Kiper mentioned that the attack damaged a grain storage facility, and nine trucks caught fire. The fire has since been extinguished. At the time of the attack, the region had an air raid alarm in effect for at least three hours.

According to, Russia has lifted the ban on diesel exports through pipelines and ports. The Russian government announced this on Telegram, stating, “The government has lifted restrictions on the export of diesel fuel delivered to seaports via pipelines, provided that the manufacturer supplies at least 50 percent of the diesel fuel produced to the domestic market.” Diesel fuel export restrictions from Russia, the world’s leading exporter of diesel, had driven prices higher worldwide. However, Russia also suffered from high domestic prices and shortages of gasoline and diesel in recent months, as it was advantageous for refineries to sell their products abroad due to high export prices.
