A recently opened power plant in eastern Russia was destroyed in a devastating fire. It is suspected that sabotage took place locally.
It is the largest power plant to be opened by the Russians in 2019.
The damage from the attack is estimated at about $ 500 million.
The plant provides electricity to one-third of Sakhalin’s population. In the context of a series of fires in Russia in recent days, there are many discussions that this is sabotage, about which Volodymyr Zhelensky’s adviser said that the invasion of Ukraine will continue.
Authorities say 30 people have been evacuated from the thermal power plant.
Authorities said the fire may have spread from the power plant’s turbine box.
The pictures show that the thermal power plant has been completely destroyed. Firefighters are intervening at the scene.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Sakal Regional Attorney’s Office. Appropriate steps have been taken to provide electricity to the area. Its preparation is also under the control of the prosecutor’s office, the press service said.
The plant is located in the Domarinsky district (west coast of Sakhalin).
In recent days, weapons and fuel depots have been targeted in Belgorod, Voronezh and Kursk.
