(Reuters) – British military intelligence said the destruction of several oil tanks at a depot in the Russian city of Belgorod, close to the Ukrainian border, will likely add short-term strain to Russia’s already stretched logistics chains.
“Supplies to Russian forces encircling Kharkhiv (60 km from Belgorod) may be particularly affected,” Britain’s Ministry of Defence said on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).
Earlier on Friday, Moscow said Ukrainian helicopters struck a fuel depot in Belgorod, a logistics hub for its war effort, causing a huge fire. Ukraine denied responsibility for the incident.
