Oil depots in Crimea, a peninsula annexed by Russia, have been targeted by Ukrainian drones.
According to the AFP news agency, the pro-Russian governor of Sevastopol, Crimea, Mikhail Razfozayev, has also posted videos and photos of the attack on the social networking website Telegram.
A drone attack on an oil depot sparked a fire that has been brought under control, but the governor says it will be difficult to completely extinguish the flames.
“Two enemy drones” attacked the oil depot, destroying four tankers, Governor Mikhail Rezfuzayev said.
According to the governor, there were no casualties in the attack, and the oil supply to Sevastopol will not be affected.
According to the pro-Russian governor of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, the third drone was shot down in mid-air, while the fourth was disabled.
On the other hand, the spokesman of the Ukrainian military intelligence, speaking to the local news website RBC, said that “the fire in the oil depot is a punishment from God for the killing of civilians, including five children, in Oman.”
He said that more than ten tankers delivering oil products to the Russian fleet in the Black Sea had been destroyed in Sevastopol, but he did not admit that the drone attacks were carried out by the Ukrainian government.
Sevastopol has been under frequent drone attacks for the past few weeks.
It should be noted that last Saturday, Russia launched more than 20 cruise missiles and two drone attacks on Ukraine, in which 23 people were killed. Two Russian missiles were dropped on a residential building in Oman, the capital city of Ukraine, killing all the people there on the spot.
Russia annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in 2014. In an interview this week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he would take Crimea back from Russia.
