Local news outlets covered the explosions in Nizhnekamsk. The employees of Nizhnekamsk CHP, Nizhnyokamsk Coal, Orgsintez, Taneko, Taif-NK, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, and Nizhnekamskshina are also currently being evacuated.

In the region, the airports in Kazan and Nizhnekamsk have ceased operations. Sources have stated that they are currently gathering information about the extent of damage to the facilities.

For reference:

It is essential to mention that in early April, a Russian Tatarstan enterprise that was over 1,000 km away from Ukraine was targeted in an attack. This enterprise specialized in assembling Shahed attack drones.

In addition, on the night of May 12, three critical military facilities were attacked on the territory of the Russian Federation. Ukraine's intelligence was involved in the UAV's attack on enemy targets.

Also, one of the largest factories in Russia, which works for the occupying forces, was attacked in February and April 2024. According to the media, raw materials for Russian companies dealing with nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles were produced there.

Furthermore, on March 20, the Ukrainian intelligence's "Liuty" drone launched an attack on the air base located in the city of Engels in the Saratov region of the Russian Federation.
