Fuel Tanks Burn After Ukraine Strikes Depot in Russian-Occupied Donetsk

A fuel depot in the Russian-occupied city of Donetsk was engulfed in flames after Ukrainian forces attacked the site in the early hours of July 26, according to Ukrainian officials and Russian state media.

This footage, published by the Ministries of Emergencies of the Donetsk People’s Republic, shows a crew working to extinguish the fire, which continued to burn hours into the morning.

Russian state media reported that shells “from 155 mm NATO-caliber guns” were fired at the depot, located in the Budennovsky district.

Storyful could not independently verify the type of projectile used to strike the depot.

Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesperson for the Odesa regional military administration, shared a video of the burning depot seen from a distance alongside a celebratory message confirming that Ukrainian forces were behind the attack.
