Russian missile strike Ukrainian industrial hub

KYIV, Ukraine — Between 8 and 12 Russian missiles hit the oil refinery and other infrastructure in the Ukrainian industrial hub of Kremenchuk today, the acting governor of the central Poltava region says.

In a Telegram post, Dmytro Lunin urges residents to remain in underground shelters, citing the “persistent” threat of airstrikes.

In early April, Lunin has said that the Kremenchuk refinery — Ukraine’s only remaining fully functional facility of its kind at the time — was no longer operational following a Russian attack. Moscow claimed to have targeted the refinery again at the end of the month, and to have destroyed further fuel production and storage facilities.
