An attempt by the Ukrainian military to carry out a terrorist attack by using aircraft-type drones over Moscow, Tula, Kaluga and Bryansk regions was foiled, the ministry posted on its official website.
Kaluga Governor Vladislav Shapsha, on the other hand, stated that several drones were brought down in Dzerzhinsky and Zhukovsky districts. “According to preliminary information, there were no casualties,” the Shapsha wrote on Telegram.
Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin, meanwhile, stated that Ukraine launched an attempted massive attack with unmanned aerial vehicles.
The mayor said that the Russian anti-aircraft defense forces shot down several drones flying in the direction of Moscow in the Naro-Fominsk and Odintsovo districts.
He also noted that at the moment there is no information about possible human casualties or destruction at the crash sites.
News of Ukrainian drone attacks on facilities located on the territory of Russia, both in the areas close to the front line and on the periphery of Moscow, are coming almost daily lately.
Russian provinces bordering Ukraine, such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk and Voronezh, regularly report shell hits, drone raids and attacks from across the border, forcing the population to seek shelter.
