The death toll in the massive fire at a top-secret Russian Defense Ministry research facility has risen to seven, state-run TASS reports.

Although the cause of the fire is unknown, questions are being raised as another mysterious large blaze has erupted at Russia's largest chemical plant, which occurred hours after the fire in Tver.

The latter had engulfed a facility belonging to the secretive Central Research and Development Institute of Aerospace Defense Troops.

The latest mystery fire, which marks the 2nd in the day, is being reported by UK media:

Huge plumes of smoke were seen enveloping the Dmitrievsky Chemical Plant late this afternoon.

The cause of the fire remains unknown. Almost 150 plant workers were reportedly evacuated.

The facility in Kineshma, east of Moscow produces more industrial solvents than any other in Russia. It is less than 1,000km from the border with Ukraine.

Observers are starting to ask in connection to Russia's war in neighboring Ukraine: coincidence? sabotage operation?

Anti-Putin racecar driver Igor Sushko in tweeting the above video of the Dmitrievsky Chemical Plant going up in flames commented: "We are beginning to see a pattern develop."

And Western mainstream security analysts are also beginning to muse over whether active sabotage could be behind two large Russian facilities going up in flames in one day...

As ZeroHedge noted:

Russia has already been battling a string of forest fires - mostly in remote areas including in Siberia, thus the spread of these fires impacting government or industrial facilities is a possibility; however, there's been no word from Moscow authorities that the Thursday blazes are linked to this.

Adding to the mystery of the possibility of some kind of intelligence sabotage operation targeting these places, the now largely destroyed defense research facility was reportedly developing Russia's newest ballistic missile technology.

Ukraine's Defense Ministry tweeted out the following...

Russian media is reporting a large fire at a Russian Defense Ministry research facility in the city of Tver under mysterious circumstances.

The site is about 110 miles northwest of Moscow.

There may have been an explosion, given that RT reports two people killed and at least 20 injured, and aerial footage shows a huge blaze and thick clouds of smoke over the area.

Emergency and rescue personnel are on the scene.

The upper floors of the building are said to belong to the government's Central Research and Development Institute of Aerospace Defense Troops.

"According to preliminary data, the blaze spanned across some thousand square meters and caused a partial collapse of the roof," Russian media reports.

"The fire had started in one of the rooms on the second floor of the administrative building."

There have been reports of an uptick in forest fires in various parts of Russia, but the cause behind Thursday's massive blaze is as yet unknown or unclear.
