Listvyazhnaya mine disaster

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Listvyazhnaya mine disaster was a mining accident that happened on 25 November 2021 in a coal mine in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia. Smoke from a fire in a ventilation shaft caused the suffocation of over 40 miners.[1]

A rescue gone wrong trapped miners and caused the deaths of at least five rescuers when the mine exploded.[2] It is the deadliest mine accident in Russia since the 2010 Raspadskaya mine explosion in the same region.
