According to the filmer the 100 metre deep sinkhole formed after a Sylvinite ore colliery was flooded in November 2014.
According to the filmer - locals now fear that a neighbouring pit, which is connected to the collapsed one, will get flooded too and cave in right under their houses.

The filmer says locals think that the Russian authorities are hiding the risks of sinkholes in the region and allegedly say that the pit is stable and does not increase. - Telegraph.
