Russia said it shot down dozens of drones from Ukraine, some headed for an oil refinery

In the night between Saturday and Sunday Ukraine he accomplished several drone attacks against various areas of Russia, where the last day of voting for the presidential elections is underway (which will be won by the current president Vladimir Putin).

The Russian Defense Ministry said it shot down 35 Ukrainian drones, including four in the Moscow capital region. The city’s mayor, Sergei Soyanin, said there were no casualties or damage to buildings or infrastructure. Other drones were shot down in areas near Moscow, including the Kaluga region and Yaroslavl, which is 800 kilometers from the border with Ukraine.

The attacks also affected regions closer to the border, including Belgorod, Kursk and Rostov. The governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said a 16-year-old girl was killed in the attacks on Sunday.

In the Krasnodar region, about 300 kilometers east of Crimea, local authorities they reported of having shot down 17 drones that left Ukraine and headed towards an oil refinery. One of these caused a fire in the plant, which was put out after a few hours.

Ukraine has been carrying out attacks on Russian energy infrastructure for months. Those against refineries, in particular, have become more frequent in recent weeks: on Tuesday a drone hit the NORSI refinery in the Nizhny Novgorod region of central Russia, causing a fire and damaging the crude oil processing unit. The refinery is operated by Lukoil, Russia’s largest private oil company.
