Reported by Reuters, an industry official said 27 of the 53 miners made it back to the surface, and that there had been an ejection of coal and gas.

In late 2007, 100 miners were killed in a devastating blast at the Zasyadko underground coal mine. It was the country’s worst mining accident since Soviet rule.
