S7 Airlines flight S73033, a Boeing 737-83N, aborted takeoff due to an engine surge.
The aircraft taxied back to the parking lot.

This is the second case of surge on a S7 airline plane at Ulan-Ude airport. The first surge of two engines occurred on January 27, 2024 on aircraft RA-73665, also operating flight SBI3034.
The surges were likely caused by contamination of the compressor blades, resulting from possible intensive use of anti-icing fluid during the treatment of aircraft with running engines.
