Russian cosmonaut Aleksei Ovchinin sarcastically reacted to the failure of one of the boosters on his Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft on Thursday.

“We arrived quickly,” he said in an unamused tone, as the malfunction forced the crew to initiate an emergency landing.

The Soyuz capsule is believed to have landed 25 kilometres (15.5 miles) away the town of Zhezqazghan in central Kazakhstan.

Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague were due to join the Expedition 57 crew aboard the International Space Station, and were originally scheduled to return to Earth in April 2019.
