Moscow attacked by drones early morning


Authorities have reported a drone attack on the Russian capital.

Residents said they heard blasts, with Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin later confirming a drone attack had taken place.

Sobyanin said in a Telegram post the attack caused “insignificant damage” to several buildings and that no one had been seriously hurt. He did not elaborate further.

Residents of two buildings damaged in the attack were evacuated, Sobyanin said.

Some 30 drones were destroyed in the Moscow region, according to local media.

Observers have suggested this is a prelude to a possible Ukrainian counteroffensive effort from Ukraine, though this cannot be confirmed.

There was no immediate comment on the attacks from Ukrainian officials.

It was the second reported attack on Moscow after authorities said two drones targeted the Kremlin earlier this month in what was labelled an attempt on President Vladimir Putin’s life.__Courtesy EuroNews
