A video of an inadvertent Russian rocket attack on its own territory in the city of Belgorod appeared on social networks in the early hours of Sept. 1.

Judging by the footage, the Russian armed forces may have placed a missile launcher within the city limits, putting the local population at risk.

In the video, as the failed missile takes to the sky, exhaust trails from three or four other launches can be seen. The missiles were probably launched at Ukraine

But the missile in the video immediately deviates from its intended upwards trajectory and, flying practically horizontally at low altitude for a few seconds over residential areas, it is seen to explode as it impacts on what appears to be one of the districts of Belgorod.

Information about possible casualties and destruction has not yet been released, probably because the Kremlin regime considers it better to cover up such incidents.

There have been several other cases of Russian missiles failing on launch that have been captured on video in the last few months.
