Since February 24, explosions and fires have occurred on the territory of Russia and Crimea, on the territory of 72 military registration and enlistment offices, military bases, warehouses, and other military facilities, Verstka calculated based on open data.

Most often – 44 times – they set fire to military registration and enlistment offices and recruiting centers. The first case occurred back in February, four days after the start of the war. A 21-year-old resident of Lukhovitsy near Moscow broke two windows of the local military registration and enlistment office and threw bottles with a Molotov cocktail inside. Arson cases were recorded every month, but most of all in May and in September-October, after the announcement of “partial mobilization”.

Other facilities, including military units, ammunition depots, airfields, and other buildings associated with the military-industrial complex, have burned at least 28 times since February 24. Most often in August. In the last month of summer, fires occurred at facilities in the Moscow region, Belgorod region, and Crimea. Several incidents occurred at once on the peninsula’s territory – at airfields, an ammunition depot, and a military unit. Also, many fires were recorded in October, including on the territory of the arsenal of the Navy in the Yaroslavl region and the ammunition depot near Belgorod.
