Ukraine's intelligence agency detonated an explosive on a Russian railway deep in Siberia, the second attack this week on routes supplying the Russian military, an anonymous Ukrainian source told Reuters.

It shows Kiev's willingness and ability to launch sabotage attacks deep inside Russia and disrupt Russian logistics far from the front lines of the war in Ukraine, Reuters reports.

The source said the explosives were detonated when the freight train crossed the Chertov Bridge in the Siberian region of Buryatia, which borders Mongolia and is thousands of kilometers from Ukraine.

The train was using the spare track as they were all diverted due to the attack on the nearby tunnel the day before.

Russian media outlet Baza reported that the diesel fuel tanks on the train using the backup route, as well as six freight cars, caught fire. From there, they add that there are no victims and that the cause of the explosion is unknown.
