DIU conducts a large-scale cyberattack on Tatarstan: in the crosshairs of "Alabuga", where important defense industry enterprises are located

DIU hackers attacked communication networks of Tatarstan

The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine has launched a large-scale cyberattack on Russian Tatarstan. Internet service providers and mobile operators in this region of the Russian Federation were attacked.

The main target of the attack was the communication networks in the so-called Alabuga economic zone, where a number of Russian defense industry enterprises are located, including Iranian kamikaze drones. This was reported to OBOZ.UA by intelligence sources.

A large-scale cyberattack on communication networks in the main economic zone of Alabuga began on May 3. The target was not chosen by chance: Alabuga is home to more than 30 industries, including important defense companies.

This main economic zone brings the aggressor state 59% of the total revenue and 34% of tax revenues from all the country's SEZs.

As a reminder, on April 2, Russian media complained that explosions had occurred in Russian Tatarstan. The propagandists claimed that enterprises in Yelabuga and Nizhnekamsk were allegedly attacked by Ukrainian UAVs.

On that day, the Yelaz-Naftoprodukt oil refinery and the Shakhed assembling plant in the Alabuga SEZ were hit.

Russians claimed that the oil refinery in Tatarstan was attacked by a Ukrainian UJ-22 Airborne drone. This UAV is a development of the Ukrainian company Ukrjet. However, according to the characteristics of this UAV, its maximum flight range is up to 800 km, and the distance from the Ukrainian border to Yelabuga is at least 1200 km.

Instead, Forbes journalists suggested that the attack was carried out by a modified Cessna aircraft that can carry 500 kg of payload.

Meanwhile, ISW concluded that Ukraine's strikes on the Alabuga special economic zone in Tatarstan were a turning point and demonstrated our country's ability to reach enemy targets over long distances deep in Russia's rear. This is a necessary component of Ukraine's campaign to destroy the industries that support the Russian army.
