Watch: Russian fuel terminal burns after Ukrainian drone strike

An overnight Ukrainian drone attack struck several oil storage tanks near the town of Azov in southern Russia, sparking a large fire.

“Oil product tanks caught fire in Azov as a result of a drone attack. According to preliminary information, there were no casualties,” the local governor said.

Video shows thick plumes of smoke and flames billowing out of what appears to be multiple oil storage tanks.

Ukraine did not immediately claim responsibility but has carried out similar attacks on Russian energy facilities before.

Meanwhile, Ukraine said it managed to shoot down all the Russian drones that were sent over the line of contact on Monday night.

Ukraine’s air force said its air defence systems destroyed 10 Russian drones in the regions of Zaporizhzhia and Dnipro.
