DONETSK (Sputnik) - Ukrainian security forces staged a drone attack on an oil tank farm in Donetsk, no explosion took place due to ammo failure, Alexey Nikonorov, a representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) in the Donbass security subgroup of the joint ceasefire control centre, said on Wednesday.

"This morning, Ukrainian armed formations attempted to blow up an oil depot in the city of Donetsk using a UAV. The UAV with an attached explosive device fell on an oil depot cistern but did not detonate immediately", Nikonorov said.

The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe's monitors were notified of the incident, the DPR official said.

"During the attempt to defuse the explosive device, an explosion occurred... Victims and large-scale consequences were avoided", Nikonorov added.

Ukraine has been waging war against the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk since 2014 when they proclaimed independence following a violent coup in Kiev. This October, the tensions escalated in the area, after the Ukrainian military boosted its operations, reportedly using UAVs to attack the DPR forces.
