Resistance fighters rise: Black column of smoke over military camp in Russia

“There are repeated reports of partisans opposing the Russian president and his war in Ukraine. Now, the city of Yakutsk has been affected.

On the short message service X, formerly known as Twitter, the account Igor Sushko writes: “Russia: Partisans set military warehouse in Yakutsk on fire.” To support his claim, Sushko posts a video that is supposed to show the relevant incident. It shows a large fire, with black smoke rising into the sky. The fire department is already on the scene to fight the blaze. In the post, Sushko does not provide details about the exact extent of the damage.

These claims have not yet been independently verified and/or confirmed. For this reason, they should be considered with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflicting parties to deliberately spread misinformation in order to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.”
