For over a month, Russia has been attacking Ukraine. World leaders have whined and complained, but they seemingly do nothing as Putin invades a sovereign nation. But it hasn’t appeared as if Putin’s plans have worked out. The Ukrainian people have been fighting back tirelessly. President Zelenskyy has proven that Ukraine will not go down easily.
We have learned numerous stories about how Ukrainians held off or beat back Russian forces. Russia has been forced into a stalemate in some regions and even retreated in others. But it might be that Ukraine has taken its resistance to the next level. Because reports are coming in about a fire at an oil depot in Russia. And some are saying it was a Ukrainian counterstrike.
From Daily Caller:
According to the news agency NEXTA, a series of viral videos show an oil depot in Belgorod, Russia engulfed in flames, and it’s possible it’s the result of a Ukrainian attack.
In the videos shared by NEXTA, a helicopter can be seen flying low off the ground and in another, something appears to be fired through air moments before a huge explosion. NEXTA reported local authorities are blaming “the fire at an oil depot in #Belgorod on an air strike by the #Ukrainian Armed Forces.”
A massive fire erupted at an oil depot in Belgorod, Russia. According to local authorities, it was caused by an airstrike by Ukrainian Armed Forces. It appears video caught a helicopter flying low to the ground. Next, there is a huge explosion at this depot. If this is a strike by Ukraine, it signifies a major shift in the ongoing conflict.
There is good reason to be skeptical about who is behind this attack, for now. Russian forces are blaming Ukraine, but their opinion, as you can imagine, is untrustworthy. Until the Ukrainian army confirms the attack, we need to take it with a grain of salt.
It’s a bit rich that Russia is blaming this fire on Ukraine after all it’s done. Russia has been attacking Ukraine for over a month. Millions of people have been forced to flee. Countless lives have been lost, not to mention the untold damage to cities, homes, and facilities. Yet Russia has the gall to complain about one fire?
Word spread that talks between Ukrainian and Russian negotiators are ongoing. There might be some kind of ceasefire in the coming days or weeks—which casts further doubt on Ukraine being behind this attack.
I guess we’ll find out more soon.
- An explosion spread a massive fire at an oil depot in Russia.
- Russian authorities are blaming Ukrainian Armed Forces for an airstrike.
- Ukraine has been fighting off the Russian invasion for over a month.
