Russia’s Defense Ministry says its security forces have intercepted and destroyed two Ukrainian drones in Moscow.
Russian security forces have “suppressed” Ukrainian airstrikes in Moscow, the Russian Defense Ministry has announced, accusing Kyiv of launching “terrorist” attacks against the capital.
The earlier attack on Monday involved two drones, the ministry said in a statement.
“The Kyiv government’s attempt to carry out terrorist attacks using drones on objects in the city of Moscow has been stopped,” it said. “Two Ukrainian drones were crushed and crashed. No injuries.”
There was no comment from Ukraine.
The Russian news agency TASS reported that one of the drones crashed on Komsomolsky Prospekt, which is near the Russian Ministry of Defense, while the other hit a business center on Likhacheva Street near one of Moscow’s main streets.
The Reuters news agency reported that two deadly explosions had occurred before.
