A Russian ammunition depot in the southern Kherson region has been destroyed, according to Ukrainian officials.
Video and images published overnight and Friday morning on local Telegram channels indicated a major explosion in the area of Brylivka, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) southeast of Kherson city.
"One of the important logistical hubs of the occupiers, the railway station in Brylivka, was destroyed in Kherson region. The Russians just brought equipment and ammunition there; everything has burned down," Serhii Khlan, advisor to the head of Kherson Civil Military Administration, said on Facebook Friday.
"People are reporting loud explosions and detonation. It is likely the oil depot was hit," Khlan added.
Satellite imagery shows a fuel storage site close to the railway in Brylivka.
Social media videos uploaded on a community Telegram channel overnight indicated multiple detonations in the area, but darkness prevented their accurate geolocation.
Photographs published by a Ukrainian official Friday showed damage in the area of the railway station.
The official, Yurii Sobolevskyi, who is deputy head of Kherson regional council, captioned the photographs as "Brylivka now."
"I want to appeal to everyone who is forced to stay in the temporarily occupied territory of the Kherson region ... If you were unable to evacuate (for whatever reason), please stay as far away from their military infrastructure and deployment sites as possible," Sobolevskyi said.
"The Ukrainian AF will continue to strike because there is no other way to free our people and our area," Sobolevskyi added.
