A drone attack targeted an oil terminal in the Bryansk region, Russia. The country has opted not to deviate from the usual script, claiming that the alleged attack was unsuccessful, and the drone just "left a dent" in the reservoir, according to the Baza Telegram channel.

"In the morning of January 22, fragments of an unmanned aerial vehicle were found on the premises of the Russneft-Bryansk Oil Company in the town of Zhecha in the Starodub district," the statement said.

Russian propagandists have already asserted that there were supposedly no casualties, and "even no fire."

"The drone crashed into reservoir No. 3 but only left a dent," adds Baza.

About the terminal

According to Russian media, which are often far from the truth, this oil-loading terminal in the town of Zhecha has been fully mothballed for over six months. The terminal consists of an oil-loading ramp and four reservoirs for oil storage.
