Novokuibyshevsky refinery is one of the main producers and suppliers of top-grade RT jet fuel, the most popular fuel in Russia. The enterprise with an annual capacity of 8.8 million tons of oil belongs to Rosneft. It produces fuels for all types of transport: automotive, aviation, rail, river and sea vessels, lubricant components, bitumen, coke, and petrochemical products.

Interestingly, this is the second attack on this plant in a week. On March 16, it and the Syzran oil refinery were also attacked by drones. Fires broke out.

Earlier, the British newspaper Financial Times reported that the United States called on Ukraine to stop attacks on Russian energy facilities. This warning is allegedly motivated by the fact that drone strikes could lead to higher oil prices in the world and provoke Moscow's revenge.

It was also reported that the White House has neither confirmed nor denied the information that the United States allegedly asked Ukrainian special services to stop strikes on Russian oil refineries. However, Biden's administration hinted that they were mostly against such strikes.
