The authorities of the Russian region deny that the fire at one of the local enterprises is related to the hostilities started by the Russian military on the border with Ukraine.
On the evening of July 17, after the Russian occupiers began active hostilities on the border with the Sumy region of Ukraine, a large-scale fire broke out at one of the enterprises in the neighboring Kursk region of the Russian Federation. Local residents claim that the fire was preceded by the sound of an explosion in the air.
Kursk Oblast Governor Roman Starovoyt explained the sounds of gunshots on the border as the execution of combat missions by Russian troops on the border of Glushkivsky District with Sumy Oblast.
“That’s why the shots are heard here. I ask citizens to remain calm,” he wrote on the social network.
Immediately after the activation of the enemy in the Kursk suburb of the village of Voroshnevo, a powerful fire broke out at one of the enterprises.
As local media later reported, the sawmill was on fire. The leadership of the regional Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation denies that the cause of the fire could have been the situation at the border.
At the same time, eyewitnesses publish a video with the sound of an explosion that was heard before the fire.
It will be recalled that on the evening of July 17, the Russian occupiers shelled the village of Pecheniga in the Kharkiv region. As a result of the blow, according to preliminary information, one man died and another was injured
