"North Korea, apparently, attempted to launch a rocket from the East Sea region early in the morning today, but the attempt was supposed to fail," the agency reports the South Korean military.

Later the information was confirmed by the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces (STRATCOM).

“STRATKOM spotted and tracked the unsuccessful launch of a DPRK ballistic missile,” said a command spokesman. It was also noted that "the rocket does not threaten the security of the United States."

Earlier, Ronhap reported that "North Korea has deployed one or two medium-range ballistic missiles on the east coast." According to the agency, this information "was confirmed by numerous sources in the government of South Korea."

      Yes, nothing will happen to them - who knows - maybe information about the unsuccessful launch of a duck, and the rocket flew away.

      Do you still believe the "great" Kim will actually launch a nuclear missile in the US? If he does, his country will then be wiped out. How much do you need to remind it?

      He needs this stick to reward the nearby command with an "honorable slap in the face", if anything goes wrong.

    Later, the ball’s information was confirmed by the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces (STRATKOM). According to Kommersant with reference to the agency “Rhonhap”. I would not trust one hundred percent such sources.

    As General Kamanin wrote: 70% of successful starts are an excellent result.
    And as for the executions, this is liberalistic trash. Once the rockets fly, then they do not shoot anyone, evaluate life adequately.

      As General Kamanin wrote: 70% of productive starts are an excellent result.

      Gagarin had seven launches - two accidents. Since Gagarin was sent, it means a completely acceptable result. And it's not about the space race - an accident would be even worse than just being late. I’m not a rocket launcher, but since Korolev decided, it means that such a percentage of accidents is permissible. Of course, after working on the bugs.

      The Americans, by the way, launched two Saturn-5s, one of which was declared unsuccessful. And then asthmatics and colds flew - and the equipment worked with "Hurray" and the people nishtyak. Another nail in the lid of the Agrobe of the American fairy tale about flights to the moon ...


      And as for the executions, this is liberalistic trash.

      Absolutely correct opinion. If for every unsuccessful launch of rocket launchers, then soon the miners, and not the rocket launchers, will launch rockets ...

    Right now, as North Korea starts selling technology to create nuclear weapons, then such an ass will begin!

    And in our city today, the DPRK Consulate General has solemnly opened. We moved from Nakhodka.
    The Consulate General of the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea has opened in the capital of Primorye. Thus, the diplomatic mission of this country became the sixth consulate general working in Vladivostok.

    According to the website of the Vladivostok administration, since 1958, the diplomatic mission worked in the city of Nakhodka. The move would be initiated in connection with the development of Vladivostok as a center of cooperation with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

    The Consulate General opened on a significant day for the neighboring state - the 94th anniversary of the birth of the leader of the Korean people, Kim Il Sung, which is celebrated on April 15. This was noted at the opening ceremony by the DPRK Consul General in Vladivostok, Im Cheon Il.

    - I am sure that this new building of the Consulate General will create all conditions for its employees for fruitful work and new achievements. This event is a symbol of long-term relations and strategic partnership between Russia and the DPRK, said Igor Pushkarev, head of the Vladivostok administration at the opening ceremony.

    The building of the former North Korean Consulate General in Nakhodka will be used for cultural, educational and other needs of the residents of the port city.

    Honestly, the place for accommodation was chosen unsuccessfully, in the middle of a sleeping area far from the business center, in the place of a kindergarten that was closed 15 years ago and later converted into a parking lot. There it was very convenient to park the car for all residents of neighboring houses, but now you have to throw under the house. Well, thanks, bother.

    Unsuccessful starts contribute to the improvement of technology. In the 60s, with unsuccessful starts, the crew rescue system (during unmanned launches) worked perfectly three times without fail. And once the launch was stopped, but the launcher leaned 5 degrees from the vertical, this was enough to trigger the system. And then, in the 70s, this system saved the life of astronauts.
