In total, five attacks by drones on tank farms and refineries are known, and the Ilsky refinery in the Krasnodar Territory was attacked twice within two days.
In total, out of 23 incidents, only in five cases the UAVs involved in the raid were shot down or neutralized by means of electronic warfare. In four more cases, the drone fell or flew off in an unknown direction after being detected. The remaining attacks ended in defeat of the target.
