Ukrainian ATACMS strikes destroyed a Russian oil depot in Luhansk region

In a fiery turn of events, Ukrainian forces launched a daring attack on an oil depot in the occupied city of Luhansk, using ATACMS missiles to strike a blow against Russian forces.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) shelled an oil depot in Lugansk on Tuesday, injuring five workers, the head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), Leonid Pasechnik, reported in a post on Telegram.

The AFU apparently utilized Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) in the assault, damaging power lines and setting a high-pressure gas pipeline on fire. All of the five injured have been hospitalized, as emergency units rushed to the scene to evacuate workers and prevent the fire from spreading further.

“All necessary measures to eliminate the consequences of the shelling have been taken at the moment,” Pasechnik wrote.

The operation resulted in a massive fire at the facility, injuring at least five employees and causing damage to power lines and nearby homes.

The incident, confirmed by various sources including the Moscow-installed head of the occupied region, Leonid Pasechnik, and Ukrainian officials, marks a significant escalation in the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia.

As the world watches the unfolding drama, one can’t help but wonder if this is the beginning of a new chapter in the region’s tumultuous history.
