In the Rostov region of the Russian Federation, the Novoshakhtinsky oil refinery is on fire.
This is reported by the Telegram channel Base.
According to preliminary data, the fire started around 9 am at an oil refinery. The fire area is 50 square meters. There were no casualties.
Subsequently, the channel published a video showing that the refinery was attacked by a drone. The footage shows the UAV approaching the plant and then dropping explosives on it. There was an explosion and fire.
Voiceovers discuss that the drone “came in from Ukraine”. The other men call to each other in panic.
The Novoshakhtinsk Oil Products Plant with a design processing capacity of up to 7.5 million tons of oil per year was put into operation in 2009. On February 27, 2014, the Russians began the open phase of the annexation of Ukrainian Crimea. According to “schemes”, on the same day, the wives of deputies from the Opposition Platform for Life, Viktor Medvedchuk and Taras Kozak, received their shares in the Novoshakhtinsk oil products plant for about $40,000.
In April last year, the Russian Interfax reported that a major construction contractor had become the new owner of the Novoshakhtinsk Refinery PETON.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia has repeatedly attacked Ukrainian oil depots since the start of a full-scale invasion.
A few days ago, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the occupiers are trying to worsen the fuel situation in Ukraine by shelling the fuel infrastructure. He promised retaliation.
