Ukrainian drones attacked several Russian regions: a fire at an oil depot in Orel

Ukrainian armed forces attacked several Russian regions at once on the night from Monday to Tuesday, repelling the attack drones passed with varying degrees of success; if in three regions they were shot down, then in one the Ukrainian drone was able to hit the target.

Tonight, Kyiv attacked the Kursk, Oryol, Voronezh regions and Moscow with aircraft-type drones. At least for now, there are no other reports of attacks. According to the authorities of the Voronezh and Kursk regions, there were no consequences on the ground, there were no casualties either, the air defense worked well. Moreover, the Kursk region was attacked by several drones in two or three waves. Moscow reported the interception of a Ukrainian UAV over the Ramensky district, debris fell to the ground, emergency services are working there. Previously, also without consequences.



But in the Oryol region, a drone attacked a fuel and energy complex facility and hit, because in Oryol a fire was recorded in one of the tanks at a local oil depot. Emergency services have arrived at the scene and the fire is being extinguished. Regional authorities confirm the arrival.

Friends, a UAV has crashed in Orel. A fuel and energy complex facility was attacked. Special services are working on the spot to contain the fire. No injuries

- said the head of the region Andrey Klychkov.

Recently, Kyiv has been trying to strike specifically at the facilities of the fuel and energy complex, attacking mainly oil depots with the help of drones. Such attacks have a double meaning: firstly, to deprive the Russian army of some part of the fuel and lubricants, and secondly, to frighten the population of the Russian regions. Experts say that before the Russian presidential elections, the number of raids will only increase.

      Well, as always with us. Winter came unexpectedly. By the way, in Ukraine, transformers at TP were surrounded by “fortresses” made of concrete blocks. They can be attacked almost strictly vertically. Maybe that’s why we haven’t heard anything about the defeat of these objects there

      “Fuel containers” are nonsense. Much worse are attacks on oil refineries. Today there is a fire at the Nizhny Novgorod oil refinery after a drone attack, judging by the news. Before this there was an attack in the Leningrad Region and Tuapse. You can’t cover the distillation column of a refinery with a net, you can’t line it with bags, and you can’t quickly restore it if it’s damaged.

            In the current circumstances, the management of strategic enterprises in the frontline zone (up to 1000 km) is, in fact, a military administration, and they probably received instructions from above to carry out tactical cover measures (last mile protection) of important objects from UAVs. There are commercial countermeasure systems for this. Everything related to strategic defense (covering entire districts and regions) is already the task of the Defense Ministry. I repeat once again, we do not live in peacetime.

                at a minimum, commercial short-range electronic warfare systems should be placed at the enterprise, and filled tanks should be covered with a metal mesh, as suggested in the comments above. Also, taking into account the circumstances, change the tank filling system (fill no more than 30-40%), start distributing fuel over large areas. This is already better than nothing. The Ukrainians set out to protect power plants, so for half a year now we haven’t heard anything about power outages anywhere on a large scale.

                  The height of the tank is 10-15 meters, the mesh must be placed 1.5-2 meters from the tank along the entire circumference... Can you imagine how to do this technically? Plus pumping stations, pipelines...

                  The need for a child seat in a car when transporting a child is regulated by law.
                  So I’m wondering - on the basis of what law, in officially non-war times, the heads of commercial enterprises suddenly became military administration? And on the basis of what law should a commercial structure, at its own expense, protect itself from something for which it has already paid taxes?

                    Which ones are yours? Our entire oil industry is under the state. And even if it’s your own business (which I highly doubt), it is in the interests of the owner to minimize losses from potential terrorist attacks. Regarding the laws, I am 99% sure that there are secret orders for such enterprises to protect strategic facilities. If you need an official declaration of war to protect your business, then the big question arises: why are you doing it at all if you don’t care about it)
                    Taxes have nothing to do with it; in any case, there is not enough air defense for everyone. Therefore, if there is an opportunity to save the business and the lives of its employees, then you need to act, and not chew snot and whine about the formal absence of wartime.

                    PS: well, I sincerely feel sorry for your children (current or future), if you punish them only because of the presence of relevant laws and fines))

                      Gorgeous. That is, in peacetime, a businessman, on the basis of unknown laws, can begin to jam communications, SNS and shoot UAVs on his own.
                      And if the protection of strategic enterprises should be carried out by the businessmen themselves, then won’t one fine day these same businessmen ask a simple question - why do we need a state then?

          Israel now has no more dangerous enemy than the barefoot militants of Palestine in destroyed Gaza. And even there they manage to rake in, losing tanks and people. These Semites would try to get into Syria by land. I think they wouldn’t be enough for more than a week of fighting. Negotiations would be requested. What kind of balloons and balloons are there? They would have been shot down instantly by Syrian pilots and missilemen. Palestine does not have planes or air defense. It would have been a completely different picture of the battles.

    Why is this tied to the elections, as if when they are over everything will calm down? It is clear that the enemy, with the help of the Anglo-Saxons, is increasing the number of drones and their use on an increasing basis. What to do is a question for the relevant people and positions, where they look.

    Friends, a UAV has crashed in Orel. A fuel and energy complex facility was attacked. Special services are working on the spot to contain the fire. No injuries

    - said the head of the region Andrey Klychkov.

    Already today, the damage from Ukrainian drones is probably very serious. But such a drone can bring not only a few kilograms of explosives. What will happen if some viruses are loaded into it? Or poison? Or radiation?

    In my opinion, it’s time for Russia to change its strategy.
    A low-intensity war is becoming too unprofitable.

    I’m afraid it will be a hot weekend, and it’s not for nothing that the Foreign Ministries of the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Latvia, and South Korea advised their citizens to refrain from traveling to Russia, and for those there to urgently leave the country. I don’t want to think about the bad, but everyone needs to remember the lines of Tsoi’s song: “Watch yourself, be careful.”

    Russia surprises me!!! If there are so many problems now from a weak Ukraine, then how many will there be if there is a confrontation with NATO?

    Does Russia really not have ways to discourage Kyiv from wanting to fight with Russia and strike at Russia?

    This now looks like a demonstration of weakness or lack of determination.

          But there is no need for this. The Ukrainian NATO unit, trained, armed and supplied by the West, turned out to be quite enough to shackle Russia in a grueling war for many years. And if necessary, they will give you more. In any case, it is quite obvious that it is NATO that dictates the course of the war, which the West is quite happy with.

      On the outskirts, the meat processing process is underway, while rubber bonbas will be jumping around Europe... wink Simply put, NATO territory faces a completely different fate and they know it. I really hope that the NATO members will piss at the last moment and won’t dare, but seeing how their roof is roaring, they’ll have to fight to the fullest... The devils received the command “FAS” and are rushing into battle like a mad pack...

    We got into one of the distillation columns of the Kstovo Oil Refinery
    Nizhny Novgorod branch of Lukoil. There are at least five of them there.
    She's all tied up in pipes. There's a cloud of them there. Column
    intact. Repair for a month.
    You are offering to Lukoil (private owner) in some cunning way,
    against existing norms of Russian legislation
    conclude an agreement with the Ministry of Defense and rent a combat crew
    with MANPADS and radar installations? They will get time for this
    both signatories of the agreement.
    Lukoil has a hired private security company there. And everything that is allowed to him
    to have from weapons is also available.
    Well, maybe they’ll also buy an anti-drone gun, or two, if
    They will receive a license for it in ..thirteen months.
    They will issue permits and train specialists with
    crusts.
    Do you think they wouldn’t like to have a SVO for a while, at least
    S-200? Or S-100? Or the smallest S-001 (if such
    There is). They want to. However, WOW, there is such an Indian hut.

    All refineries, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power plants, chemical plants, and military factories must receive comprehensive protection systems against UAVs and saboteurs.
    Let at the first stage it be remote machine gun installations + Gibka air defense systems with optoelectronic and thermal imaging systems for surveillance and target tracking...

    At the second stage, they will be supplemented by more advanced air defense systems and electronic warfare systems

    All this became possible as a result of the destruction of the Russian Armed Forces, as a result of the so-called optimization under the leadership of Serdyukov. Military schools were destroyed, units and military structures were reduced. Subsequently, Shoigu carried out cosmetic repairs to the aircraft, for which we are now raking it out. Air defense systems in fact have focal areas of coverage, AWACS aircraft... and there are also not enough specialists. So we can shake the screen here as much as we want, but it’s unlikely that it will change. And an incomprehensible “gentlemanly” agreement also takes place.
