A fire broke out in a large Russian fuel depot near the Ukrainian border

A fire broke out in a large Russian fuel depot near the Ukrainian border

A fire broke out in two large fuel depots in the region of the Russian city of Bryansk, about 150 kilometers from the Ukrainian border. The first fire started at about 2 a.m. (local time) at the Bryansk-Druzhba fuel depot of the state-owned company Transneft, which operates oil pipelines. This was reported by the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations.

Photos and videos in Russian media and on social media show that the sky is turning red and there is a strong development of smoke. There were no reports of injuries. No statement was made about the cause of the fire. According to Interfax, a fire also broke out in another warehouse in the same area, but this report has not yet been officially confirmed. The city of Bryansk is a logistics base for the offensive launched by the Russian army in Ukraine.

Russia has repeatedly accused the Ukrainian army of carrying out attacks on Russian territory, including a village near Bryansk. In early April, the governor of the Belgorod border region stated that Ukrainian helicopters had attacked a fuel depot.
