Three people were injured after a fire broke at the V.V.Chernyshev Moscow Machine-Building Plant – the latest in a series of unexplained explosions in Russia, a local social media account reported on Telegram on May 12.

The account alleges that the enterprise is engaged in the production of engines for MiG military aircraft.

According to the account’s reporting, the fire broke out in one of the enterprise’s buildings at about 4 a.m., burning furniture and supplies in the office on the second floor of the building, coating the premises in smoke.

Fire and rescue teams at the scene have already extinguished the fire, local authorities say.

On May 1, a locomotive and four railroad cars were set on fire, leaking about 12 tons of fuel after a railway bombing in Bryansk Oblast. On May 2, another locomotive and around 20 train cars were derailed due to an explosion, also in Bryansk Oblast.

Then, on May 4, the Ilskii Oil Refinery near the Taman Port in Krasnodar Krai erupted in a massive blaze. Another oil refinery in Russia’s Rostov Oblast was struck by a drone attack that day as well, as well as a military base in Voronezh Oblast.

In addition, an unidentified drone struck an administrative building in Starodub late on May 10, while another drone attacked an oil depot in Bryansk itself in the early hours of May 11.
