While responding to Russian blames that Ukraine mounted a helicopter attack on a fuel depot in the Russian territory, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated on Friday said, ‘I do not discuss any of my orders.’
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said, when asked if he had ordered for such an attack, “I am sorry I do not talk about any of my orders as commander in chief, the leader of this state. There are things which I only discuss with military armed forces of Ukraine and when they discuss with me.”
He said, “You need to understand that they were placing their shooting systems and firing missiles themselves on that territory that you mentioned.”
On Friday, a fire broke out at a fuel depot in Belgorod, a Russian city near the Ukrainian border.
Russia blamed Ukraine for the attack and said that an airstrike from Ukrainian helicopters caused it.
As per the statement released by the Russian Ministry of Defense on Friday, “Two(2) Ukrainian Mi-24 helicopters attacked on a fuel storage facility in the southern region of Russia.
As per the UK Defence Ministry in its latest intelligence report update that oil tanks at a depot in the Russian city of Belgorod mean probable loss of fuel and ammunition supplies to the Russian forces.
The update further made a suggestion that the Friday strike at the depot will likely add more strain to Russia’s already stretched logistic chains.
