The explosion occurred at the site of the gas valve unit near Balaklavskaya Street in the Central District. An unknown person planted an explosive device with a capacity of "200 grams of TNT". Baza claims that after the explosion, one of the pipes was slightly bent, but the crane assembly remained intact.
According to Mash, a 70-centimeter funnel remained in place, and a nearby trailer was damaged.
In the regions of Russia, drone explosions continue to be reported. Now such news comes not only from the border regions, where a high level of terrorist threat has been introduced due to the war unleashed by Russia, but also from the Moscow region. In early March, a second explosion occurred in Kolomna near Moscow - presumably, a drone exploded. Before that, a UAV stuffed with explosives crashed on February 28 near the village of Gubastovo near Kolomna, just 100 km from the Kremlin.
