Russian Navy test launched the Sineva ICBM from northern sea to the pacific, testing the missile's full range for the 1st time.

http://www.en.rian.ru/russia/20081011/117682751.html

I'm curious, if it was launched from Barents sea, all the way to equator in Pacific, it would travel through CHina's Air space.
How does China agree to this? Wouldnt they protest or something?

It's outside the atmosphere, maybe 1000 km up, higher than some satellites in low earth orbit. It isn't in anyones air space.

Here's a site with plenty of pics from the exercise.

Also, a report from Admiral Kuznetsov showing SSBN Delta IV "Tula" launching a SS-N-23 Skiff:

Thanks for the clarification. So if Russia decides to test another ICBM, that goes on the opposite direction, going past Europe, Atlantic, US and into the Pacific, would US keep quiet to it? Its still outer space?

Probably not. The US doesn't keep quiet to anything that even remotely infringes on it's interests, or perceived interests.

Actually mate that would be excellent for the US as it would be in a great position to gather data on the ICBM and see how all the ABM systems work along the flight path. As an added bonus the ICBM, by some unplanned event, may fall into the US. Cheers.

Hehe, gathering telemetry data from Soviet/Russian missile tests has been a Western intel classic, ever since the Russian V-2 tests from Kaputsin Yar (the Brits posing as archeologists in Iran in 1948). It wasn't until the late eighties the dime dropped for the Sovs and they began encrypting their telemetry - and then still most can be gained from crunching numbers, inference and correlation with remote sensing techniques.

Gives pretty good insight into Soviet/Russian nav tech.

A squadron comprising the nuclear-powered battle cruiser Peter the Great, the anti-submarine warfare -- ASW -- ship Admiral Chabanenko and two supply ships from the Russian navy's Northern Fleet recently entered the Mediterranean Sea.

The squadron was joined there by the Russian Baltic Fleet's escort ship Neustrashimy ("Intrepid") and the Black Sea Fleet tanker Ivan Bubnov.
The Russian PtG Squadron now cruising the Med on their way to Venezuela.

Read the full story.

I have to admit that i find the comment in that Image above "The Russian Task Force exceeds all the navies of Latin American states in terms of aggregate firepower" quite amusing.
