The partial collapse of the bridge near the city of Sudzha was reported by the governor of the Kursk region Roman Starovoit:
Today, at about 11:20 a.m., a partial collapse of the bridge structures was detected on the 67th kilometer of the Sudzha-Sosnovy Bor railway. Now special services are working on the spot to establish the causes of the emergency. The railway line was used to move freight trains. There were no casualties. Nothing threatens the life and health of citizens.
Later it was established that the collapse of the bridge occurred as a result of undermining the connection of the span and the support of the bridge.
The town of Sudzha is located 10 km from the Ukrainian border, the railway line was used as a maneuver and is critical for servicing rolling stock that transports military equipment and ammunition.
There is no doubt that sabotage and shelling in military and strategic infrastructure facilities bordering Ukraine will continue.
This can cause panic among the population, including justified.
