Crimea fuel depot ablaze following apparent drone attack

A fuel depot in the port city of Sevastopol, on the Crimean peninsula illegally annexed by Russia, caught fire on Saturday, causing a major blaze.

Preliminary information suggested the fire was caused by a drone strike, Mikhail Razvozhayev, the Russia-installed governor of Sevastopol, wrote on Telegram.

He said the fire at a fuel reserve in Sevastopol’s Kazachya Bay district engulfed “around 1,000 square meters,” but that the situation was under control and no one was hurt.

Sevastopol, which houses the naval base for Russia’s Black Sea fleet, has repeatedly been targeted in air attacks following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.

A spokesperson for Ukraine’s armed forces told Reuters that he did not have any information to suggest Ukraine was responsible for the fire.
