Russian authorities have claimed that Ukrainian drones purportedly attacked two energy sector facilities in the Kaluga and Tver regions, according to the Russian Telegram channel ASTRA.

According to the report, on November 26, after midnight, a drone reportedly crashed into an empty fuel storage tank with a capacity of 5,000 cubic meters at the premises of First Plant LLC in the Kaluga region, which is involved in oil processing.

It is also noted that on the same morning, a drone entered the territory of Gazprom's Torzhokskoye LPUmG in the Tver region. The drone allegedly fell within two meters of a gas pipeline. This enterprise serves as the operator of trunk gas pipelines.

Explosions in Russia

In the night of November 26, explosions were reported in the Moscow region, Tula, and some other regions of the Russian Federation. Russians immediately claimed drone attacks and alleged the functioning of air defense systems.

The Russian Ministry of Defense asserted that air defense forces had supposedly destroyed 11 kamikaze drones in four regions. The governor of the Moscow region even claimed the interception of 5 drones, while in the Bryansk region, 4 drones were reportedly intercepted.

The situation was most pronounced in Tula. The governor of the Tula region, Alexey Dyumin, stated that air defense systems had shot down two drones in Tula. However, one drone crashed into an apartment on the 12th floor of a multi-story building.

Earlier, the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine had warned residents of Moscow and other Russian cities that drone attacks would increase.
