Russian Mars Mission

The Russians just can't seem to get a successful Mars mission, can they...and this one didn't even get out of LEO.

(If I was some kind of conspiracy theorist, I'd link this to the fact that they were apparently trying to deliberately contaminate Phobos with earthlife. However. I know the truth. Russians just aren't good at sending things to Mars. I will resist Red Planet jokes here).

Hopefully it won't land on anything important when it crashes back to Earth.
