Another explosion on the railway in the Bryansk region in Russia on the evening of 2 May led to a freight train derailing near the border with Ukraine. The initiative led to the derailment of a locomotive together with 20 wagons and to the destruction of a section of the tracks with consequent suspension of traffic.

The attack occurred at 7:47 pm on the rail section between Belye Berega and Snezhet’skaya, as Russian Railways (RZD) mentioned on Telegram. This section is part of the same line where another explosion occurred on 1 May. The line in question is the one running from Moscow to Novozybkov, near the Russian borders with Ukraine and Belarus.

The first attack was carried out between Rassukha and Unecha, closer to the borders. Neither attacks caused any victims. The first one was claimed by Russian anti-war movement Stop The Wagons, who carried out other similar initiatives since the beginning of the war. RZD claimed it already fixed the rail section where the first attack occurred and is currently is working on replacing the tracks at the location of the most recent attack.
