Explosion at gas export terminal in Russia, no casualties… controlled after hard work

Moscow. A fire followed an explosion at a gas export terminal near the Russian city of St. Petersburg on Sunday. The state-owned RIA Novosti news agency reported that the explosion caused a massive fire at the gas export terminal. After a lot of effort the fire has been brought under control and there is no information about any casualty.

The cause of the fire is not known. Russian news outlet ‘Shot’ quoted local residents as saying they heard several explosions following a drone in Ust-Luga, near Russia’s border with Estonia. Russia’s Defense Ministry said it shot down three Ukrainian drones in the Smolensk region near the border with Ukraine on Saturday night. It had earlier said it had shot down drones in Tula and Oryol in western Russia. There is no report of any casualty in these incidents.

It is noteworthy that for the last few days, Russia and Ukraine have been targeting each other’s energy infrastructure. Last Friday, a fire broke out at an oil depot in Bryansk, southwestern Russia, which Moscow blamed on a Ukrainian drone strike. The attack came a day after an attack targeting a major oil loading terminal in St. Petersburg. On Sunday, shelling killed 13 people and wounded 10 in the Russian-controlled city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, the city’s mayor, Alexei Kulemzin, said.
