According to sources within Ukrainian special services, two fuel storage facilities in Russia’s Smolensk region were hit by drones allegedly operated by the SBU (Ukrainian Security Service) on April 24.

The attacks destroyed 26,000 cubic meters of Russian fuel and triggered large-scale fires, prompting evacuations. The SBU confirmed the attacks, stating that such facilities are legitimate targets as they support the Russian army in Ukraine.

Locals reported hearing explosions and seeing a glow and smoke from the oil depot near the village of Razdorovo, 10 kilometers from Smolensk.

Governor Vasily Anokhin acknowledged the fires at fuel and energy facilities in two districts, likely caused by an enemy attack. While there were no casualties or injuries, rescue and law enforcement services are investigating the incident.

The attacks on the fuel storage facilities are a huge blow to Russia’s military logistics and supply chain. The destroyed fuel was intended for the Russian army’s operations in Ukraine, and the loss will likely hinder their ability to wage war.

The SBU’s successful targeting of these facilities demonstrates their ability to strike at the heart of Russia’s military infrastructure.

Ukrainian Special Operations Forces also reportedly destroyed two Russian infantry fighting vehicles and an armored personnel carrier using FPV drones. This showcases Ukraine’s growing capabilities in drone warfare and their ability to effectively target Russian military assets.

Another oil depot in the Voronezh region may have also been hit, with social media videos allegedly showing a fire at an oil storage facility after a UAV attack. While the authenticity of the footage has not been confirmed, it suggests that Ukraine’s drone campaign may be broader in scope than initially reported.

The attacks on Russian fuel storage facilities and military assets are a huge escalation in Ukraine’s defense against Russia’s invasion.

They demonstrate Ukraine’s willingness to take the fight to Russia’s own territory and target their military infrastructure. As the war continues, it is likely that we will see more such attacks, as Ukraine seeks to weaken Russia’s ability to wage war and defend its own territory.
