Russian FSB building on fire near Ukrainian border, causes unknown


At least one person was killed and two were injured in a blast and fire in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don on Thursday. The blast occurred at a building belonging to the border patrol of Russia’s FSB security service, according to local officials quoted by Russian news agencies.

Reuters captured footage showed thick black smoke rising into the air, near residential buildings and a shopping center in a built-up district of the city.

Rostov Governor Vasily Golubev said the fire appeared to have been caused by an electrical short-circuit.

“The spread of fire caused containers of fuel and lubricants to explode,” he said in a message posted on his Telegram channel.

Nearby buildings were evacuated and authorities opened an investigation, the governor stressed, adding that the fire had spread to an area of more than 800 square meters.


  1. I enjoy seeing things go boom, burn or crash in mafia land. It’s even better when it’s something like this FSB building.
