Recently, a video appeared on social networks where a tank serving as a monument is engulfed in clouds of smoke. The incident took place on the main street of the village where the monument was erected. The press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the region, in a commentary for RIA Novosti, confirmed the information. The incident was noted back on September 18, when the emergency services left for the T-34. There was no talk of a fire, there was smoldering debris, which over the years accumulated in almost all cracks and is the result of the activity of local hooligans. The department suggested that someone stuck a cigarette butt into the common pile, against which the smoke occurred. The arrived firefighters pulled everything out of the tank, stopping the decay.
The T-34 itself was not injured due to the incident. It is impossible to get inside the equipment, since the input is sealed.
