"The targets have been hit, and further reconnaissance is currently in progress," an anonymous source confided to Suspilne.

RBK-Ukraina reported that the operation in Oryol was completed by the HUR, with additional support from the Ministry of Digital Cooperation of Ukraine and the “Return Alive” foundation. This organization actively fundraises for the purchase of weaponry for the army.

Previously, Andrey Klychkov, the governor of the Orel region, made a statement that a pair of drones had exploded at the oil base in Oryol, causing injuries to three individuals. These drones hit an "object of the fuel and energy complex," starting a fire that was promptly brought under control.

Oryol, located in western Russia, is 230 miles south of Moscow and approximately 137 miles from the Ukrainian border.
