Black smoke over Russia: “Massive fire in St. Petersburg”

In Russia, there has been another fire in a major city, as reported by Igor Sushko on the short message service X, formerly known as Twitter.

In the corresponding post, Sushko writes: “Russia: Massive fire in a warehouse in St. Petersburg.” He also posts a video that is supposed to show the fire. Also visible are presumably civilians filming the fire with their mobile phones. Black smoke rises into the night sky above the fire. Sushko does not provide any information about the exact extent of the fire and possible damage in the post.

These claims have not yet been independently verified or confirmed. Therefore, they should be viewed with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflict parties to deliberately spread misinformation in order to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
