A second explosion in as many days occurred on a railway in Russia’s Bryansk region. Regional governor Alexander Bogomaz reported that an “unidentified explosive device” went off near the Snezhetskaya station. No one was injured, but a locomotive and several freight cars were derailed. 

Baza writes that three explosive devices detonated at 7:48 p.m. local time not far from Snezhetskaya station as a freight train travel from Bryansk to Karachev passed by.

State-owned rail company Russian Railways reported “illegal interference with railway transport” in the Bryansk region. A Russian Railways announcement cited by state broadcaster RBC says that the blast derailed an engine and about 20 cars.

On May 1, another explosion derailed a train in the Bryansk region. Governor Bogomaz said the blast had blown up railway tracks on the Bryansk–Unecha section.
