Ukrainian drones regularly attack oil depots and oil refineries on the territory of the aggressor country. Former Deputy Head of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation Vladimir Milov explained why it is important to constantly strike these targets.
Milov explained that in the Russian Federation there is a problem of vulnerability of the oil refining industry, since in the country In the aggressor there are not many enterprises that produce modern high-quality fuel. In addition to UAV attacks, problems arise at such plants due to sanctions, NBN reports with reference to Channel 24.
The former Deputy Minister of Energy said that an accident occurred at the Lukoil plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region . Apparently, this happened due to the failure of equipment, which was serviced by companies in the West before the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Over the past two decades, plants have been modernized thanks to Western technology, but the Russian Federation itself does not produce equipment for oil refining.
