Power-transmission line damaged in Moscow region

Three metal pylons of a LEP-500 power-transmission line were damaged by explosive devices in the Moscow region's Leninsky district; meanwhile yet another bomb was defused, an official from Moscow regional law-enforcement agencies told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

People working for the Moscow-based power network enterprise located three damaged LEP-500 pylons along the Crimea highway's 23-rd kilometer and 30 meters from the curb.

Operatives serving with the main police department and a local FSB (Federal Security Service) division arrived at the scene, finding out that pylon struts were damaged by an explosion. Moreover, they located a home-made explosive device on one of the struts, RIA Novosti interlocutor added.

FSB officers used a special robot to explode the bomb, with bomb-squad experts subsequently establishing that the home-made bomb consisted of three RPG-7 rocket-launcher rounds, an electric detonator and an electronic time-piece.

Two other rocket-launcher rounds, as well as a piece of fabric resembling the flag of the so-called Chechnya-Ichkeria republic, were found on the snow near the LEP-500 pylons, the source went on to say.

The LEP-500 network was switched off and all traffic stopped, thus enabling FSB operatives to complete their work, RIA Novosti interlocutor said.

The damaged pylons are currently being repaired; meanwhile the police continue to investigate this incident.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
