A dramatic moment when a missile launched by Russian forces boomeranged on the invading army has been caught on camera.

The now viral clip captured the action as pro-Russian separatists launched a rocket at Ukrainian troops in the city of Alchevsk, Luhansk early on Friday.

In the video, the surface-to-air missile is seen ascending from where it was launched before looping back on itself and exploding on Russian President Vladimir Putin's troops.

The botched attack also lead to a blaze tearing through nearby homes, local media reported. While further reports are awaited, it's been suggested that Russia's own defence system may have been the reason for the botched missile launch.
