Several people were injured Tuesday in a drone attack on factories in Russia’s Tatarstan, more than 1,200 kilometers from the Ukrainian border. The Ukrainian server The Kyiv Independent or the Russian state agency RIA Novosti reported on it, for example.

A security source of the Ukrainska Pravda website said that Ukrainian military intelligence was behind the operation.

“This morning, industrial enterprises in the cities of Yelabuga and Nizhnekamsk were attacked by drones. No serious damage has been reported, the technological process has not been disrupted,” the head of autonomous Tatarstan, Rustam Minnichanov, informed in a telegram. “Unfortunately, there are injuries in the city of Jelabuga,” he added.

The Russian agency TASS, referring to the rescue services, wrote that there are six injured in Jelabuz.

In the meantime, footage of an attack on an industrial facility began to spread on Telegram.

Analysis

Ukrainian long-range unmanned kamikaze drones are penetrating Russian territory more and more frequently and deeper. Oil refineries became their main target this year. But other parts of the oil industry are not. Why?

Special Military Zone

There is a special economic zone near Jelabuga, which houses factories for chemical and mechanical engineering and metal processing.

Last June, the White House published a satellite image that showed the construction of a factory for the production of Iranian drones, precisely in Jelabuz.

According to the Ukrainska pravda server, the news subsequently appeared that several hundred students of the local polytechnic university participated in the assembly of Iranian Shahid drones.

In Nižněkamsk, a drone hit a refinery. This is another of the similar actions that Kyiv has been taking in recent weeks.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in an interview with The Washington Post that targeting Russian energy infrastructure is a legitimate military strategy. The strikes are in retaliation for Russian attacks on critical infrastructure and are in line with Ukraine’s military goals, Zelenskyy said.
