A drone has struck a building under construction in central Moscow, according to Mayor Sergei Sobyanin. The incident comes amidst escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
In addition to the attack in Moscow, Russian air defenses successfully shot down two drones in the Mozhaisk and Khimki districts of the Moscow region, according to the country’s defense ministry. Fortunately, there have been no reports of casualties. It remains unclear who is behind the attack.
Russian officials have described the drone strike as “another attempt by the Kyiv regime to carry out a terrorist attack.” The defense ministry explained that the drone, which hit the building at the Moscow City complex, had lost control due to electronic warfare and collided with the structure.
The United States State Department has responded to reports of the downed drones, stating that the United States does not endorse or encourage drone attacks in Russia.
Additionally, three elderly individuals were killed in Russian shelling near the eastern Ukrainian city of Lyman. The situation continues to intensify as tensions between Russia and Ukraine remain high.
These incidents highlight the growing concerns over the use of drones as weapons and the potential for them to be used in acts of terrorism. It is crucial for authorities to improve their defenses against such attacks to ensure the safety and security of the public.
