A massive fire erupted at an oil reservoir in Crimea after it was hit by a drone, a Russian-appointed official reported on Saturday. Mikhail Razvozhayev, the Moscow-installed governor of the port city of Sevastopol in Crimea, posted videos of the blaze on his Telegram channel. Razvozhayev said the fire was assigned a ranking of four — the highest possible rank, meaning it would be extremely complicated to contain.The official added that there were no casualties and that the incident would not hinder fuel supplies in Sevastopol.He didn't clarify whether the drone was Ukrainian. Ukrainian drones have regularly attacked Crimea, the peninsula in the Black Sea Russia illegally annexed in 2014, and its main port, Sevastopol — especially in recent weeks, as Kyiv is believed to be preparing for a major counteroffensive. Earlier this week, Razvozhayev reported that the military destroyed a Ukrainian sea drone that attempted to attack the harbour, while another blew up, shattering windows in several apartment Buildings. After previous attacks on Sevastopol and other areas, Ukrainian officials stopped short of openly claiming responsibility but emphasised the country’s right to strike any target in response to Russian aggression.
