russia would hold drills involving underwater missile launches from two submarines in 2013.
