A powerful multi-vortex tornado hit the small Russian village of Pesyanoye, just south of the city of Kurgan in the Mokrousovsky District of Kurgan Oblast, on June 18, 2017. The event was accompanied by heavy rain, strong winds and large hail.

According to available information, the tornado hit around 18:00 local time on Sunday, almost completely destroying the village. Several people were injured but there are no reports of casualties.

The rating of the tornado is still unknown, but some suggest an EF3.

Such events are quite rare in Russia, although the country saw several big and noteworthy tornadoes this month.

On June 17, a similar storm hit the nearby village of Mishkino. It is unclear if a tornado touched down.

On Tuesday, May 30, 2017, a very rare tornado touched down in Russia's Altai region and swept through Grishkovka village. The roofs of several houses were damaged while numerous homes lost power.

On June 1, tornadoes were also spotted near the cities of Barnaul and Samara.

The video below was captured in Slavgorodka, Omsk Oblast on June 9.
