Moscow Hit With Second Drone Attack in Two Days

A Telegram message from the Russian Defense Ministry said that the Kremlin had claimed on Tuesday that Ukraine had hit the same Moscow office building for the second time within 48 hours.

Russian officials confirmed that two more drones were downed near the city’s outer suburbs.

The Russian Ministry of Defense claims that two Ukrainian UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) were destroyed by air-by-air defence systems in the districts of Odintsovo, Naro-Fominsk and the Moscow region.

The announcement said that “another drone was suppressed using electronic warfare, and after losing control, crashed onto the territory of Moscow City’s non-residential complex.”


According to the BBC, no one was injured during the attack on the skyscraper. However, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin stated that “the IQ-Quarter Tower 1’s glazing was destroyed over 150 sq. meters.”

The New York Times reviewed video footage of the attack and identified one drone as an Ukrainian long-range model.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president, has recently spoken out about Kyiv’s plans to strike inside Russia. He argues that this is because they are winning the war.

Zelenskyy, in a video message on Sunday, said that “gradually the war is returning” to Russia’s territory – its military bases and symbolic centers. This is a natural and fair process.

NBC News reported that three Ukrainian drones were shot down in the early hours of Sunday morning, just a few hours before a large military parade at which President Vladimir Putin was to participate.
