Russian state television cut short a speech by President Vladimir Putin as he addressed thousands of supporters at Moscow’s main football stadium on Friday.

While the Russian leader was addressing the crowd, state television began showing a clip of patriotic music in the programme.

Putin was cut in the middle as he was saying: “It so happened that the operation coincided with the birthday of one of our outstanding soldiers…”

Russian state television is strictly regulated and such interruptions are extremely uncommon.

The Kremlin later said that the broadcast was “interrupted due to technical problems on the servers”.

About 10 minutes later, state television replayed Putin’s speech from start to finish, before he left the stage.

Putin was speaking at an event in support of Russian forces in Ukraine and the annexation of the Crimean peninsula in 2014.
