Drones atatck Russian classified plant located 80 km from Ukrainian border.

Drones attacked the plant Slava in the night if 6 December, falling fell three meters from diesel fuel tanks, the Russian Telegram channel Baza reported.

Presumably, two drones flew into the territory of the plant, located in Bryansk Oblast 80 km from the Ukrainian border. They fell and exploded three meters away from five-ton fuel tanks with diesel fuel. As the tanks were empty at this moment, a “serious fire” was avoided, Baza claimed. However, a video shared by a local Telegram channel shows that a rayher

This is the second such attack on Slava, a federal state government institution owned by the Federal Reserve Agency. The first one happened on 30 November, when three tanks with 15,000 tons of aviation kerosene caught fire.
Rosrezerv is engaged in the formation, storage and maintenance of stocks of the so-called state material reserve, that is, stocks in case of war or emergencies. The department is obliged to store everything — from petroleum products and metals to rubber boats and tents, from grain and stew to trucks and large diameter pipes, Forbes noted.

Rosrezerve traces its history back to 1931, when Sovie dictator Stalin ordered to create a Committee of Reserves under the Council of Labor and Defense. The idea is to keep a strategic stock of goods in case of war. According to regulations, the reserves can meet the needs of all 143 million Russians over three months, first of all — those of the army. Over this period, companies are expected to increase production or convert it to meet the needs of the Russian army and population.

The storage bases themselves, called Rosrezerv Combines, were created during the Cold War, conceived as invulnerable systems, designed to withstand nuclear strikes, earthquakes and floods, and were therefore built far away from populated areas.

According to Federal Law No. 79 “On the State Material Reserve,” information on the accumulation rates, release, bookmark, refreshment, deployment and actual stocks of the state reserve are classified as state secrets. Therefore, the Federal Reserve is an even more closed agency than the Ministry of Defense.

According to Russian registry information, Slava’s license includes “Activities related to protection of state secrets (Russian Federal Security Service, Federal Service for Technical and Export Control, Foreign Intelligence Service, Ministry of Defense),” “Mineral use.”

Advisor to Ukraine’s Minister of Interior Anron Heraschenko noted that the Slava Combine is a storage facility for the strategic state fuel reserve of the Russian Ministry of Defense, containing 48 reservoirs with a capacity 5,000 and 2,000 cubic meters.
