The blast took place Saturday in Dzerzhinsk, 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow. An investigation is underway but the cause of the blast has not been determined.

The ministry said 38 employees at the plant and 41 local residents sought treatment after the blast. It said 15 were hospitalized, one in serious condition.

Do they still make TNT? I know there are more powerful explosives now.

I remember my Father who was in the Combat Engineers in WWII, said TNT was safe to handle and use.

It’s Russia - it could have been alcohol.

Or a Muslim employee.

Lol. When I saw where the blast was, Boris and Natasha immediately came to mind. They don’t write ‘em like that any more.

Yes. Pretty good, realistic show, but the killing of the animals in the last episode was heart breaking.

The blast occurred at the Kristall factory aka JSC GosNII Kristall Research institute in Dzerzhinsk, Russia.

They are primarily R&R and testing.

The Kristall plant also produces the explosive component of the FAB-500 M-62 High Explosive Bomb.
