RUSSIA has launched a supersonic cruise missile in the Black Sea as Vladimir Putin sends a chilling message to President Biden.
It comes as US ships have entered the Black Sea earlier this week.
The missile was launched in a live-fire exercise coinciding with the first visit by a US Legend-class national security cutter in 13 years.
The Vulkan firing comes shortly before the arrival of two Royal Navy warships amid deep tension in Ukraine over fears of a Russian invasion.
A BOTCHED missile launch "set the sea on fire" on the same Russian ship designed to carry Putin's unstoppable hypersonic rockets.
The rocket left the launcher, rose and rotated alarmingly before crashing into the sea, it is claimed.
The failed missile posed a major threat to the newly renovated Marshal Shaposhnikov frigate as it hit the water, with flames visible on the sea.
A voice of the officer making the film from the air is heard saying “Look, the sea is burning”.
Eventually, the Kalibr missile burned out in the Pacific Ocean, as the warship sped away.
The missile was conventional - but this frigate is destined to carry Vladimir Putin’s 6,100mph “unstoppable” Tsirkon hypersonic missile still undergoing tests, a weapon designed to destroy Western cities in a nuclear war.
