Two blasts with a difference of 20 minutes occurred on Sunday, June 22nd, on a railway in the Donetsk region of Ukraine. The routes of several passenger trains, including to popular summer Russian destinations, such as Anapa, Minvody and Adler, have been changed.

The second explosion occurred on the railroad as the freight train of RZD (Russian Railways) was traveling by, ITAR-TASS reports. The train was transporting chemical raw materials - pyrite cinders. No loss of cargo occurred as a result of the blast.
