Navy Day in Russia: Putin witnesses launch failure at parade

On the Day of the Russian Navy incidents occurred while trying to launch missiles from ships  both in Crimea’s Sevastopol and the town of Baltiysk (Kaliningrad region).

In Sevastopol a missile fell apart at the start in the main bay of the city where the parade was being held. A number of ships and aircraft was involded in the event; theatrical shows and marines’ performances were organised.

Another incident happened before Vladimir Putin’s very eyes: a launcher failed to shoot out a missile.
