Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is rather fond of rattling his sabre. Whether it’s hunting animals while shirtless, or buzzing the coastlines of NATO countries with his aging bombers, ol’ Vlad is always up for a bit of posturing.
Which is why he’s sure to be less than impressed with his navy last week.
That’s when Russia celebrated its national Navy Day, and Putin made sure to put on a big display in the Crimea, an area of Ukraine he seized during the conflict there last year.
Stretching out into the sea was a fleet of Russian ships, including the frigate Ladny.
As you can see in the video below, the Ladny was supposed to launch a missile, impressing the local crowd and warning the West that Russia is not to be messed with.
Which is why it’s such a shame that the missile fizzled out and fell into the sea instead:
Sorry, Mr. President. You’re gonna have to work harder if you want to threaten us.
