A large-scale fire broke out at the scene and is currently being extinguished. There are no reports of casualties.
“The damage will be assessed later once the emergency services have completed their work. I am sure that all damage will be repaired, whereas the reputation of Russia as a terrorist state is irreparable. Russia will remain a global pariah," remarked Naftogaz CEO Oleksiy Chernyshov.
