Russia’s governor: Two Ukrainian drones hit fuel and lubricants depot in Kursk Oblast

Two drones attacked the Mikhailovsky Mining Plant in Kursk, one of Russia’s largest iron ore mining and processing facilities, according to local Governor Roman Starovoit.

Starovoit said that the fire was a result of an attack by Ukrainian drones, which struck at intervals of several hours.

According to a source from Suspilne, a Ukrainian state broadcaster, this was a special operation carried out by Ukraine’s Military Intelligence.

There were reportedly no casualties.

According to the Telegram channel 112, a drone attacked the Mikhailovsky Mining and Processing Plant named after Varichev in Zheleznogorsk, Kursk Oblast.

“The drone hit a fuel tank directly on the territory of the enterprise. Firefighters are now trying to extinguish the fire,” it wrote.

The Mikhailovsky Mining and Processing Plant is allegedly the second largest iron ore producer for the ferrous metallurgy industry in Russia. In December 2023, it was already attacked by a drone, damaging a power line at one of its facilities.

The Ukrainian military struck the Sergey Kotov ship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in occupied Crimea overnight into 5 March. The HUR conducted this mission in cooperation with the Ukrainian Navy and with the support of Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation. The cost of the sunken vessel is about $65 million.
