An oil tank was reportedly on fire at the airport – and the fire is said to have raged for more than 10 hours after the attack.

Thick black smoke filled the sky, covering nearly 5,500 square feet as more firefighters rushed to the scene to control the inferno.

Kursk regional governor Roman Starovoyt said: “As a result of a drone strike near Kursk airfield, an oil tank is on fire. There are no injuries. The fire is currently being located.”

There have been no civilian flights from the airport since the beginning of the Ukraine war.

Suspected Ukrainian drones also targeted Sevastopol’s Belbek military airport – but were reportedly shot down by anti-aircraft guns.

It comes a day after a fuel truck reportedly exploded Monday at Ryazan’s Dyagilevo airfield – a base of Russian special forces.

The alleged attack killed three people, injured five and damaged an aircraft at the military base.

Images showed extensive damage to a nuclear-capable Tu-22M3 bomber.

Two of Putin’s Tu-95 nuclear bombers were also reportedly blown up in another suspected Ukrainian drone attack on Engels airbase in Russia’s Saratov region in an early morning raid.

The bombers have been used to blow up targets in Ukraine with non-nuclear weapons, particularly in recent weeks as Putin continued bombing the country’s infrastructure.

Two Russian soldiers were injured and hospitalized after the alleged Ukrainian attack, reports Visegrád 24.

Russia claims Ukraine used Soviet Tu-141 reconnaissance drones called Strizh to carry out the series of attacks.

The Russian Defense Ministry claimed the drones were hit by its anti-aircraft defenses – but falling debris caused damage to the plane on the ground.

A report by Readovka warned that Moscow could be attacked if the strikes came from Ukraine.

It said: “If the drone comes from Ukraine, then our enemy already has technology with a range of 1000 km, which means that Moscow could be attacked.

“There is only one conclusion: counter-terrorism measures on the territory of the Russian Federation should be strengthened as much as possible, retaliatory strikes should continue tenfold.

“Until the Russian response has a massive impact, such attacks will continue.”

Saratov Regional Governor Roman Busargin said there was “no reason for concern” after the airstrike on Engels airfield.

He said: “Information of a loud explosion and eruption at Engels in the early hours of the morning is spreading on social media and the media.

“I want to assure you that there have been no emergencies in the city’s residential areas.

“There is no need to worry. No civilian infrastructure was damaged.”
