The terminal operation of Novatek, the largest Russian liquefied gas producer located in Ust-Luga on the Baltic Sea, has been suspended due to a fire. The Ukrainian portal RBK-Ukraina reported that the fire resulted from an operation by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

Novatek stated "The technological process at the Novatek-Ust-Luga terminal has been suspended, and an operational headquarters has been established to eliminate the effects of this event. Losses will be estimated later," adding that the fire occurred due to an "external factor".

According to RBK-Ukraina's sources, the fire in the terminal resulted from an attack by SBU drones. "The hit was precise, causing a large fire that continues to this day. The Russians were forced to evacuate the employees," as reported on the website.

Earlier, Alexander Drozdenko, the Governor of the Leningrad Oblast, announced a fire in the terminal at the port of Ust-Luga on the Gulf of Finland, approximately 170 km west of St. Petersburg and 35 km from the border with Estonia.

The Russian Shot channel on Telegram reported that residents heard the sound of a drone followed by several explosions. Fontanka, the St. Petersburg portal, mentioned that at least two drones were spotted flying towards St. Petersburg.

The governor stated that a state of heightened alert has been introduced in the Kingisepp region, where Ust-Luga is located.

In recent months, the number of drone attacks on military, industrial, and technological targets in Russia has significantly increased. Moscow accuses Kyiv of these operations. Independent experts emphasize that drone attacks are aimed at objects increasingly distant from Ukraine.

Ukraine's Minister of Strategic Industries, Oleksandr Kamyshin, said this week that a Ukrainian-made drone flew 1,250 km on the night from Wednesday to Thursday and hit the fuel base in St. Petersburg in northwestern Russia.
