In Chuvashia, an explosion occurred on a gas pipeline pumping gas to Europe

In the Vurnar region of Chuvashia, a gas pipeline exploded, through which gas was transported from Western Siberia to Ukraine and further to Europe. This was reported by several Russian media at once.


The Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline was built in the early 1980s. It passes through the territory of Russia and Ukraine, and it crosses the Russian-Ukrainian border in the area of ​​the Sudzha gas measuring station in the Kursk region.

The explosion on the gas pipeline was very powerful, immediately after it a fire broke out. Residential houses are located near the scene of the incident. However, no casualties have been reported so far. It is only known that in the boarding school located next to the gas pipeline, its residents were forbidden to leave the building.

Such emergencies have become very common in recent years. This makes us think about the need for a more careful attitude to the security issues of the infrastructure involved in the transportation and storage of energy resources. We are talking about both safety precautions and counter-sabotage activities. Nevertheless, the risk of sabotage and terrorist attacks in the current situation, against the backdrop of the Ukrainian events, has not been canceled. Strengthening security and monitoring employees are only the very first measures that should be introduced immediately after such incidents.

Not only the Ukrainian special services, but also a number of Western states may be interested in sabotage on gas pipelines. They can count on the destabilization of gas supplies from Russia to Europe. The incidents on the gas pipelines are reminiscent of the sabotage on the Nord Streams, after which the transit of gas through them to Europe was stopped.

            Unidentified persons could initially cause minor damage and install a disguised charge in this place, and the arrived workers simply blew themselves up along with the gas pipeline. As a result, the version that the gas pipeline exploded as a result of ongoing repair work. I don’t know if it is possible to find the remains of explosives after a gas explosion

              When carrying out preparatory work (opening the pipe), the gas pressure does not decrease. Although repair work is carried out when a defect is found in the pipe. And this is not the first time! Is the safety and life of people not important, but only income is important? hi

              Repair work is different. To replace a nut somewhere is also a repair. And sometimes things are done that seem completely inconsistent with safety regulations. I recently flew here with a technical landing. On the starboard side, by the window. I see the plane being filled with kerosene. All passengers are on board.

              Why not? Gas pipelines have technological jumpers, which allow, if one pipe is damaged, to shut off the gas and let it go along a parallel thread. those. for repair work, the site could be blocked, but the gas itself still remains in the pipe. Look how many welders and "Bulgarians" died as a result of a safety violation when trying to cut an ordinary household gas cylinder (like it's empty), and here is a high-pressure pipe. Another question is what kind of work was carried out. There could be a failure (erosion) of the soil under the pipe, the soil does not freeze the same along the length of the gasket, the pipe walks a little, so it cracked at the seam, the gas went, at that time the soil was filled up, the equipment was working, a spark, an explosion. Well, this is one of the versions not in favor of sabotage.

        It's not about the name. It's about our policy, double standards (here it's white, here it's white but already black), It's about vague politics - the Army is at war, aligarhs are barking nearby. The fact is that someone is engaged in real import substitution, and someone is mastering money for this business. The question is - are everyone equal before the law, or will someone decide to punish this - and this is a godfather, he is not needed ???? And it's time to take the ultimate measure for traitors, saboteurs, saboteurs, Nazis, fascists...

          They weren’t even kept secret, they just didn’t make it to the front pages. So you are in full confidence that an explosion on the main gas pipeline is an incredibly rare event. What is this sabotage or complete wear and tear of equipment. This is not true.

      It doesn’t seem to be systemic sabotage. They let “refugees” with Nazi tattoos from Ukraine, and then they are surprised. Mrs. Crimea 2022 sings the anthem of the volunteer battalions Chervon Kalyn in Crimea and this is just the tip of the iceberg. the name of the wolf hook (Wolfsangel). In the south of Russia this year, cars with St. George ribbons, including minibuses, are covered with Nazi crosses by someone. Some people in the summer in the South of Russia go openly with a naked torso where they have one-on-one tattoos like Azov’s and everyone doesn’t care. Refugees. What can you do. Until 2022, there was nothing like this in the Kuban. And we pretend that nothing is happening. And that the worst thing is that we do NOTHING. And then we get it.

        A bunch of specialists in sabotage and repair work on the linear part of the main gas pipeline, led by the administrator, gathered. "And again the confusion about the insidious abroad began ..." There is very little information. But judging by the explosion and further prolonged burning, the pipe was under working pressure. The repair work indicated by journalists can be very diverse, not including mechanical impact on the pipe. It is possible that the team arrived at the site of the discovered leak for confirmation or discovered it during some other work. Judging by the fact that one person survived, although he received severe burns, the car on which the brigade arrived was initially outside the zone of the gas-air cloud, the wind changed, the cloud covered the car with the engine running, then the hot water explosion. The comrade who survived reportedly walked away to the car, ie. was at the very edge of the DHW cloud, perhaps it was also covered by the car body. Everything is much more prosaic, but the violation of TB will definitely be the result of the investigation.

    Such emergencies have become very common in recent years. This makes us think about the need for more careful attention to infrastructure security issues.

    “If a Ukrainian gets smarter, he becomes Russian”, - Lev Gumilyov correctly noted. But the opposite is also true: a Russian, dumbfounded by Western propaganda, turns into a Ukrainian who hates everything Russian. Our enemies are working on this...Recently, cars with "Z" symbols were burned in Yekaterinburg. The arsonists were not found in the city where the video cameras are, and those are equipped with facial recognition equipment? It can be assumed that they were set on fire by specialists from the SBU or the GUR abandoned beyond the Urals, but most likely juvenile adherents of the Kyiv regime. Recently, the deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Culture, Elena Drapeko, recommended that everyone who sees pro-Ukrainian propaganda in the blue-yellow combination (and this is the State Duma of the Russian Federation, where she is a deputy) consult a psychiatrist. Maybe in Russian society there is some kind of reasonable reaction, for example, to the yellow-blakyt flag given to the Galicians by the Habsburgs for not participating in the Hungarian uprising and to everything connected with the non-state formation of Ukraine?

      Now there are Russians who read the telegram channels of various Sharievs and other "comrades" like him, and they lose their minds rather not from "Western propaganda", but from clever insinuations on these telegram channels. As for the incident on the gas pipeline itself, then of course absolutely nothing can be ruled out from negligence during operation to sabotage for money.

        So far, there is no official information, but if we assume that this is a sabotage, then the answer to the question of who benefits from the explosion on the Urengoy-Uzhgorod gas pipeline (the last gas pipeline that carries Russian gas to Europe) is obvious. So of course this is not a coincidence.

        According to the data of the Central Bank since the beginning of this year, the volume of foreign currency deposits of Russian citizens has decreased by $36,7 billion or 38,05%. At the moment, banks have only $56 billion in their accounts, while in January the figure exceeded $93 billion. This is a record figure - this has not happened since 2008.

        Most of the money went to foreign banks, that is, they were transferred abroad. More precisely, even more than the outflow of foreign currency deposits left - about $ 37,5 billion. And this is only official! It is logical to assume that the “extra” billion is the cash that citizens of the Russian Federation hold in their hands. That is, a small part of them - about $ 100 billion or even more.

    The current situation speaks of the level of work of the fire inspectorate, and the merchants save / ignore the fire safety - the adams cut the money ...

    The Hussites need to be connected to the case from time to time - they have good rackets and reach the Jewish bantustat of Saudi Arabia; the transfer of the war is needed anyway, it is necessary to start with the shelling of the territory of the state of Florida by the Cubans there are military facilities there - there is a reason - let them transfer their prison to Wall Street - they shouldn’t do it in Guantonamo

    Smersh, of course, is needed!
    Well, and stopping gas supplies to Europe simultaneously with the adoption of a "price ceiling" for gas, maybe not bad? For Russia ... And force majeure during deliveries, that is, there will be no sanctions for disrupting deliveries, and let them heat houses with their "price ceiling" ....

    It would be time to take off at Druzhba already - we need to help the comrades decide specifically whether they are taking our oil or not. Then, you know, they refuse our oil from 2023, and immediately after these statements, an application for the next year is submitted. It's time to end this fable about a monkey and glasses, a monkey with a point back and forth, how much longer can this go on?

    First an explosion, then a fire. For a gas explosion, a large volume of gas must escape, and then a source of ignition. Given that the gas pipeline was laid almost in the village, the leak would have been quickly detected by smell and sound (working pressure of more than 10 atmospheres) by its inhabitants and called the gas workers. It didn't seem to be. So the pipeline collapsed instantly, with simultaneous ignition. Most likely the cause was his undermining. Of course, it is also impossible to completely exclude such catastrophic damage to the pipe from soil movement. But given that the pipe lies in a trench dug more than 50 years ago, this is very unlikely. With corrosion and thinning of the walls and welds at the joints of the pipe, fistulas and leaks first appear, which would also be noticed by residents.

      "For a gas explosion, a large volume of gas must be leaked," it is not at all necessary, the main thing is that the composition of the hot water supply corresponds in percentage terms. "the leak would be quickly detected by smell and sound (operating pressure more than 10 atmospheres)" - they would not be detected by smell, natural gas has no smell, and the odorant methyl mercaptan is added to the GDS when the pressure decreases immediately before being supplied to the low pressure network (i.e. e. when serving to the consumer). The operating pressure in the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod main pipeline is 70 atmospheres with a pipe diameter of 1420 mm. "When corrosion and thinning of the walls and welds at the joints of the pipe, fistulas and leaks first appear ..." - that's right, that's just the periodic diagnosis of the state of the pipe by various methods and the replacement of individual sections, sometimes very large.

    The first thing to do is to see who came to the settlement not far from the non-locals, and from this look.

    That's it. Something painfully often appeared at the facilities.
    It is necessary, probably, to think something / do something of the same labor protection in collaboration with the first department to vigorously ...
    And, then, the main thing is that the helmet is on the head. This will probably help a lot with an atomic strike ..

    Judging by the general pessimism, this fortified area was also left as a result of the regrouping. It was not for nothing that the leader praised - his among his own. what

    It is necessary to start shooting traitors who, commanding the bodies and forces of state security, allow these subversive actions.

      Yes, there all the commanders are entirely deputies of the edra, and other friends and their own people. Who will let them shoot them? Rather, the shooter himself will be taken far and for a long time.

    An explosion occurred on a gas pipeline pumping gas to Europe

    Something very often in Russia gas pipelines began to explode. It looks like banderlogs are operating in our rear.
