Fire in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

On the night of June 30, loud explosions occurred in the Bryansk and Belgorod regions of Russia allegedly because of "36 AFU drones." At the same time, a massive fire broke out in Nizhny Novgorod in a warehouse with paint and varnish materials.

The smoke from the fire was visible for many kilometers, and Russians complained that their country was experiencing a "fire show." They posted videos on Telegram channels of a large-scale fire that local rescuers were unable to localize for a long time.

For example, the governor of the Bryansk region, Alexander Bogomaz, said that Russian air defense had shot down four drones over the Trubchevsky district that night. According to him, "there were no casualties or damage."

The head of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, also assured Russians of the elimination of drones. At the same time, he also claimed that a drone strike had caused damage in Gaivoron: two of them allegedly attacked an apartment building, where windows were smashed in two apartments and a car was damaged by debris.
