Poltava region came under attack on the night of November 1, resulting in a fire after a direct hit, according to the governor of Poltava Regional Military Administration, Filip Pronin.

An air raid alert in the region lasted for more than four hours. Russian forces launched an attack using drones, which led to a fire due to a strike on the oil refinery plant in Kremenchuk.

"Unfortunately, there was a direct hit on the Kremenchuk oil refinery. A fire broke out, but it has been extinguished by the rescue teams. The situation is under control, and there are no confirmed casualties at this time. Information about any structural damage is currently being assessed. The facility is not operational, and all relevant services are on-site," stated the governor.
