Five Russian soldiers were killed on Thursday in the war-torn republic of Chechnya, puppet police said. The puppet soldiers were burned alive when the vehicle they were travelling in exploded in Chechnya’s second biggest town, Gudermes. The vehicle veered off the road, crashed into an electricity pole, overturned and caught fire, the puppet “interior ministry’s press service said.Â Â
“There were then explosions. Apparently their ammunition exploded,” the “ministry” said. It did not say why the vehicle came off the road in the first place.
