Moscow hit by fresh drone strike, says mayor

In World

Russian air defences have shot down “several” drones targeting the Moscow region, mayor Sergei Sobyanin has said, with one hitting a tower that had already been struck in a previous attack.

“The facade of the 21st floor was damaged. The glazing of 150 square metres was broken,” he said in a Telegram post. No injuries were reported.

The Russian defence ministry said two drones were destroyed by air defence systems in the Odintsovo and Narofominsk districts near Moscow, while a third was jammed and crashed in the capital, according to the Russian news agency Tass. It blamed the attacks on Kyiv.

The strikes come two days Ukrainian president Volodymr Zelenskiy said that the war was coming to Russia, after three drones were shot down over Moscow on Sunday, although Ukraine has not acknowledged responsibility for the attacks.

In Sunday’s attack, Russia said its air defences shot down one drone in Odintsovo in the surrounding Moscow region, while two others were jammed and crashed into the Moscow City business district.

Moscow and its surrounding area are more than 500km from the Ukrainian border and the ongoing conflict there, but have been targeted in several drone attacks this year.
