According to Russia, Ukraine is allegedly responsible for many early-morning drone attacks on Moscow.
The Russian defense ministry on Telegram claimed Kyiv had carried out a “terrorist attack” with at least eight drones.
Several structures, according to officials, received minimal damage.
No one was critically hurt, according to Sergei Sobyanin, the capital city’s mayor. He said emergency services were “on the scene of incidents.”
All of the drones, according to the defense ministry, were stopped.
“Three of them lost control and veered away from their intended targets after being silenced by electronic warfare. According to the ministry, the Pantsir-S surface-to-air missile system downed five more drones in the Moscow area.
According to earlier media accounts, up to 30 drones were utilized. Authorities have also claimed that several of them were brought down and fell on structures.
Kiev has not responded, but on Monday Gen. Kyrylo Budanov, head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, issued a warning about a quick response to a string of Russian missile attacks on Kyiv.
Social media posts on the topic revealed smoke trails in the sky over the Russian capital. Some displays have a broken window.
Some residents, according to Mr. Sobyanin, were evacuated. He also posted on Telegram that two persons had requested medical attention.
Steve Rosenberg, the Russia editor for the BBC, who is located in Moscow, heard an explosion at 06:24 local time (03:24 GMT) in north-west Moscow. The blow caused the windows in his home to tremble.
He claims that an explosion was heard at 06:58.
According to the discussions on social media, many other people in the Moscow region also heard the booms, he continues.
Additionally, our correspondent indicated that locals will be alarmed by the attacks. According to him, many people perceived the fighting in Ukraine as something that was taking place “a long way away, on television.”
Following an overnight drone attack on Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, in which at least one person was reportedly killed, Moscow was targeted for attack.
According to Ukrainian officials, houses were set on fire by falling debris as Ukraine’s air defenses stopped more than 20 drones.
At the beginning of May, a drone attack on the Kremlin allegedly occurred.
Unverified videos of smoke rising over the complex at the time and another showing a tiny explosion over the site’s Senate building also circulated online.
The strike was allegedly carried out on Kyiv’s orders, according to Russian authorities, while Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, denied any involvement by his nation.
