43 employees of "Shahed" production in Alabuga: Molfar publishing the deanon

On August 23, 2023, two "Shahed-136" UAVs were shot down over the Sumy region. On August 22, a "Shahed" hit the city council in the Chernihiv region. On the night of August 16, Ukrainian air defenses destroyed 13 "Shaheds". According to analysis, these drones cost approximately $20k – $50k. These are mere pennies for Russia, making it easy for them to bulk purchase from Iran. However, even this seemed insufficient for the Russians.


At the "special economic zone" in Tatarstan, a factory was established to manufacture Shaheds. The Russians hope to also produce all the components themselves. This enterprise was set up to circumvent sanctions with the assistance of "friends" from Iran.


OSINT analysts from the Molfar agency have identified individuals involved in producing kamikaze drones in Russia. In this article, we reveal the names of some of these employees.



Alabuga/Yelabuga. What is it, and where is it located?


Alabuga is a special economic zone* in Tatarstan, Russia, 10 kilometers from Yelabuga. It was established back in 2006. According to a publication from March 2022, there were 33 enterprises operating there, and about 20 were in the planning or construction phase. Some of these productions also had affiliated institutions where future workers were trained.


*SEZ (special economic zone) refers to a portion of a country's territory where goods are considered outside the customs territory. They are not subject to regular customs control and taxation. It introduces preferential customs, currency-financial, tax, and other economic activity conditions within its boundaries.


The "Alabuga" SEZ is located in Tatarstan, near the Yelabuga city, near the Kama river 

The location of the enterprise is advantageous — nearby, there's a railway, an airport, and the federal highway M7. Previously, Alabuga produced cat food, automotive glass, and cultivated mushrooms for sale. Everything changed after the onset of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent sanctions imposed on the aggressor country. The Russian government announced plans to produce 6,000 drones by 2025. "Alabuga" plays a pivotal role in these plans.


So far, as reported by The Washington Post, production needs to catch up at least a month behind schedule. Alabuga's workers have managed to assemble only 300 drones. But these are merely "bodies" that can't yet fly. The word "yet" is the most terrifying part of this story because if sanctions are relaxed, or if Russia somehow finds a way to acquire the intricate electronic components necessary for large-scale drone production, a nightly nightmare may become a reality for every resident of Ukraine.


Employees of the "Shahed" factory in Alabuga: Who's behind the drone creation?

Employees of "Alabuga" and other specialists working in Russia on creating drones are direct participants in the military conflict against Ukraine. Their contribution to producing lethal equipment for the aggressor makes them direct accomplices in crimes and genocide against the Ukrainian people. The names of these individuals should be known worldwide as those who chose the side of aggression and violence.


We urge the European Union and all democratic countries to immediately impose sanctions on these individuals: freeze their assets, deny them entry, and confiscate their property. This is a matter of justice and moral responsibility to the modern world.
