Thousands of square meters: Blaze inferno in Russia

A major fire has broken out again in Russia, reports Igor Sushko on the short message platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

As proof, he posts a video. In it, you can see firefighters battling against flames that rise several meters high. Black smoke billows into the night sky. Accompanying the video, Sushko writes: “Russia: A massive fire in a warehouse in Izhevsk, spreading over almost an acre (3,800 square meters).”

Izhevsk is the capital of the Republic of Udmurtia in the Russian Federation. It has a population of around 630,000. Sushko does not provide specific details about a possible cause of the fire.

These claims have not yet been independently verified and/or confirmed. Therefore, they should be viewed with caution. In times of war, it can be advantageous for parties involved in the conflict to deliberately spread false information to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the enemy.
