Telegram channel "ASTRA" published footage of a fire at an oil depot in the Temryuk district of the Krasnodar Territory.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stated that air defense forces allegedly destroyed and intercepted five anti-ship missiles and 29 drones over the Krasnodar Territory, as well as one aircraft-type drone each over the Voronezh, Belgorod, and Tambov regions.

According to the Telegram channel "Krymsky Veter," the explosions in the port of Kavkaz on May 31 occurred around two a.m.

It is noted that 8-10 explosions rang out, which could be clearly heard in occupied Kerch.

The monitoring group also showed satellite photos of a fire in the port.

The Ukrainian authorities and the military traditionally do not comment on the strikes on the territory of the Russian Federation.
