Today, a Russian factory responsible for manufacturing nuclear missiles for Putin’s army was consumed by a substantial fire. The blaze erupted at the Yaroslavl Motor Plant, also referred to as Avtodizel, which is situated 170 miles northeast of Moscow, the Sun reported.

As flames raged through the building, thick black smoke billowed into the sky, and approximately 218 employees were evacuated. At least seven individuals required rescuing from the wreckage.

The plant is responsible for producing engines for the Topol-M nuclear missile system and other equipment employed by the Russian military, such as Ural trucks.

In the last few months, Ukraine has alleged that a series of explosions and fires in Russia were caused by sabotage groups or supporters.
