Russian troops hit an oil depot rather than a gas station in Kharkiv with Iranian kamikaze drones on Feb. 10, regional governor Oleh Synehubov reported on Telegram.

The risk of another fuel leak persists.

Russia launched ten drones in total at the eastern Ukrainian city, resulting in two hits.

Approximately 50 people were evacuated, with four Kharkiv residents rescued from the flames, including a child. One man sustained burns covering 40% of his body.

“Currently, one tank remains full, so the threat persists,” Synehubov stated.

“If necessary, we will extend the evacuation and relocation zone.”

The Russian strike claimed the lives of seven individuals, including an entire family: a wife, husband, children aged four and seven, and a six-month-old boy. The victims have been identified, and efforts are underway to locate the infant’s body. Three additional residents sustained injuries.

Following the fuel leak, the hazardous substance spread throughout Kharkiv’s residential sector, sparking a large-scale fire that destroyed 15 houses.
