The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) has staged a new explosion on a crucial strategic railway in Russia. Another train was detonated in Buryatia, according to RBC-Ukraine's sources.

According to the informants, the Russians fell into the SSU trap twice. Another train carrying fuel exploded on the Baikal-Amur Mainline, a vital railway used by the Russians, including for military logistics.

Our sources indicate that this explosion marks the second stage of the SSU special operation to disrupt this crucial railway. The first freight train exploded directly in the Severomuysky Tunnel. To continue their journey, the Russians began using an alternative route, passing through the Devil's Bridge (Chortov Bridge).

"The SSU counted on this: during the train's passage over this tall 35-meter bridge, explosive devices planted in it were activated," the sources reported.

Russian Telegram channels state that six tanks caught fire as a result of the explosion. Even a fire train arrived to extinguish the fire.

About the Devil's Bridge, where the second explosion occurred

The Devil's Bridge is a semi-circular viaduct on the Northern Bypass of the Baikal-Amur Mainline. It was constructed in 1986, with regular train traffic starting in 1989. The bridge spans the Itikit River, reaching a height of 35 meters.

Situated on distinctive two-tier supports, it is the only bridge of this construction type in Russia. According to open sources, the bridge sways slightly when heavy trains pass over it (no such trains have used it since 2002, only maintenance trains, with the primary traffic going through the Severomuysky Tunnel). Thus, it has acquired a "bad reputation among locomotive engineers," who are afraid to pass over the bridge.

The first explosion on the railway in Buryatia

Yesterday, sources from RBC-Ukraine reported an explosion on the Baikal-Amur Mainline in Buryatia. A successful SSU operation paralyzed the only significant railway connection between Russia and China, which is also used for military shipments.

It involved an explosion in the Severomuysky Tunnel. According to the source, four explosive devices were triggered during the passage of a freight train in the tunnel. In Russia, they initially claimed a fire in the tunnel due to a "cable network short circuit."

Later, the Russians began asserting that the explosion was supposedly caused by "sabotage." A criminal case for "terrorism" was initiated in Russia.
