Ukraine Hits Multiple Russian Refineries Overnight Despite US Warnings

Sharing is Caring!

Ukraine launched drone attacks on several Russian oil refineries overnight, Russian sources said on Wednesday, despite pushback from Washington urging Kyiv to reel in its strikes on Moscow’s oil infrastructure.

Russia’s defense ministry said its air defenses had intercepted two Ukrainian uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) over the Voronezh region bordering northeast Ukraine, another over the Smolensk region southwest of Moscow, and two over the border Belgorod region close to Ukraine.

“Our region is again under attack by Ukrainian UAVs,” Smolensk Governor Vasily Anokhin said in a post to a messaging app early on Wednesday. Fires broke out around the city of Smolensk and in a town to the east of the city “as a result of an enemy attack on civilian fuel and energy facilities,” Anokhin said. There were no casualties, he said in a later statement.
