Russia: Oil refineries and military airport catch fire after the Ukrainian strike

Ukrainian drones bomb two oil refineries in Ukraine Russia And a military airport during a large-scale night attack.

This was stated by a source in the Ukrainian security services.

The source explained that Kiev struck “key technological facilities” in two refineries in the Krasnodar region in southern Russia.

The source added that the attack was launched by the Ukrainian Security Service, noting that drones also targeted the Koschevsk Military Airport in the same region.

The Russian authorities had previously spoken of a fire in a refinery in the city of Slavyansk, noting that they were forced to suspend some of their activities.

“Operations at the refinery have been partially suspended,” said Eduard Trudnev, security director at Slavyansk Echo Group, which runs the refinery.

He explained that “10 drones” struck the building, causing a large fire. He estimated that “there may be hidden damage.”

The Kremlin: There is no fertile ground for negotiations

At the same time, the Kremlin confirms, through Dmitry Peskov, that there is no fertile ground for peace talks between Russia and Ukraine at the present time due to Kiev's official refusal to negotiate with Moscow.

In 2022, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree officially declaring the “impossibility” of any possibility of holding talks in Kiev with Russian President Vladimir Putin, while leaving the door open to the possibility of holding talks with “another president of Russia,” as he described it.
