After a drone attack on the First Plant refinery in the Kaluga region (Russia) on Friday, May 10, an oil leak occurred.

This was reported by the ASTRA Telegram channel.

As ASTRA found out, one of the drones hit the oil processing equipment of the First Plant refinery, and three fuel tanks also caught fire.

"In addition, as a result of the fire, an oil pipeline was damaged, leading to a spill of 5 tons of oil," the message says.

The attack on the First Plant refinery in the settlement of Polotnyany Zavod in the Kaluga region of the Russian Federation took place on the night of May 9-10.

According to local residents, a fire broke out after the attack on the refinery. The governor of the Russian region confirmed the attack but did not specify which particular enterprise was involved. However, local authorities have already reported no casualties.

It should be noted that later, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that drones attacked the First Plant refinery as part of a respective operation.
