Drone strikes hit residential areas of Moscow; Russia accuses Ukraine for attacks
Russia has accused Ukraine of launching an early morning drone attack on Moscow, the first time the city has been targeted by multiple drones since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Russian defence ministry said Kyiv had staged an attack using at least eight drones and causing minor damage to several buildings.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said no one was seriously injured. Russia’s defence ministry said all eight drones had been intercepted. Ukraine has denied carrying out the drone strikes.
Earlier Russian media reports had said as many as 30 drones were involved. Authorities have also said several of them fell on buildings after being downed.
