Fire at Crimea fuel depot extinguished after apparent drone attack, governor says

A fire at a gasoline storage facility in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol has been doused, according to the city’s governor, who was appointed by Moscow.

“A 1,000-square-meter open fire was extinguished,” Mikhail Razvozhaev reported on the Telegram chat app.

He had previously stated that no one had been hurt, and that the depot had been attacked by two drones, according to early information.

Sergei Aksyonov, the Russian-appointed head of Crimea, said on Telegram that air defence and electronic warfare forces on Saturday shot down two drones over the Crimean Peninsula.
