It would be more interesting if they exposed the truth behind the holes. What is the ignition source in the frozen tundra? How much oxygen is there buried in the soil for the gas to mix with, natural gas still needs oxygen to create an explosive atmosphere. How many cubic tons of gas are required to expell that much soil? An explosion that big would be seen from space there must be records of the blast along with seismic records.
My guess is Russia tested new bunker busting bombs is this is a message to DC. how well they work.
