    Ukraine launched a sweeping drone attack on Russia regions on Wednesday, causing a fire at Rosneft’s biggest oil refinery in what President Vladimir Putin said was an attempt to disrupt Russia’s presidential election.

    The day after seriously damaging Lukoil’s NORSI refinery, a Ukrainian drone attacked Rosneft’s Ryazan oil refinery, Russia’s seventh largest, 180 km (110 miles) from Moscow.

    Russian media said around 60 drones had been destroyed over Russian sovereign territory over just several hours.

    “The Ryazan oil refinery was attacked by a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle),” Pavel Malkov, governor of the Ryazan region bordering the Moscow region to its north, said on the Telegram messaging app.
