LIVE – Ukrainians hit Russian Oil depot in Bryansk

Ukrainians hit Russian Oil depot in Bryansk as they take the attack to the Russians on Russian soil.

Shelling has hit a village in the Russian region of Bryansk, which borders Ukraine, causing damage but no casualties, according to a local official.

Governor Alexander Bogomaz said in a statement that the village of Zhecha came under fire as air defence systems intercepted a Ukrainian aircraft entering Russian territory.

The blast wave from the incident damaged the casing of “technological buildings of the oil terminal” and the surrounding area, Bogomaz said, adding that no one was hurt.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces have not commented on the incident or whether Ukrainian aircraft entering Russian territory was intercepted.
