Russia’s capital city of Moscow has reportedly been struck by a Ukrainian drone attack overnight.
Ukraine has reportedly launched a drone attack on Moscow overnight in an apparent retaliation strike for the Kremlin’s three-day bombing of Kyiv.
Residents in the Russian capital reported hearing explosions and Mayor Sergei Sobyanin later confirmed buildings had been damaged, but claimed no one had been seriously injured.
Drones struck several buildings in Moscow, with air defence systems destroying many on their approach to the Russian capital, Russian officials said.

“This morning, at dawn, a drone attack caused minor damage to several buildings. All the city’s emergency services are on the scene” Moscow’s mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
This is the second such incident since what the Kremlin claims was an attempt on Putin’s life earlier this month.
