    At the Listvyazhnaya mine, workers were periodically given sensors that showed an incorrect level of methane concentration. RBC writes about this with reference to the miners who worked in the mine.

    According to the workers of the mine, the methane level sensors that were given to them were taped inside with adhesive tape in order to knock down the readings and thus hide the real dangerous level of methane concentration.

    “They’ll just bridge these sensors and that’s it. This sensor is glued with double-sided tape from the inside so that air does not enter there and it does not show the data that it really is. Everybody saw it, ”the driver Artem Simon told RBC.
