Multiple drones attacked the Russian capital of Moscow on Tuesday morning, damaging several buildings, Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has said. The attack prompted Sobyanin to order evacuations.
Evacuees were from two apartment blocks that were hit, according to messages posted on Telegram. The mayor, citing data from the city medical services, said that no residents of the buildings hit by the aircraft were seriously hurt. He added that two people requested medical assistance at the scene, but no one had to be taken to the hospital, according to a report by RT.
Telegram channel SHOT posted an unverified video of what it said was the destruction of a drone mid-air. The attack comes after two Ukrainian drones unsuccessfully attempted to strike the Kremlin earlier this month. Moscow accused Kyiv of attempting to assassinate Putin and vowed retaliation.

The attack comes after two Ukrainian drones unsuccessfully attempted to strike the Kremlin earlier this month. Moscow accused Kyiv of attempting to assassinate Putin and vowed retaliation. Ukraine has denied responsibility for the drone attack, as Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said, “We don’t attack Putin or Moscow.”
Recently, the Biden administration vowed to send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine. Russia has a warning for NATO too, which comes as the United States authorized its allies to supply Kyiv (only from their stockpiles) with the U.S.-made F-16 warplanes. Russia’s top diplomat has branded the move as “an unacceptable escalation” of the conflict.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has warned Western governments that this move is definitely “playing with fire”.
An American official says the warplanes could arrive by the end of the year, which has raised eyebrows about how the jets will be used. The mathematics don’t add up, but more importantly, it’s another major signal by the U.S.-led NATO military alliance of wanting to drag out the war as long as possible, the Tehran Times noted.
