Explosion on Baikal-Amur highway in Russia: SBU operation
In Russia, an explosion occurred on the Baikal-Amur highway in Buryatia: media report a successful SBU operation. At the same time, the Russian Federation reports about smoke
The explosion occurred on a section of the highway in Severomuysky Tunnel. Despite the absence of official comments from the Security Service, the media sources report that the explosion of the highway was a successful operation of the Security Service of Ukraine.
It is specified that 4 explosive devices were detonated when a freight train was moving along the main line. The Federal Security Service is working at the scene, and railroad workers are trying to minimize the consequences of the explosion.
"In fact, this is the only serious railroad connection between Russia and China. And now this route, which Russia uses, among other things, for military supplies, is paralyzed," the sources said.
Russian version: there was smoke on the train
According to the press service of the East Siberian Railway, on the evening of November 29, while traveling through a tunnel on the Itykit-Okusikan stretch in Buryatia, the locomotive crew of a freight train noticed smoke in one of the diesel fuel tanks.
"The train was stopped, and two fire trains from Okusikan and Novy Uoyan stations were sent to the place of incident. The extent of the damage is being established. Currently, some of the cars have been taken outside," the statement said.
At the same time, train traffic was organized by a detour.
The Russian telegram channel SHOT reports that a fuel tanker caught fire while a freight train with 50 cars was moving: it contained 44 tanks with fuel, including aviation fuel, and 6 with ferrous metal.
According to preliminary data, two of the tanks had holes in them. One of the versions being considered by the investigation is sabotage.
- On November 11, an explosion occurred on the railroad in the Ryazan region of the Russian Federation, after which a freight train with 19 cars derailed. The Russians claimed "interference by unauthorized persons," while Ukrainian media reported a special operation by the GUR.
