2 min read

Russian media report that one of the drone attacked buildings near Komsomolsky prospect 17 in Moscow; traffic down this avenue has been closed.

It was reported that “electronic warfare systems jammed two Ukrainian drones, causing them to crash”

Ukrainian drones hit two buildings in Moscow and an ammunition depot in annexed Crimea on Monday, Russian officials said.

Authorities in Moscow reported two Ukrainian drones had been downed over the Russian capital during the night.

“Around 4:00 a.m. today, drone strikes on two non-residential buildings were recorded. There is no serious damage or casualties,” wrote Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin on the Telegram messaging app.

One of the drones crashed close to the Russian Defense Ministry building at Komsomolsky prospect 17 in the city center, while the  another unmanned aerial vehicle hitting a business center building on Likhachev Avenue. The building’s windows were shattered on the 17th and 18th floors.

The debris of a drone was found in central Moscow on Monday.

“At 17, Komsomolsky Prospekt, the debris of a drone was discovered. According to preliminary information, there were no casualties,” the official said.

According to him, law enforcement agencies and emergency services are currently working at the scene.

The attacks came a day after Kyiv vowed to “retaliate” for a Russian missile attack on the Black Sea port of Odesa.

Monday’s drone attack on Moscow was an act of international terrorism, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said. “[It was] an act of international terrorism,” she told the RTVI TV channel, commenting on the incident.

The Russian Defense Ministry earlier told reporters that “on the morning of July 24, the Kiev regime’s attempt to conduct a terrorist attack on facilities in Moscow, using two unmanned aerial vehicles, was thwarted.” The ministry said that “electronic warfare systems jammed two Ukrainian drones, causing them to crash.” No one was hurt, the ministry added.

Previous attacks

On July 4, several Ukrainian drones attacked Moscow and the Moscow Region. According to Sobyanin, air defenses downed all the drones and no one was hurt in the attack. Several flights were diverted from Vnukovo Airport to other airports for security reasons.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed the Kiev regime’s attempted drone attack on civilian infrastructure facilities as an act of terrorism.
