Ukrainian drones reportedly hit an oil refinery in Voronezh Oblast and an "industrial zone" in Lipetsk Oblast overnight on April 24, according to Russian Telegram news channels.

Russian media reported that a fire broke out at an oil refinery in Voronezh Oblast following a drone attack. Aleksandr Gusev, the regional governor, claimed that Russian air defense shot down four Ukrainian drones over the region.

A drone attack was also reported in Russia's Lipetsk Oblast.

Governor Igor Artamanov claimed that a drone crashed "in the industrial zone of Lipetsk Oblast."
