A statement released on the Ministry´s website refers that the incident caused damage to civilian facilities, including power lines, a power generation plant, railways and residential buildings.

“There are no serious casualties. Necessary measures are being taken to eliminate the consequences of the sabotage,” the Ministry added.

For his part, local governor Sergey Aksyonov, reported that two people were injured, but explained that “their lives are not in danger.”

Aksyonov added that the detonation of ammunition has been completed.

Also, the head of Máiskoie administration, Nikolai Karpéts, confirmed to Sputnik agency that about 2,000 residents were evacuated as a result of the incident.
