Big Russian ship - level 3

Big Russian ship - level 3

28-08-2013 06:00

Sunbathers in Russia got more than a tan after a huge military ship landed on a crowded beach.

This amateur footage shows hundreds of beachgoers scrambling away from the massive defence ship which showed no sign of slowing down as it approached the shore.

Russia's Defence Ministry said it was just a routine training exercise and beach landings are normal procedure. But no one told these holidaymakers. Luckily, no one was hurt in the exercise.

Difficult words: sunbather (person that lies in the sun to get tanned), scramble (move quickly), holidaymaker (person on a holiday).
