The images, published by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Russian service on Monday, 8 July, reveal an extensive burned area around the depot and two smoke-emitting hotspots.

Ukraine’s Security Service reportedly carried out a drone attack on an ammunition depot in the Podgorensky district of Russia’s Voronezh Oblast on 7 July

Local authorities stated that all UAVs were shot down, but “a farm building caught fire as a result of the fall of debris from one of the drones.”

Ukrainian media sources claim the Sergeyevka depot, covering an area of 9,000 square meters, housed “surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles, tank and artillery shells, and boxes of small arms ammunition.” These sources report that the facility was used to supply Russian troops engaged in combat operations in Ukraine.

Voronezh Governor Alexander Gusev declared an emergency in the affected area and announced the evacuation of about 50 residents from nearby settlements. No civilians were injured, reportedly.
