A Terrifying Smash-up

A dreadful thing happened last week. One of the fastest express trains of the whole Russia, Nevsky Express, which was going from Moscow to Saint-Petersburg and having more than 600 passengers on its board was blew up. At 9:34 pm, when train was going somewhere near Aleshinka – Uglovka towns, 7 kilos of TNT which were buried under the tracks detonated and as a result of which the train was derailed.





Two last cars of the train were derailed and underwent heavy damages because they were pulled along the tracks for more than 500 feet. Two hours after when the crew of medics and policemen were inspecting the scene of the accident and rescuing injured people, the second bomb detonated. Such a method of “Double blowing-up” is very popular thing among North-Caucasian militants and investigators assume that this act of terrorism was their work of their hands.

As a result of the accident more than 25 people were killed, more than 90 injured and 6 are unaccounted for. And these are just the official figures. Such a big number of casualties and injured people was originated because the train was an express one and could pick up the speed of 150 miles per hour. All the seats in the train were sitting ones and it led to such a high number of victims.

Such a case of train blowing-up is not first in the history of Russia. For the past 6 years two similar express trains circulating from Saint-Petersburg to Moscow and vice versa suffered identical accidents. But back then death toll was not so astonishing high as it is now and it makes this very case to be the biggest and the cruelest act of train terrorism in the history of modern Russia.
