An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.9 on the Richter scale jolted Russia's Siberian region of Irkutsk late yesterday.

The earthquake did not result in injuries or damages, Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation announced. This came after the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported earlier an earthquake measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale in Lake Baikal.

Earlier this month, an earthquake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale struck off the coast of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula. There were no reports of material or human losses, nor were subsequent tsunami waves announced.
