Authorities say a detonation in the Russian border region of Bryansk derailed a goods train on Monday.
Alexander Bogomaz, the local administrator, stated that an explosive device detonated along the Bryansk-Unecha line, sixty kilometers from Ukraine.
Russian Railways reported that during the incident, which occurred at 10:17 Moscow time (07:17 GMT), the locomotive caught fire, and seven goods wagons derailed.
According to reports, the train was transporting oil products and timber. There were no injuries reported.
“An unidentified explosive device derailed goods train at the 136-kilometer mark on the Bryansk-Unecha railway line,” Mr. Bogomaz wrote in a Telegram message.
Also social media images depicted tank carriages on their sides with grey smoke streaming into the air.
The Leningrad Region’s governor, Alexander Drozdenko, said a suspected explosive device destroyed electricity lines early on Monday.
The incident occurred near the village of Susanino, approximately 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of St. Petersburg, he wrote on Telegram, adding that power was not interrupted to adjacent settlements.
According to Mr. Drozdenko, a second suspicious device was defused.
The attacks caused extensive damage to a logistics center in Pavlohrad, close to the city of Dnipro in central Ukraine.
A dozen homes were destroyed, and thirty-four individuals were injured.
