A massive fire is said to have broken out at a Russian oil depot after a suspected Ukrainian missile strike.

The blaze in Belgorod follows reports earlier in the week of a strike by Volodomyr Zelesnkyy's forces in the same area.

Footage from the scene appears to show a rocket landing at the site, resulting in large rising flames.

Vyacheslav Gladkov, governor of the region, said on his Telegram channel: "The emergency services went to the place of fire, measures are being taken to eliminate it"

He added that two people have been injured as a result of the blaze. Three streets near the site are being evacuated, according to Belarussian opposition news outlet Nexta.

Some reported their houses shaking from the impact.
