Following a suspected Ukrainian missile strike, a huge fire erupted at two oil storage deposits and a military site in central Russia.
The fires follow the enormous explosions at the Druzhba depot in Bryansk city, which is home to a Kremlin military unit.
Transneft’s Druzhba pipeline is the world’s longest oil pipeline and one of world’s biggest oil pipeline network.
Only one fire was initially reported, but it was soon followed by two Transneft oil installations exploding.
One of them occurred near a school in the city of Bryansk, and the flames could be seen throughout the city.
The city lies about 240 miles from Moscow, and it borders Ukraine.
The oil storage depot is likely to be important in ensuring that Russia’s troops have enough fuel for their offensive to seize control of the Donbas.
A fire was also reported at the military installation, but it wasn’t confirmed by the Russian authorities.
The Emergencies Ministry initially published details of a fire in the military facility’s Moskovsky Avenue area, then deleted it.
