Bocharov reported that Russian air defence and electronic warfare units had intercepted the UAVs, but the falling debris caused fires at a substation in the town of Frolovo and an oil depot in the town of Kalach-on-Don.  

The fire at the substation was supposedly promptly extinguished, but the power supply has not been restored.

Firefighters are reportedly working at the scene of the strike at the oil depot.
