Original Message -President Vladimir Putin held Russia's largest ever Victory Day military parade in Red Square in Moscow today
-He used the event as a way to showcase Russia's military prowess including their formidable T-14 Armata tanks
-Many world leaders claimed they were boycotting the event because of Russia's continued role in the Ukraine crisis
-Meanwhile there was panic as a BUK missile caught fire during a Russian parade in the Siberian city of Chita

Vladimir Putin today staged Russia's biggest ever Victory Day military parade on the Red Square as he displayed the country's formidable armaments in a show of strength directed at the West.

Thousands of troops marched across the historic cobblestones with formidable-looking new high-tech armour including T-14 Armata tanks were on show for the first time.

Even the seals in Russia have caught the patriotic mood sweeping Vladimir Putin's country.

At an aquarium in Siberia, they were pictured wearing military headgear, raising a flag, carrying knives in their mouths, and shooting at a target.

The seals - called Winnie the Pooh and Laska - have been trained to swim, march underwater and carry 'rifles'.

This is the alarming moment a Russian military parade went disastrously wrong when a BUK missile caught fire and smoke billowed out the end of it in front of horrified spectators.

The BUK system was slowly passing through Lenin Square in the Siberian city of Chita as part of the Victory parade celebrations taking place across Russia when it was suddenly engulfed in flames.

The missile system is believed to have been used to down Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in last year's crash over eastern Ukraine in which all 298 on board were killed.

Assorted quotes from the article...

So the Russians are training seals (the animal), playing nice with China (sanctions hurt and Russia just shot themselves in the foot economically speaking with China), parading scary high failure rate EQ around...

Looking more and more like NK everyday.

I guess 1 in 10 BUK isn't scary cause it'll never get off the launcher, 3 in 10 will misfire and another one will fail to detonate...

So literally half their best anti-air can't even fire. Really scary.
