Fires in Russia

Fires constantly occur in Russia, with oil refineries often becoming the epicenter.

In response to the ongoing attacks on Russian plants, the United States has urged Kyiv to cease attacks on Russian energy infrastructure, warning that drone strikes could lead to an increase in global oil prices. Meanwhile, in Ukraine, Russian oil refineries are considered legitimate targets for strikes.

In March, there were 15 drone attacks on 13 oil refineries in nine regions of Russia since the beginning of 2024. Significant damage was inflicted on eight facilities.
