OBOZ.UA's sources in the Ukrainian intelligence services said that the attack on the Ryazan oil refinery was an operation of the Defense Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate.

According to eyewitnesses, the first four explosions occurred on the territory of the refinery around 2 a.m., after which a large-scale fire broke out on the refinery's territory. At the same time, the local Ministry of Emergency Situations announced the threat of drones, which was confirmed by Malkov.

Drones were also spotted in the sky over the Voronezh region. Air defense systems were also operating there, and Russian media reported damage to houses in the Voronezh region allegedly as a result of one of the aircraft-type drones being shot down.

The Ryazan oil refinery is located in the city of Ryazan and is part of Rosneft. The declared maximum possible processing volume of the refinery is 17-18 million tons of oil per year. Most of the products are exported.

As a reminder, Politico noted that Ukrainian drone attacks on refineries in the depths of Russia not only forced the Kremlin to defend its territory but also achieved the unimaginable, namely "left the world’s largest petrostate running low on petrol."

As a result, diesel prices for Russian consumers have increased by 10% over the past week. Gasoline prices, which have risen by more than 20% since the beginning of the year, have already reached a six-month high.
