A Russian military ship plowed into a crowded Baltic Sea beach on Sunday, startling sun-tanning vacationers who seemingly had no advance warning of the ship's approach to land. Amateur video posted to a social media website on Wednesday showed a Soviet air-cushioned landing craft "Zubr" ("Bison") cruising through the sea towards a popular beach near the Russian town of Kaliningrad near the Polish and Lithuanian borders. The ship did not seem to slow as it approached the shore, and plowed into land as beach-goers scrambled out of the way. Nobody was harmed in the training exercise, the ministry confirmed.
