In the Bryansk region, on the territory of the Druzhba oil pumping station, an improvised explosive device was found, stuffed with striking elements in the form of metal balls.
According to the Telegram channel SHOT, the dangerous object was discovered by the head of the guard of the facility, who immediately called the representatives of the competent authorities. The sappers who arrived found out that the explosive device was filled with plastic and a significant amount of metal balls. An improvised explosive device was defused by law enforcement officers. An investigation into the incident is currently underway.
It is also specified that the Novozybkovo station, on the territory of which an explosive object was found, does not pump raw materials, on the basis of which it is most likely that the purpose of the terrorists was to kill the employees of the enterprise. Presumably, an explosive device was dropped on the territory of the station from drone.
In November last year, an explosion occurred at the terminal of the Druzhba oil pipeline, located near the village of Stalnaya Kon in the Oryol region, allegedly as a result of sabotage carried out using an unmanned aerial vehicle.
Earlier it was reported about the suspension of deliveries via the Druzhba pipeline of Russian oil to Poland. The reason for the stop was the delay in payment for the supplied raw materials by Polish consumers.
