One of southern Russia’s largest oil refineries was struck by an apparent drone attack Wednesday, setting off a massive fire, authorities and media reported.
Footage published to social media showed a drone flying toward the Novoshakhtinsk refinery in the Rostov region five kilometers from the Ukrainian border before one of its facilities caught on fire.
“Employees noticed a Ukrainian drone. It crashed into the plant’s structures, after which there was an explosion and fire,” the state-run TASS news agency quoted an unnamed regional official as saying.
“One [of the drones] made an impact, crashing into a heat exchange unit after which a fire started. The second flew away,” another unnamed security official told TASS.
The regional Emergencies Ministry branch reported that the fire broke out at around 9:25 a.m. Moscow time and was extinguished within an hour and a half.
The latest attack, which has not been officially confirmed, follows explosions and fire at the key Transneft-Druzhba oil depot in Russia’s Bryansk region less than 100 kilometers from the Ukraine border in April.
Missile strikes on Russian territory have become more common after Moscow’s forces withdrew from Kyiv in late March and Ukrainian forces counteroffensive approached the Russian border.
