A train derails near Volgograd as a result of a drone attack

On the night of May 14, a freight train caught fire and derailed in the Volgograd region of Russia, which was allegedly attacked by drones. A total of nine cars carrying fuel and lumber overturned.

The so-called accident occurred around 01:00 near the Kotluban station, and in the morning, photos and videos from the scene began to appear online. The propagandists claimed that there were no casualties.

It is noteworthy that at first they said that the accident was caused by "interference from unauthorized persons." Later, they pointed to a drone, but without specifying whether it was an arrival or the work of Russian air defense.
