No foreign-manufactured weaponry was involved in the recent drone strikes on enterprises in Russian Tatarstan, Ukrainian military intelligence (HUR) spokesperson, Andriy Yusov, said in a comment to Radio Svoboda on April 3.

Yusov refrained from confirming or denying the involvement of Ukrainian HUR or SBU security service in the strikes on facilities in Yelabuga and Nizhnekamsk.

"We continue to observe the sounds of explosions in the territory of the aggressor state, particularly on military objects directly implicated in Russia's genocidal war against Ukraine," Yusov said.

"We can affirm that in these events, weapons and means of foreign production from our partners were not employed. This is a fact."

Yusov didn't specify the exact means used to strike the targets on Russian soil, which are situated over a thousand kilometers away from Ukraine.

Yusov also highlighted the robust growth of Ukraine's drone industry, describing it as "developing very dynamically."

Russian media reported on April 2 that two drones had attacked Tatarstan's special economic zone near Yelabuga, which houses chemical and mechanical factories, as well as Tatneft's oil refining complex and the Shahed kamikaze drone assembly plant.

The attack on the drone assembly plant was organized by Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR), according to NV sources.

A facility of the TANECO oil refinery complex in Nizhnekamsk was also hit by a drone on the same day.

Six people were injured in the attack in Nizhnekamsk, which "did not cause serious damage," the local officials claimed.
