The victory conditions are predicated on Russian "occupation" of fracking sites, but it is not specified whether the Russians must merely pass through these sites or spend a turn there.

My guess is that "occupy" means "station a unit in the hex." After all, if the Russians don't secure the facilities, which represent a substantial investment, they could be destroyed by saboteurs, commandos, etc. I would think the Russians would want the facilities themselves.

Russian forces just have to pass through a fracking site to win it for victory purposes.

4.0: "It is assumed that the Russians will immediately wreck any fracking site that they can get to."

Also, 4.1: "The Russian players wins the game automatically as of the instant that he has ever occupied all of the Industrial Center hexes within Poland, regardless of which game turn that this happens." (emphasis added)

I agree with your interpretation, but it's never made explicit in the rules. Some games would require you to end a given turn in a particular hex in order to change the state of that hex. I guess it comes down to deciding how long it would take to wreck a fracking site, and whether or not this can be done while "just passing through".
