In the Trans-Baikal Territory, after the descent of 10 cars with aviation fuel on the Aleur-Bushuley stretch, a criminal case was opened. The fuel got into the Aleur river, the pollution was eliminated with sorbents by the ZabZhD workers.

According to IA “Chita.ru”, The incident took place on 4 August. Freight train with fuel drove into the tail in front of a train... After that, the cars went off the rails. The prosecutor's office called the reason the unauthorized interference of workers in the traffic lights on the stretch. The traffic light was broken, and to keep trains running smoothly, workers installed temporary jumpers and a relay feed circuit. However, this was not provided for by the design of the traffic light, and it showed a permitting signal when the freight train was moving along the tracks.

Aviation kerosene flowed from two overturned tanks. According to the Trans-Baikal Interregional Administration of Rosprirodnadzor, analyzes of water samples from the Aleur River and soil showed chemical contamination.

The criminal case will be considered under the article on the pollution of surface and ground waters, which entailed significant harm, as well as on pollution and damage to land.
