Yes it appears the Briz rocket shortly after releasing ExoMars -
good thing it did not happen a few minutes earlier,otherwise
no ExoMars ?

It would appear the fuzzy looking images I obtained of the
Briz rocket are the result of this explosion. Originally it was
thought to be due to propellant venting, but it was established
there was no venting from official sources, so was put down
to propellant leakage. However it now appears it was the
remnants of the explosion - probably my image scale was too
small and too soon after the explosion to identify anything
other than ExoMars and the Briz rocket.
