Tonight, an explosion occurred on the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) in Buryatia. This was a successful operation by the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), which paralyzed the only significant railway connection between Russia and China, according to RBC-Ukraine's sources.

The explosion occurred in the Severomuysky Tunnel, named after Bessolov, located in Buryatia on the Baikal-Amur Mainline. This railway connection is crucial for civilian and military transportation between Russia and China, and it is now paralyzed.

Our sources report that this sabotage was another successful special operation by the SSU, although the security service has not officially commented on it.

According to our information, four explosive devices were detonated during the movement of a freight train. Currently, the Federal Security Service (FSB) is on-site, and railway workers are unsuccessfully trying to minimize the consequences of the special operation.

Baikal-Amur Mainline is a railway in the Asian part of Russia with a length of 4,234 km, running from Ust-Kut on the Lena River to Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The central part of the route was constructed from 1974 to 1984, with three branches to the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The Severomuysky Tunnel, named after V.A. Bessolov , is a railway tunnel in the Republic of Buryatia on the Baikal-Amur Mainline (on the stretch between the Itiket junction and the Okusikan station), opened on December 5, 2003. It is the longest railway tunnel in Russia, spanning 15,343 meters.

China's ties with Russia

China has become more closely aligned with Russia since the start of the full-scale war in Ukraine. In particular, Beijing has refrained from joining the sanctions imposed by the United States against the aggressor country.

China and Russia share a mutual interest in challenging U.S. dominance in the global order as their relations with democratic countries become increasingly strained.

The United States has repeatedly warned China against providing assistance to Russia in the war against Ukraine or aiding in the evasion of sanctions.
