Ukrainians struck oil depot in Russian territory, local governor says

Ukrainian helicopters carried out a strike on a fuel storage facility in Russia’s western town of Belgorod, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the border, according to the local governor.

“There was a fire at the petrol depot because of an air strike carried out by two Ukrainian army helicopters, who entered Russian territory at a low altitude,” Vyacheslav Gladkov writes on his Telegram channel.

Yesterday, explosions could be heard from an arms depot in Belgorod but the authorities did not provide any explanation for the blasts.

Footage posted to Twitter alleges to show the aftermath of the strike.
