Authorities in southern Russia said a drone crashed at an oil refinery in the Krasnodar region early on Wednesday, an incident that followed reports of a fire due to a possible drone attack at another nearby fuel depot.
In a statement on Telegram, Krasnodar's operational headquarters said no casualties were reported in the 4 a.m. attack at the Ilsky oil refinery.
“As a result of the fall, the apparatus crashed, the plant's infrastructure was not damaged, and there was no fire,” the statement said.
In a separate incident Wednesday, reports emerged of a possible drone attack on the Afipsky oil refinery, also located in Krasnodar, that caused a fire but no casualties.
The two facilities are located about 20 kilometers (12 miles) apart.
