Mine Blast Kills 2 in Russia’s Bryansk Region


Two people were killed and a third was injured in a mine explosion in western Russia’s Bryansk region, regional authorities said Tuesday.

“On the territory of the Klimovsky district, local residents entered the restricted border zone, despite signs warning about the mine danger,” Byransk region Governor Alexander Bogomaz said on Telegram.

“Two residents died at the scene. One resident was injured. He has now been taken to a medical facility and is receiving the necessary help,” he said. 

Bryansk shares a border with northeastern Ukraine’s Sumy and Chernihiv regions — which has become littered with landmines since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022. 

Last week, a Russian state TV cameraman was injured in a mine explosion in the southwestern Belgorod region, local authorities reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
