Huge explosion rips through Russian oil and gas field amid fears of sabotage
A HUGE explosion has hit a strategic Russian oil and gas field amid suspicions key facilities are being targeted in sabotage attacks.
'Armageddon-like' flames shot into the sky from the giant blaze at the Markovskoye facility, the latest in a series of blasts and fires being linked to the war in Ukraine.
Dramatic footage shows the scene from hell caused by the 'jet fire' in the east Siberian district of Ust-Kut, Irkutsk region.
Putin has recruited tens of thousands of his fighters from Siberia, and the Irkutsk region has suffered a high mortality rate.
At least seven people suffered injuries in the blast at Angarsk which was in the same region as a blast three days earlier that was compared to an earthquake or plane crash for its force.
Recently there have also been explosions and fires at shopping malls as well as energy facilities.
