It is not yet clear whether it was a natural accident or sabotage. The railway line is to be used by the Russian army to supply weapons and ammunition to Ukraine.

According to available information, the locomotive without wagons was moving at 40 km/h. At one moment, there was a sudden landslide.

In the photos posted by the @AlexKokcharov twitter account, the tracks look as if they were intentionally broken. However, it is unclear whether the tracks were damaged before or after the derailment.

According to Russian channel Telegram and Bragazeta, the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
