An “explosive device” detonated on the rail rails, according to the local governor, causing a Russian freight train to derrail on Monday in the western district of Bryansk, which borders Ukraine.
The suspected incident happened a day after a Ukrainian strike in the Bryansk area of Russia left four people dead and as Kyiv was getting ready to launch a highly anticipated counteroffensive.
The locomotive of a freight train derailed as a result of “an unidentified explosive device going off,” Bryansk governor Alexander Bogomaz announced on Telegram.
He said that there were no casualties.
According to Bogomaz, the explosive device detonated “on the 136th kilometer” of the railroad between the regional hub of Bryansk and the village of Unecha, in the direction of the Ukrainian border.
