Another train exploded on the main line of the Russian railway in the Siberian region of Buryatia. This is the second train explosion in a few days.

A person who witnessed the explosion on December 1 confirmed media reports about the explosion on the Baikal-Amur Main railway line, saying that the explosion occurred in the segment that passes through the Severomuisk tunnel, in the same place where another train had exploded. two days ago.

Ukrainian media cited military sources as saying the second train exploded on a bridge a few kilometers from the tunnel.

Russian officials have not yet commented on this case.

The 15-kilometer-long tunnel is the longest on Russia's railways. The Baikal-Amur Main railway line is heavily used for trade with China.

The load on the railways increased greatly after Russia began its occupation of Ukraine in 2022, due to the transit of goods from the port of Novorossizk and the Baltic ports.

In the last year, 149 million tons of goods were transported through the Baikal-Amur Main and Trans-Siberian railways, according to Russian Railways data./ REL
