Or at least I think it is... There's an impressive tail on it. Weird how the bright tail seems to stop at a point, is that because of city lights stopping or due to some small missile shot at it?
It would be nice to know where the video was taken from. Sure, the title says 'Russia', but when I did a translation of the blurb under the video, Google Translate tells me the language it detected was Slovak:
UFO in Russia (UFO In Russia) 23 December 2012
Mankind is too arrogant to accept the fact that we are not the only civilization in the universe, every craving and when the evidence appears some people now sit in judgment, it's a fake ... yonder the birds ..

Be smarter than an animal, it does not make a man master universe.

PRESS TV, December 23 - Russia’s Southern Military District has successfully tested its new air defense system S-400 Triumf in line with plans to replace its S-300 PM systems.

Oddly, the source, RIA Novosti, doesn't say anything about an actual rocket/missile test having taken place, just that they were going to
MOSCOW, December 22 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Southern Military District has moved a step closer to adopting the new S-400 Triumf air defense systems, the district’s press service confirmed on Saturday.
Further successful target-shooting trials of the new air defense systems brings the district closer to the point at which the S-400 Triumf systems will be put on combat duty, replacing the S-300 PM systems, the district's press service confirmed on Saturday.
I've found just one other version of this video, uploaded today, so whatever it is does seem to have happened in the last couple of days because if it's from a while back then it would have been mirrored by many YouTubers by now:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3cBCW6lmpQ
I'm not so sure that what we see in it is 'ascending'; that could just be our perspective due to the planet's curvature. If it's high enough, then it could be that it's coming 'over the horizon'.
