Explosions, Massive Blaze At Russian Port Near Gulf Of Finland

A terminal at the Ust-Luga Sea Trade Port in Leningrad, Russia experienced a massive blaze shortly after residents reported hearing drones then explosions.


The Ust-Luga port is reportedly used by Russia to launder their own oil, which is restricted for sale in many nations because the the invasion of Ukraine. The port is supposed to be used for Kazakstan to get oil to sea for export.


The location of the port is far north of Ukraine, along the Gulf of Finland. If the blaze is the result of Ukrainian strikes, and not an industrial accident, it demonstrates Ukraine's continued ability to reach Russian assets far from its own borders.
