Another video:

This video shows the same make of weapon, as you can see above. It is shorter and less detailed.

But this video, released on November 18, reportedly shows Russian cruise missile strikes. As you'll see, however, there are many interesting clips worth discussing:

A video of the hanger just before the missile launches. The part marked by the red arrow is part of the missile which deploys just a fraction of a second before the missile is dropped:

The wings are now deployed:
