In Russia, the number of explosions and fires at various sites has increased in the last few weeks, especially in the regions bordering Ukraine. In total, there are more than 12 such incidents.
Journalists of the newspaper Daily Mail drew up a map of fires and “claps” (so in the Russian media called explosions) in Russia.

There have been several incidents in Belgorod, Russia and the region. In particular, on April 1, an explosion and fire occurred at the Rosneft oil depot. At the end of April, an ammunition depot caught fire in the region near the village of Stara Nelidivka. On May 1, explosions were heard in the city again.
The oil depot caught fire on the night of April 25 in Bryansk. In early May, a fire broke out at the Perm Powder Mill, killing several people.
On May 3, a truck parking lot caught fire near Tver, destroying nearly 40 vehicles. In the same city in late April, a large fire broke out at the Central Research Institute of the Russian Air Defense Forces, killing more than 20 people.
This is by no means an exhaustive list.
We will remind, advisers to the head of OPU Mikhail Podolyak commented on explosions in Russia. According to him, the Belgorod, Voronezh and Kursk regions of Russia have also begun to actively study the concept of “demilitarization”.
Podoliak added that the reasons for the destruction of military infrastructure in Russia may be completely different: “Until… divine intervention in the affairs of sinners who massacred people in Ukrainian Mariupol during Holy Week”.
At the same time, the British Defense Ministry said that Ukraine could “legally” attack military facilities in Russia.
