“The entire oil refining sector of Ukraine does not work due to Russian attacks” – Head of Naftogaz Ukrainy Yuriy Vitrenko

The entire oil refining sector of Ukraine stopped working due to Russian attacks, said Yuriy Vitrenko, chairman of the board of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, during a press conference. The recording is available on the company's YouTube channel.

“All oil refining in Ukraine is now not working due to the massive attacks of the aggressor, and it is difficult to ensure the logistics of oil products to the Ukrainian market, which is why there is a shortage of them,” he said.

On June 19, the head of the Dnepropetrovsk regional military administration, Valentin Reznichenko, reported that a fuel tank had exploded as a result of a rocket attack on an oil depot in the Novomoskovsk region. Two rescuers were killed, 13 people were injured. On June 18, an oil refinery in Kremenchug was shelled, said Dmitry Lunin, head of the Poltava OVA. “6 Russian missiles hit the Kremenchug oil refinery, which was not working anyway, and 2 missiles hit the thermal power plant. Fortunately, there were no casualties. This is not the first time the enemy has attacked these facilities,” Lunin wrote.

On the night of February 24, Vladimir Putin announced the start of a "military operation" in Ukraine. He justified this by the need to "save the country from neo-Nazis in power." Immediately after that, Russia began active hostilities. The international community reacted to the war in Ukraine by introducing unprecedented sanctions against the Russian Federation and its leadership.
