A Ukrainian drone attack sparked a fire and damaged several storage tanks at a fuel depot in Russia's Krasnodar region, the region's crisis administration said on Thursday.

About six drones were destroyed and debris fell on the refinery near the village of Yurovka, the administration said on the Telegram messaging app.

It said several tanks were damaged, but no one was injured.

Drone attacks on energy facilities inside Russia's territory have become more frequent in the past few months with Kyiv officials saying they conduct them to undermine Russia's war effort and respond to Moscow's strikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure.

The oil depot was last attacked on May 2, according to Russian state media.
