It was not until March 24 that an oil depot was extinguished in Zhitomir, the fire of which broke out after being hit by Russian kamikaze drones on the night of March 22. Such a violent fire is explained by the fact that before the arrival of the drones, a large batch of fuel arrived at the oil depot.
Attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure have become topical for the Russian military in recent days. This was emphasized by the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, stating that the targets of suicide drones are fuel depots and oil depots.
At the same time, on March 21, the Ukrainian armed forces themselves attacked the territory of the Novozybkov oil pumping station in the Bryansk region using drones. The region’s governor, Alexander Bogomaz, said there were no casualties, but to ensure safety, electricity had to be cut in five settlements.
Earlier it was reported that Taiwan had handed over nearly a thousand drones with swarm function capable of automatically interacting with each other to Ukraine. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is preparing to use the drones received during the counterattack on Crimea. As conceived by Ukrainian strategists, a swarm of drones should sow panic in the ranks of the Russian army.
