In the Crimean village of Sovetsky, a barracks burned down, the fire broke out at about 6 am (Moscow time). This is reported by local media, “Crimea. Realii”, as well as bloggers mainly in z-channels. According to Crimean media, two people died in the fire, but this information has not yet been officially confirmed. Also, according to unconfirmed reports, about 200 people were redeployed due to the fire.
The Crimean “social activist” Alexander Talipov, known on the peninsula as the author of denunciations to law enforcement agencies about people with pro-Ukrainian views, including Crimean Tatars, said that there were mobilized people in the barracks who heated it with the help of a potbelly stove. This could have caused a fire, Talipov writes.
“The bottom line is that mobilized from the mainland of Russia were sent to Sovetsky, but the place of deployment, to put it mildly, was not prepared to accommodate people. There was no light or heating. The locals helped the children as much as they could, bringing food and building materials. The barracks was heated by potbelly stoves, somewhere there was a violation of security measures, as a result of a fire. There are no data on the victims, unofficially reported two dead.
