Moscow: Fires broke out at fuel and energy facilities in the Smolensk Region in Russia, as the Ukrainian armed forces launched a drone attack, said the region’s Governor Vasily Anokhin on Wednesday.

The region is “again under attack by Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles,” the governor said on Telegram, adding that the staff of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations is working on site and asked residents to remain calm.

The Russian air defense forces are fighting against air targets, he continued, noting in all likelihood, the fires occurred as a result of the Ukrainian attack on civilian fuel and energy facilities in the Smolensk and Yartsevo districts.
