Explosions rock Russian oil depot ‘after Ukraine reportedly fires missiles over border’

A Russian oil depot went up in flames overnight amid claims of cross-border attacks by Ukrainian forces.

The large fire sent huge plumes of smoke into the air over the city of Bryansk, which lies less than 100 miles from the border.

There is nothing concrete to link the fires to the Ukrainian war but there have been several similar incidents in recent days.

Speculation is mounting that Ukrainian forces could be mounting a covert campaign targeting infrastructure crucial to fuelling the war effort.

CCTV footage of the incident appeared to capture the sound of a missile before the oil storage facility exploded, but this could not be independently verified by this paper.

No one was injured in the incident, according to the Russian authorities which earlier this week claimed Ukrainian helicopters had been active in the area.
