Ukraine says it struck big Russian steel plant on invasion anniversary:
Ukrainian drones hit a major Russian steel factory overnight, causing a large fire, a Kyiv source said on Feb 24, the second anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The governor of Russia's Lipetsk region identified the plant as one in the city of Lipetsk, some 400km north of the Ukrainian border, that is responsible for about 18 per cent of Russian steel output.
He said a fire apparently caused by a drone strike had been extinguished at the plant, operated by Russian steelmaker Novolipetsk (NLMK), and there had been no casualties.
The Ukrainian source told Reuters the attack, a joint operation by GUR military intelligence and the SBU security service, had caused a major fire and staff had been evacuated.
"Raw materials from this enterprise are used to manufacture Russian missiles, artillery, drones. Therefore, it is a legitimate goal for Ukraine," the source said, without specifying the location of the plant.
NLMK said in October 2022 that its Russian operations were not capable of producing military-grade heavy steels and did not supply goods to the military, only rolled strip steel for general civilian use.
Video posted on social media purporting to be from Lipetsk showed an explosion, with a orange flames illuminating the nighttime sky. --->READ MORE HERE
