The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) conducted a coordinated drone attack targeting strategic military and oil infrastructure within Russia, as reported by Ukrainian television station Hromadske. The station referenced its intelligence service sources for the information.

"A military airport and an oil refinery in the Krasnodar region were attacked. The SBU organized this massive attack," Hromadske reported on its Telegram channel.

The attack targeted a military base in Kushchevskaya, housing dozens of military aircraft. This base also includes a radar station and electronic warfare equipment, the post further detailed.

Ukrainska Pravda published a video on the X platform showing the aftermath of the SBU's attack.

Early the same day, Russian Radio Liberty reported on its Telegram channel about a fire at a refinery in Slavyansk, located in the Krasnodar region, caused by a drone attack.

"Veniamin Kondratyev, the governor of the Krasnodar region, stated that in the morning, a dozen drones aiming at refineries and infrastructure across several districts were intercepted and shot down," the report disclosed.

The refinery "partially suspending its operations"

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, 66 Ukrainian drones were shot down overnight above the Krasnodar region. The attack on the refinery was confirmed by the state-run agency RIA Novosti.

RIA Novosti reported that the oil refinery in Slavyansk (Krasnodar Krai) suffered damage during the Ukrainian night offensive. The drone strike led to the refinery "partially suspending its operations," Russian media outlets reported on social networks.
