A Ukrainian drone attack set fire to an iron ore facility in Russia’s Kursk region on Wednesday according to the Moscow Times, citing regional authorities. This was after attacks on Russia’s Belgorod and Voronezh regions earlier in the day.

  • The drone hit the Mikhailovsky Mining and Processing Plant in Zheleznogorsk, one of the largest iron ore mining and processing facilities in Russia.
  • “Today, as a result of an attack by a Ukrainian drone in the Zheleznogorsk district, a fire broke out at a fuel depot,” Kursk region Governor Roman Starovoit said on the messaging app Telegram.
  • The fuel tank came under fire, but there are no injuries, Starovoit added.
  • Wednesday’s attack in the Kursk region came a day after Ukraine struck an oil depot in the nearby region of Belgorod, setting at least one fuel tank ablaze. At least three drones were allegedly shot down also over Voronezh Oblast on the morning of March 6, the RIA Novosti claimed, citing regional officials.
