Belgorod: Kremlin Shocked at Ukie attack on Facility Deep in Russia


FULL DISCLOSURE: Sourced from Russian State-Controlled Media

This is a huge display of Russian vulnerability albeit not quite like having Israel pump a cruise missile into the Pentagon and blow up half of New York…or break down the doors of the Capitol Building… Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said that the reported Ukrainian helicopter raid on an oil terminal does not help future peace talks with Kiev. The facility, which is located in the Belgorod region, caught fire on Friday amid Russia’s ongoing military campaign in Ukraine.

“Of course, this cannot be perceived as creating comfortable conditions for continuing the talks,” Peskov claimed, adding that everything was being done to prevent disruptions in fuel supplies in the region.

Peskov added that President Vladimir Putin was briefed on the matter

The oil terminal caught fire in the region bordering Ukraine on Friday morning. Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov claimed that two Ukrainian helicopters crossed the border and struck the site. Two workers received non-life-threatening injuries.

The Russian Defense Ministry has not publicly commented on the incident. The Ukrainian General Staff similarly did not comment on the allegations in its regular reports on Friday.

The news website, however, quoted a Ukrainian military source as saying that the explosion at the terminal occurred “due to negligence, or to conceal someone’s corruption.”

Moscow attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements signed in 2014, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics in Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French brokered protocols had been designed to regularize the status of those regions within the Ukrainian state.

Russia has now demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev says the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.

  1. Is this not the same area where an ammo supply blew-up, as well as a Ukr missile struck some time ago? Now this? How very strange that they were not intercepted, at least after the attack? No? This is this same area Russia has been using for temporary staging as well. Yet, these choppers successfully entered, attacked and fled? These choppers would have been easily seen by eyeball, not to mention IR detection, but no? Ukraine makes no claims either? All very strange…and at the same time as ‘talks’. I cannot believe that after recent border incursions this could actually happen. Also, the damage was relatively minor. Looking at the footage, it also seems as though they both struck one area, instead of hitting as many tanks as possible. How did they manage to escape and not be tracked even after the attack? Is this total incompetence or something else? Somehow, incompetence doesn’t seem likely…especially considering the recent history of this area and the war footing Russia is on. Heads should be rolling, but no mention of how this happened at all. Again, very strange.

    • Of course, it was the morning news. And nothing good about it. This is called – relaxed. I am sure that conclusions will be drawn and the situation will be corrected. Each incident has a first and last name. The main thing is that none of the people died.
