On the night of January 25, a fire broke out at an oil depot in the Russian city of Tuapse in the Krasnodar Krai as a result of a drone attack. This is a special operation of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU)

RBC-Ukraine, Suspilne, and Hromadske media outlets report this, citing their own sources.

It is noted that the primary oil processing installation, namely the vacuum and atmospheric distillation units, was damaged.

"The SBU is striking deep into Russia and continues to attack facilities that are not only important for the Russian economy but also provide fuel for enemy troops. There will be many surprises ahead, the systematic work continues," the source said.

The Operational Headquarters of the Krasnodar Krai reported the fire.

According to preliminary information, no one was killed or injured. The area of the fire is 200 square meters. At the same time, the operational headquarters did not say what caused the fire.

Russian Telegram channels report that the fire could have been caused by a drone attack, and that explosions were heard in the city before the fire, probably due to air defense.

Local residents also reported seeing several drones flying before and after the fire.

Sergei Boyko, head of the Tuapse district, confirmed that a vacuum unit was on fire at the refinery.

"I ask you to trust official sources of information and not to post videos from the scene to avoid adverse consequences," he added.

Sochi airport was closed during the air alert. Four airplanes landed at the backup airport in Mineralnye Vody.

  • On January 18, the Russian Defense Ministry announced a drone attack on the Moscow and Leningrad regions. Instead, the media reported that the wreckage of the UAV fell on an oil terminal in St. Petersburg, which could be a special operation of Ukraine's intelligence service.
