Russia: Anti-regime partisans target railway relay cabinet
Rebels in Russia reportedly sparked chaos in Moscow by halting the transportation of military cargo.
Footage, which Express.co.uk has not been able to independently verify, appears to show a fire at a relay cabinet.
The clip of the burning equipment was shared on Twitter on Friday (August 4) by Igor Sushko who regularly tweets about Russia’s war in Ukraine.
He captioned his tweet: “Russian partisans destroyed a relay cabinet in the Moscow region which halted all railroad traffic, including military cargo, between Moscow and Saint Petersburg yesterday (August 3).”
Mr Sushko has been approached for further comment.

News of the claimed partisan attack comes after Free Russia Legion reportedly clashed with Putin’s armed forces in June.
The pro-Ukrainian, Russian rebels claimed there was active fighting on the outskirts of a village in Belgorod Oblast, which shares a border with Ukraine’s northeast Kharkiv Oblast.
They claimed Russian soldiers destroyed a Renault car with civilians inside in a bid to stop the rebels from advancing into the village.
The Free Russia Legion is made up of dissident Russian soldiers and volunteers. Its aim is to use force to support the removal of Vladimir Putin’s soldiers from Ukraine before violently ousting the Russian President.
There is no suggestion the Free Russia Legion is behind the reported attack in Moscow.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian sea drones attacked a major Russian port on the Black Sea on Friday, damaging a naval ship, according to a Ukrainian official.
It is the latest in a series of strikes inside Russia as Kyiv vowed to bring the fight home to the Russians. Moscow claimed it repelled the attack.
The strike on Novorossiysk marks the first time a commercial Russian port has been targeted in the 18-month war.
The port — which is home to a naval base, shipbuilding yards and an oil terminal besides being key for exports — lies just across the Black Sea from Crimea, where Russia’s Defense Ministry said it thwarted another attack overnight, taking down 13 drones.
