You all seem very certain, can one of you explain the mechanics of it? how did what I assume to be an exhaust trail stay in place and lit up for 3+
Surely a self destruct would have resulted in a loud bang or something?

First, we have to determine the actual date/time of the video. When Scott Waring posts it, you never really know.
The most spectacular tracks occur when the plume trail is sunlit, from over the horizon. in northern latitudes, that lasts almost all night.
The squiggle is a common launch/ascent feature of high altitude winds blowing in different speeds/directions at different levels.
Any explosion in space won't send an audible 'boom' anywhere.
As a rule Russian rockets don't carry destruct systems, they just shut down engines during emergencies.
Solid-fuel missiles usually have the third stage spin to dump excess energy for short-range tests [you can't turn off a solid fuel engine once it
almost all ICBM flights -- US and Russian -- spin-up the reentry vehicles at time of deployment. That creates a brief spiral in the sky, if the plume
is backlit by the sun.
This is all pretty unearthly stuff and the images do look weird, until you figure out what 'ordinary' stuff in space actually looks like.
The UFO posters don't want you to know what's 'normal' in that new environment. They LIKE uninformed and misinformed target audiences.
