Railway bridge in Russia’s Samara region blown up by “saboteurs” | Abroad

“An explosive device damaged a pillar of a railway bridge” above the Chapayevka, a tributary of the Volga, an emergency services official reported to the Russian news agency ‘Tass’.

The regional railway company reports that an incident occurred due to “unauthorized intervention”. “Train traffic on this route is currently suspended,” it said. The Russian authorities have not provided any additional explanation for the time being.

Since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine two years ago, Russian railway lines have been sabotaged several times. Moscow accuses Kiev of being behind the sabotage attempts.
