A fire at the oil depot in Russian town of Belgorod was allegedly caused by an airstrike by Ukrainian Army helicopters, Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov reported via Telegram messenger on April 1.

Early on April 1, the fire reportedly broke out at an oil depot in Belgorod, Russia, near the border with Ukraine.

"A fire at the oil depot occurred as a result of an airstrike from two helicopters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which entered the Russian territory at a low altitude," he wrote.
