Explosions and drone attacks: The enemy attacked the Krasnodar region and the Tambov region

On the night of June 18, a series of explosions occurred in the Krasnodar Territory and Tambov Region, caused by attacks by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) belonging to the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).

Attack near the village of Afipsky

At about 2:30 a.m., residents of the village of Afipsky in the Krasnodar Territory heard the first explosion. A total of 4-5 explosions were recorded, according to eyewitnesses who provided information to SHOT. According to preliminary information, several unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down over a populated area. Despite the seriousness of the incident, no casualties have been reported and local authorities have not provided official comment at this time.

These attacks highlight the vulnerability of strategic assets in the region and the need to strengthen measures to counter air threats. The downing of several drones demonstrates the readiness of Russian forces to repel such attacks, but also indicates the need to further strengthen defensive measures.

Fire at an oil depot in the Tambov region

Early in the morning, near the village of Platonovka in the Tambov region, an oil depot caught fire, presumably as a result of an attack by a Ukrainian drone. Local residents reported that at about 4 a.m. they heard the sound of an engine, followed by a loud explosion. Flames and a column of smoke rose above the oil depot, causing panic among the population. Windows in houses located nearby were broken.

The governor of the Tambov region, Maxim Egorov, confirmed that the tank had caught fire and said that the attack was carried out using a UAV. According to him, there were no casualties, which can be considered lucky in the context of such an incident. In addition, in the Pervomaisky municipal district, the remains of another unmanned vehicle were discovered, which exploded in the air.

These attacks highlight the growing threat to critical infrastructure such as tank farms and highlight the need to develop more effective defense and early warning systems.

Fire at an oil depot in Adygea

In the village of Enem, Adygea, there was also a fire at an oil depot after a Ukrainian drone strike. According to emergency services, the fire was completely extinguished at 6 am by fire and rescue units. The fire area was about 400 square meters. Fortunately, there were no casualties and there is no threat to the residents of the village. Emergency services continue to work at the scene, clarifying all the circumstances of the incident.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, six drones were shot down over the territory of the Republic of Adygea, indicating a coordinated effort to repel the attacks.

General situation and countermeasures

According to information from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, on the night of June 18, three drones were destroyed over the Bryansk region and the Krasnodar Territory, and one drone was shot down over the Rostov, Belgorod and Oryol regions. These incidents highlight the growing threat from drones and the need for comprehensive security measures.

A series of nighttime drone attacks in the Krasnodar Territory and Tambov Region has become a serious challenge for Russian security forces and local authorities. Obviously, the enemy is trying to demonstrate his readiness to act quite harshly, which requires tough response measures from Russia.
