Attack on Russian city ends in disaster: heavy blow to Putin’s “greyhound”

According to the NEXTA media project, Bryansk, a city about 380 kilometers southwest of Moscow with a population of just over 400,000, was attacked with drones. Via the X network, formerly Twitter, writes NEXTA:

“A drone attacked the premises of the microelectronics plant “Kremniy El” in Bryansk. As a result of the attack, one of the buildings caught fire. The plant was already attacked a week ago.” NEXTA further provides background information on the plant that was hit, saying, “It is one of the largest manufacturers of microelectronics in Russia, with 94 percent of the company’s production in 2017 made for the needs of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The plant produces parts for “Pantsir” air defense systems and “Iskander” missile systems.” Pantsirs are a Russian short-range air defense system also known by the code name Greyhound to the NATO transatlantic defense alliance.

NEXTA is a media project based in Warsaw. It positions itself against the regime of Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko and publishes information not only on Telegram but also on YouTube, X and various other channels.
