The Kremlin gives priority to protecting factories working for the «defense industry» rather than civilian enterprises.< /p>

This information was reported by the UK Ministry of Defense, reports URA-Inform.

In addition, the Russian authorities are trying to balance between protecting factories in the interior of the country and troops on the front line. This conclusion was made by the British Ministry of Defense, citing intelligence data.

British intelligence officers recalled that on April 2, the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked a plant in Tatarstan, approximately 1,200 kilometers from the border with Ukraine. The facility has been operating since July 2023 and is known to produce Iranian Shahed-type drones, which Russia uses to strike Ukraine.

The head of Tatarstan, Rustam Minikhanov, subsequently stated that “no one will protect us except ourselves.” According to British intelligence, this attack once again demonstrates the Ukrainian Armed Forces' ability to penetrate deep into Russia, bypass Russian air defenses and identify any objects used for war.

«The comments by the head of Tatarstan most likely demonstrate fear of such attacks. It is likely that the Russian Ministry of Defense is struggling to protect such installations and is content to balance the risk to civilian installations in favor of maintaining its focus on the front line, where Ukrainian UAV tactics and frequency of attacks continue to cause problems for Russian troops. ;, — summed up the UK Ministry of Defense.

Recall that it was previously reported why the United States will not shoot down drones in Ukraine, as they did in Israel: Kirby’s explanation.
