WATCH jaw-dropping moment of ‘nuke-like’ explosion at Siberian ammo depot
The footage, filmed not far from the town of Achinsk, shows two massive blasts. One of them produced a massive mushroom-like plume of black smoke, which rose up from behind a forest. The second one was accompanied by a burst of sparkles, which look like fireworks but are actually a high-caliber tank and artillery shells flying through the air and burning as they go.
The incident happened on Monday and triggered the evacuation of thousands of people from a nearby village as well as Archinsk itself, which is located 20km (12 miles) north of the depot. One person was killed amid the disaster while eight others were injured, investigators confirmed on Tuesday.Also on rt.com Locals & soldiers suffer burns and shrapnel wounds after artillery depot explodes in Siberia (VIDEO)
