Russia faces fuel shortage due to attacks on refineries

After attacks on Russian oil refineries, Moscow faced a significant fuel shortage. The needs are now covered by imports from Belarus.

Due to Ukrainian attacks on Russian refineries and infrastructure, Belarus is increasing fuel supplies to Russia due to shortages caused by repairs at these refineries. According to local data, there is a surge in the production of aviation fuel and its delivery to Russia by rail in the oil refining sector of Belarus. This is reported by the Center of National Resistance of Ukraine in Telegram.

Members of the Wagner group and the security battalion of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus are responsible for the organization of transport security on the territory of Belarus.

Since the beginning of the year, Ukrainian security forces and the military regularly attack oil refineries in Russia. The first shelling took place on January 21, when kamikaze drones hit the Novatek factory. in Ust-Luz. But the heaviest shelling took place on the night of May 17, when Ukrainian drones hit the Tuapsin Oil Refinery. Note that the refinery exports diesel fuel and fuel oil. It has been out of service for the past three months after the attack in late January and only recently resumed operations.

Ukrainian drone strikes on Russia's energy infrastructure disabled 14% of the country's oil refining capacity.
