On the night of May 12, three important facilities were attacked within the territory of Russia. The operation was carried out by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense.

The Volgograd Oil Refinery was attacked. According to Shot, several loud explosions were heard in the area near the enterprise in the Chervonoarmiysky district of the Volgograd region at around 2:30 in the morning. Prior to this, the characteristic sound of UAVs was reportedly audible. The channel suggests that Ukrainian drones were supposedly jammed by electronic warfare (EW) means, resulting in their crash onto the territory of the oil refinery, causing a fire that was promptly extinguished. There were no casualties or injuries reported. The attack and fire at the plant were confirmed by the governor of the region, Andrey Bocharov.

Also, the oil depot Kaluganefteprodukt in the settlement of Lyudinovo and the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant were also targeted.

Sources indicate that military targets were hit in these attacks, all of which were carried out by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense.

It's worth noting that these Russian facilities had been previously targeted by Ukrainian intelligence services. For instance, the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant had been under surveillance by Ukrainian drones at least twice before.

Overall, four regions of the Russian Federation were targeted by air strikes overnight. For instance, three drones were shot down over the Bryansk region by Russian air defense systems, while two were downed over the Lipetsk region. According to information from the Russian Ministry of Defense, two tactical missiles, Tochka-U, were intercepted over the territory of the Belgorod region.

Additionally, drones attacked Shebekino, where power lines were damaged, leaving the city and several villages without electricity.
