See Russia Deploy Its Bastion Missile System On Disputed Pacific Islands

Video from the Russian Defense Ministry shows the country's military deploying its Bastion coastal defense missile systems near the Japan-claimed Kuril Islands chain. Japan lays claim to the island system, but the two countries have disputed over the land since the end of WWII, preventing a peace treaty. The Bastion missilies can hit sea targets up to 500 km away.
