Images from the scene indicated that the drone struck the main refining unit, CDU-7, at the refinery, although the drone appears to have caused no serious damage.

An industry source who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity said the damage to the unit was not critical and that personnel were returning to the site.

A fire broke out at the refinery but was extinguished within 20 minutes, state news agency RIA said, adding that production had not been halted.

Ramil Mullin, mayor of Nizhnekamsk in the Tatarstan region southeast of Moscow where the refinery is located, said there was no serious damage.

The unit that was hit is responsible for around half of the plant’s total annual production capacity. The refinery accounts for about 6.2% of Russia’s refining capacity.

A military intelligence source in Ukraine, which has been at war with Russia since Moscow launched a full-scale invasion of its neighbor two years ago, said in Kiev that Taneco’s main refining unit had been hit, causing a fire. The source stated that the aim of the attack was to reduce Russia’s oil revenue.
