A massive fire broke out in the Crimean port of Sevastopol City following a suspected drone strike on a fuel Storage tank.
What is the Complete News?
A suspected drone attack on a fuel storage tank in Ukraine led to a huge fire in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol.
The Russian-installed governor, Mikhail Razvozhayev, made a statement that the major fuel blaze was the highest ranking, depending on how complicated it will be to extinguish. The fire was burning for long hours.
But thankfully, no one got injured in it. Also, the fuel tank had no casualties and did not hinder fuel supplies due to fire. Mikhail added the four fuel tanks that got hit by the fire were already burned out.
What is the Current Situation Now?
Regarding the current situation, firefighters are doing their best to keep the situation under control. One of the Twitter users shared a video of flames breaking out in fuel storage tanks and thick black smoke rising over the sky.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine, Sevastopol has been the most targeted city for air attacks. However, Kyiv has declared its intentions to retake the Crimean Peninsula. Ukraine stopped openly claiming responsibility after previous attacks on Crimea.
But it has the right to attack any target in response to Russian aggression.
Destroyed Ukrainian Surface Sea Drone
On Monday, Mikhail reported that a Ukrainian surface sea drone had been destroyed by the Russian Military. It attempted to attack the harbour, and a second drone exploded. The explosion resulted in the shattering of several buildings’ windows.
But it didn’t harm anybody. After Russian missiles hit residential areas in Ukraine that led to 25 people dead, the fire broke out in Sevastopol.
Russian Evils can be Stopped
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian President, provided troops with better defences, including fighter jets. In a video message, Zelensky said without artillery and armored vehicles, effective air defence is impossible.
Therefore, it is essential to provide security to cities and villages. Zelensky even condemned the attack in the Uman on Friday, killing 23 people, including four children. In Uman, ten residential buildings were also hit by missiles.
Nighttime Russian shelling is also not stopping, as it killed a woman and her two-year-old daughter in the Dnipropetrovsk region. Earlier in the day, the Ukrainian President said these Russian evils could be stopped by weapons, and we’re trying to do our best.
