Moscow: Russian forces destroyed fuel depots at the Kremenchuk oil refinery in central Ukraine on Saturday, cutting supplies to Ukrainian troops, a Russian Defence Ministry spokesman said.
“High-precision long-distance strikes from air and sea destroyed gas and diesel depots in the morning at the Kremenchuk oil refinery, which was supplying Ukrainian armed forces in the country’s center and east,” Major General Igor Konashenkov told a news briefing.
The spokesman also said that the Russian air defence has downed two Ukrainian helicopter gunships near the northeastern Ukrainian city of Sumy.
“Russian air defences positioned near the city of Sumy and the town of Urozhaine struck down two Ukrainian Mi-24 helicopters. They also destroyed 24 Ukrainian drones,” Igor Konashenkov said.
