Several mines exploded right on the Belarus-Ukraine border last night?

It’s reported that according to preliminary information, this happened because of a lightning strike. The explosion damaged the bridge abutment and destroyed the railroad tracks in both directions. There is no information on casualties.

Yevgeny Silkin, assistant commander of the Joint Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, told Radio Svaboda that he has no data on the detonation of mines on the Belarusian-Ukrainian border.

«Detonation of mines in the border area with Belarus? I have no such data that we have mines detonating,» he said and suggested making an official request.

However, later representative of the State Border Service of Ukraine Andrii Demchenko confirmed the incident:

“According to the information I have, no one was injured. Separately, I’d like to add that there is a restriction on the movement of citizens on the border, especially near the border line. Therefore, mine barriers in certain directions important for the security of Ukraine are dangerous only for those who want to come to us with war ,” Andrii Demchenko stressed.
