In Belgorod, "shelter stops" made of bags collapsed in a few days: photos
In Belgorod (Russia), amidst the claims of local officials that "everything is under control" and the so-called "special operation" is going according to plan, shelters were installed at public transport stops. However, even without shelling, these "bomb shelters" began to fall apart.
Sand spilled out of the bags used by officials to save Russians from the shelling. Photos of the Belgorod bus stops were posted on Telegram.
Residents of Belgorod, Russia, began complaining on social media that the bomb shelters were crumbling before their eyes. Moreover, the Russians claimed that in one place, sandbags destroyed part of a bus stop, and in another, they fell and covered the sidewalk.
It is worth noting that "shelter stops" began appearing in Belgorod on January 10. In some places, officials decided to "protect" Russians from shelling with concrete blocks, but preferred sandbags.
It is noteworthy that a few days later, local governor Vyacheslav Gladkov responded to the complaints of Belgorod residents. The official claimed that the fortifications were being destroyed by "vandals."
As a reminder, in the center of Belgorod, Russia, the local authorities have installed a reinforced concrete modular structure to protect against shelling. This is the only such structure so far, and it is located in the very center of the city.
Earlier, local governor Gladkov made an appeal to the residents of Belgorod region. He advised Russians to evacuate away from the "shelling of peaceful neighborhoods" in the regional center.
