Fire breaks out at Russian oil terminal in Kalach after drone attack

Volgograd Governor Andrei Bocharov said on his Telegram account that anti-aircraft defenses thwarted the attack on Tuesday, but “drone fragments caused fires at a substation in the city of Frolovo and at an oil terminal in the city of Kalach-on-Don.”

The fire at the substation was quickly extinguished without any interruption of power supply. Firefighters from the regional service and the Ministry of Emergencies are working at the scene of the fire, which does not threaten residential buildings, the official said.

In recent months, Ukraine has focused its attacks on refineries, fuel depots and other oil industry facilities in Russia, mainly in the border provinces, but also in more remote areas such as Nizhny Novgorod, Bashkortostan and Tatarstan.

In response, Russia resumed regular retaliatory strikes against Ukrainian energy sector facilities.
