Ukraine war briefing: Fire breaks out at Russian oil refinery after drone attack
  • A fire broke out at an oil refinery in Russia’s Samara region on Saturday after a drone attack, the regional governor said.. “Last night there were several drone attacks on regional oil refineries,” Governor Dmitri said. Azarov said in a regional government statement posted on Telegram. One of these attacks caused a fire at the Kuibyshev oil refinery, he added, noting that there were no casualties.

  • One person was killed and two others injured Saturday morning in a Ukrainian drone attack on Russia’s Belgorod region., Regional Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said. Furthermore, the Russian Ministry of Defense indicated that it had neutralized “12 Ukrainian drones” overnight over the regions of Bryansk, Belgorod and Voronezh, all three of which border Ukraine, as well as the Saratov region.

  • Ukraine has denied responsibility for the attack on a concert hall in Moscow, in which more than 60 people were killed. “Ukraine certainly had nothing to do with the shooting/explosions at Crocus City Hall,” Mykhailo Podolyak, an advisor to the Ukrainian presidential administration, wrote on X.

  • Russia shelled Ukrainian electrical installations on Friday in an attack described by kyiv as the largest airstrike against its energy infrastructure in two years of war, and presented by Moscow as revenge for Ukrainian attacks during its presidential election.. The missile and drone attack hit a large dam on the Dnipro River, killed at least five people and left more than a million others without power, forcing Kiev to seek an emergency supply of electricity from the Poland, Romania and Slovakia, Kiev officials said.

  • President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, speaking in his nightly video address, said the strikes proved once again that Russian attacks on infrastructure could only be stopped with more air defense systems and that this required a will policy on the part of Ukraine’s allies.. “Russian terrorism is only possible now because we do not have enough modern air defense systems, which, to be honest, requires enough political will to provide them,” Zelenskiy said.

  • Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a Russian publication on Friday that Moscow considers itself to be in a “state of war” due to Western intervention on kyiv’s side.. The comment marks a rhetorical departure from the “special military operation” language used by Moscow, an apparent move to prepare Russians for a longer, tougher fight.
