Donetsk, Oct 27 – DAN. Kiev forces have attempted to blast an oil terminal in the Kirosvskiy district of Donetsk, the DPR representative in the Contact Group's security subgroup Alexey Nikonorov said.
"Ukrainian armed formation keep blatantly violating all active agreements by committing new provocations at the line of contact. Another terrorist attack took place this morning when a Ukrainian drone carrying an explosive device crashed into one of the oil tanks, but did not immediately detonate," he said.
The DPR has promptly informed the OSCE SMM of the incident.
During the attempt to de-activate the improvised explosive device, it went off as its detonator was in the armed state, programmed for a certain time. No casualties and significant destruction have been reported.
"We consider such actions of the Ukrainian side to be a targeted terror campaign against civilian infrastructure and civilians of the Republic. We urge the OSCE to document the aftermath of the operation involving an attack drone and reflect it in their report," Nikonorov said.
On September 11, the same oil terminal was hit be an explosive object and caught fire. It was established later that the facility had been attacked by a Ukrainian drone that dropped an explosive device on to the roof of the tank field. The fire raged for several hours destroying 1,300 tons of fuel. *ot
