On May 12, one of the targets of the Russian missile strikes was the city of Kremenchug in the Poltava region.
According to the head of the region Dmitry Lunin, 12 Russian missiles hit the infrastructure in the city of Kremenchug. One missile was intercepted by the Ukrainian air defence system.
The missiles hit the local oil refinery. No casualties were reported. No one was injured.
Another missile reportedly hit the local railway substation.
The oil refinery in Kremenchug was already hit by Russian missiles. According to the Kiev’s officials, the facility was “completely destroyed” last week. However, according to local reports, the work on the oil refinery was partially restored. It is of strategic importance as it is used to supply the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AF) in the East of Ukraine.
The oil refineries, as well as railway substations, all around Ukraine are shelled by the Russian missiles on a daily basis. The AFU in the Donbass as well as civilians suffer the lack of fuel supplies in the whole country. The claims of the local authorities that the oil refinery was destroyed days ago are another attempt to protect it from the Russian strikes.
