On the night of Wednesday, September 20, Russian occupation forces attacked Ukraine with Shahed-136/131 kamikaze drones. In the morning, it was reported that an oil refinery in Kremenchuk, Poltava region, was hit.
The explosions in the region occurred during an air raid alert at about three p.m. The Russian attack on the region was confirmed by the local military administration.
"The enemy is attacking the Poltava region. Stay in shelters until the alert is over. All the details later," said Dmytro Lunin, head of the Regional Military Administration.
He later clarified that the occupiers repeatedly launched drones on the region at night. The air defense system worked well against the enemy UAVs. Unfortunately, some reached their target.
In particular, a drone hit an oil refinery in Kremenchuk. A fire broke out there. All relevant services were on the scene, and the plant's operations were temporarily suspended.
"We know that there are no casualties as of now," the official said.
It should be noted that the occupiers launched attack UAVs in small groups. Air Defense Forces were working on enemy targets not only in Poltava but also in other regions.
