Looked like the debris was building materials, not toppled trees. Let's take a wild stab:

Illegal dumping blocks river.  Water builds up, half-assed dam breaks. Voila'!

SearchN: kibbled: SearchN: raerae1980: Wow!   Wonder what caused all that debris?

I'm guessing large chunks of the forest around the river. What did they do to create that much water though? Draining a lake or a pond? Diverting another river?

Maybe it was part of the snow melt. I am going to guess that when the snow melts from the mountains it starts off slow then there is a sudden avalanche washes a lot of snow down the river at once.

Not like that. Way to sudden, with snow melt you get a steady increase. That was insanely sudden.

Could be upstream hydroelectric, that would be why they were set up and ready to film, since local government issues river-level warnings. At least they do in Maine, not sure about Russia lol.

Video location said SwedenSwitzerland. Yea I was thinking maybe sluice gates from a dam that aren't opened often.

Probably from all the reallly heavy rain in Central Europe over the past few weeks.

Switzerland (where this was filmed) and Sweden don't even share a border.

/that rush of logs was from a natural logdam that broke up suddenly and got washed downriver

Could definitely be snow melt. Problem is, snow melts steadily and carries debris down the river which sometimes gets stuck. The river backs up behind it and then either they break it up or it breaks free on its own, and this giant clog of debris goes down river at once along with the water that was backed up behind it.

Also causes flooding behind the clog if it doesn't break up fast enough. Happens with ice around here a lot.

Maybe that's just me, but I would step back a bit.  In case the water washed the dirt out from under your feet.

If you are going to leave the comma out of the headline, at least get all the words right.
