Russian Aerospace Defense Forces have successfully test-launched a new interceptor missile from the territory of Kazakhstan, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

“Another test-launch of a new Russian interceptor missile was successfully conducted by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces from the Sary-Shagan training range in Kazakhstan,” the defense ministry said.

“After a series of trials, the new interceptor missile confirmed its characteristics and successfully completed the task by striking an assigned target with precision,” the defense ministry quoted deputy commander of the missile defense unit Vladimir Sergiyenko as saying.

Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces have previously test-launched interceptor missiles from the Sary-Shagan training range. The last trials were reported on 1 December 2018.

This is not new, 1st test happened in 2014, and they’re not the only ones with anti-ICBM/anti-Satellites weapons. This suppository is, in terms of range, between RIM-161D block IA/B and block IIA, so as the later, you normally should have an about Mach 15 figure one exo-atmospheric. Range is supposed to be 1,500km
They’ve upgraded the Soviet-era DON-2N “Pill Box”. Look at the radar(s) used:

During cold-war, the one near Moscow was the #1 NATO target, set to receive… 69 (!!!) nuclear warheads 😱

No. Don’t you see it’s a silo-launched missile? S-500 is on TEL, just like S-400 and S-300. This is something else. Although, it’ll be mobile too, but they’re using the silo from the outdated system it replaces.
It’s not really made to shoot down atmospheric targets. This baby is here to intercept ICBMs, satellites and potential space weapons. The warhead is optionally nuclear.
