VLADIMIR PUTIN faces fresh humiliation after video emerged capturing the moment a Russian surface-to-air missile system 'BOOMERANGS and blows up own troops'.

The bizarre footage show the weapon as it fires on itself in a crazy malfunction.

The missile can be seen shooting into the sky - before turning mid-air and slamming back into where it came from in an enormous explosion.

The short clip was reportedly shot in the Ukrainian city of Alchevsk in the Luhansk region, which is under the occupation of pro-Russian separatist forces and is on the front line of the war in Ukraine.

It was filmed in the early hours of Friday morning when Russian troops reportedly launched a missile to intercept an oncoming Ukrainian plane.

  • Brit-led team of international volunteers blast Russian tank with missile 

    A BRIT-led team of international volunteers blasted a Russian position with a Javelin anti-tank missile on Ukraine’s front line.

    The daredevil squad, led by ex-Para Daniel Burke, crept into no-man’s land in occupied Kherson province to launch the rocket attack.

    Their unit, known as the Dark Angels, began the commando-style raid after troops from Ukraine’s 28th Brigade gave them an £80,000 fire-and-forget missile.

    Body cam footage shot by fellow Brit fighter Sam Newey — a ­student from Birmingham with no previous military experience — shows the four-man team creeping up to a ridge line to fire the US-made guided weapon.

    Britain has given Ukraine some 200 Javelin missiles which have a maximum range of 2.5km. The US donated thousands more.

    The Sun met the volunteers at their bunker HQ in a bomb-blitzed frontline village.

    The highest ranking volunteer was a former US Marine sergeant, Chris.

    Others include a German-born bartender, British ex-con Mark Ayres, 49, and a US gun enthusiast, Justin, 29, who fought in Afghanistan.

    Burke formed the Dark Angels to deliver humanitarian aid and provide medical and military training.

    His volunteers are all unpaid — and laugh off Russian claims they are far-right foreign mercenaries.

  • Putin vows to deploy Satan 2 nukes by end of year as tensions with NATO rise

    In his latest threat to the west, the tyrant said the world-ending Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile would be delivered in the next six months, amid heightened tensions with NATO countries.

    The despot boasted: “The missile can break through all modern anti-missile defences.

    “There is nothing like this anywhere in the world, and won’t be for a long time.”

  • Liz Truss accuses Putin of ‘weaponising hunger’ with Ukraine blockade (2/2)

    The Foreign Secretary accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of “weaponising hunger” with the blockade.

    “He is using food security as a callous tool of war. He has blocked Ukrainian ports, and is stopping 20 million tonnes of grain being exported across the globe, holding the world to ransom,” she said.

    “I’m here in Turkey to discuss the plan to get the grain out, supported by the United Nations.

    “We’re clear that commercial vessels need to have safe passage to be able to leave Ukrainian ports, and that Ukrainian ports should be protected from Russian attacks.

    “We support the UN talks, but Russia cannot be allowed to delay and prevaricate. It’s urgent that action is taken within the next month ahead of the new harvest. And we’re determined to work with our allies to deliver this.”

  • Liz Truss accuses Putin of ‘weaponising hunger’ with Ukraine blockade (1/2)

    Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has accused Russia of “weaponising hunger” and using food security as a “callous tool of war” with its blockade of Ukrainian grain.

    Speaking at a press conference alongside Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara, Ms Truss warned the crisis is “urgent” and must be solved in the next month to avoid “devastating consequences”.

    Ukraine has been described as the “bread basket of Europe” and was one of the world’s largest exporters of wheat, corn and sunflower oil.

    But the Russian invasion and Moscow’s mining of the access to the southern ports, including Odesa, has halted much of that flow and endangered world food supplies.

    Ms Truss said the UK’s long-standing alliance with Turkey is “more important than ever” at a time when “security, sovereignty and self-determination are under threat”.

    She said the countries are working “closely together”, in particular to get the “grain out of Ukraine”.

  • Inside Putin’s DIRTY billions

    The despotic dictator of Russia has a wealth that is believed to be more than Bill Gates, and equal to that of Elon Musk, but where is all this wealth tied up.

    In new leaked emails, just some of the Russian rulers assets have been exposed.

    Here are just a few:

  • Ukrainian military to retreat from Sievierodonetsk.

    According to the governor of the region, Ukrainian forces are being pushed back by Russian troops.

    However the governor was quick to dispel rumours of in-fighting amongst Ukrainian troops.

    "Do not spread rumors of betrayal. Nobody abandons our guys, nobody allows the encirclement (of our troops). The situation right now is as such that staying at these destroyed positions just for the sake of being there doesn't make sense," they said.

    Reports emerged recently that 90% of the regions infrastructure has been destroyed.

  • Ukraine won’t get a ‘free pass’ into the EU, French officials claim

    Despite the country being desperate to join the European Union, French officials have claimed the trading block will not come to Ukraine’s aid.

    “There is no expedited procedure, there is no King’s Pass,” French Minister Delegate for Europe Clément Beaune said in an interview with French radio Europe 1. 

    “They need to finish the war first, to rebuild the country, to meet all the democratic and economic requirements. This will take time. But we are giving this signal of openness,” He added.

  • Mayor of Kyiv pays tribute to fallen Ukrainians amid EU membership talks

     Former boxer and mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, has paid tribute to his fallen comrades as the EU announce Ukraine as been awarded candidate status.

    "We paid a very high price for this chance," he wrote on Telegram. "Yes, we still have a lot to do on the way to the European family.

    "But I am sure that Ukraine will do everything necessary, fulfil all the conditions and pass the necessary laws. Because otherwise our state has no future. Indeed, our best defenders are dying for it."
