If comrade Stalin was still alive, this shit would not have happened.... not six times in two years at least. Damn those stupid drunk potato farmers!

They don't have an abort button? The rocket was just allowed to hit the ground in a random spot.

#6 of course it would be much better to have that detonation up in the air to spread parts evenly over hundreds of kilometers? :)
or should they just do it over their head? to crash to whole base?

this way the impact has been reduced. also such rocket stations are on a very very very large area. you can tell from the delayed start or explosion sound.

And they weren't carrying GPS satellites. They were carrying Russian navigation satellites - GLONASS. GPS being an american toy. And the European one - Galileo; but this one has about 5 / 30 satellites up so far.
