He also indicated that his military bombed 389 military facilities at night in Ukraine, according to the Interfax news agency.

It also indicated the destruction of 35 Ukrainian control centers, 15 weapons and ammunition depots, as well as a number of sites in Ukrainian forces and equipment were stationed.

Previously, Moscow had made it clear more than once that it would continue targeting oil plants, which Kiev uses to supply its army.

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has accused the Russians of deliberately targeting oil depots and closing his country’s ports in order to exacerbate the country’s fuel crisis.

The largest fuel producer of Ukraine

Interestingly, Russian forces last week bombed the Kremenchug oil refinery, which is the largest producer of fuel in Ukraine, while the governor of the Poltava region confirmed at the time that the refinery was completely destroyed.

It also targeted other large oil fields, with the aim of paralyzing and disrupting the supply chain of Ukrainian forces.

Since its withdrawal from the vicinity of the capital Kiev in March, Russian forces have embarked on the second phase of their military operations in Ukraine, focusing on the east and south of the country, underlining that this phase is very important.

Moscow aims to hinder the resupply of Ukrainian forces in order to facilitate the advancement of its forces to the east in order to “liberate the Donbass region and protect Russian citizens from violations by Ukrainian forces”, as she said.

Especially that this region is of strategic importance, as its control has allowed Russian forces to open a land corridor between eastern Ukraine and Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014, especially after the seizure of the city of Mariupol.
