Methane blast hurts five in coal mine in Pavlohrad, southeastern Ukraine

At least five miners sustained injuries because of the methane blast in a coal mine in Pavlohrad, Dnipropetrovsk region. 'DTEK Pavlohradvuhillya' company reported that on Facebook. 
'A methane blast took place at the extraction district of the 1130th lava, on the 370-meters-deep horizon at Heroiv Kosmosu mine, which belongs to DTEK Pavlohradvuhillya, at 9.15 p.m. January 10. The military-grade rescue unit reached the site immediately', said the press service of DTEK energy holding. 
The suffered miners were taken to a hospital with burns; the investigation into the accident is underway.
As it was reported earlier, pro-Russian militants started to flood Yunkom mine in the temporarily occupied Yenakiyeve of Donetsk region
. Almost 40 years ago there was a nuclear explosion performed so as to relieve the tension in the mountain massif. Thus, Donbas residents are facing the danger of radiation poisoning, in particular through the poisoning of the drinking water.  
Previously we wrote that out of 4 thousand dangerous objects established by Swiss experts in Ukraine, 17 represent a "radiation hazard". The most dangerous mine can be the Yunkom mine in Yenakiyeve, the city of steel and coal in the separatist Donetsk People's Republic, which is proud not only of its fellow countryman, Soviet cosmonaut Georgy Beregov, but also of former president Viktor Yanukovych who fled to Russia. Here in 1979, the Soviet Union tested the atomic bomb deep underground.
