The refinery is property of the Russian oil company Rosneft recently sanctioned by the US third package of prohibitive measures. The plant was burning, the Luhansk army reported.
Attack was launched from the airport in the city of Kramatorsk. The artillery shelled Luhansk and hit the city’s outskirts. Hydrogen storage facilities are located near the refinery.
“Firefighters are now trying to stop the fire burning,” said the Luhansk People’s Republic.
The shelling has deprived Luhansk of electricity and water supplier.
