NY POST: Moscow, Crimea hit by drones while Russian forces bombard Ukraine’s south: Russian officials
Russian authorities accused Ukraine of launching a drone attack on Moscow early Monday that saw one of the aircraft fall near the Defense Ministry’s main headquarters and striking Crimea, while the Russian military unleashed new strikes on port infrastructure in southern Ukraine.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said there were no casualties when the drones struck two nonresidential buildings.
The Defense Ministry claimed that the military jammed both attacking drones, forcing them to crash.
Russian media reported that one of the drones fell on the Komsomolsky highway near Moscow’s center, shattering shop windows and damaged the roof of a house just about over 200 yards away from the towering riverside Defense Ministry building.
The ministry’s main headquarters has Pantsyr air defense systems placed on the roof.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the drone targeted the Defense Ministry’s headquarters, which is located 1.7 miles away from the Kremlin, or was heading to some other target in central Moscow.
Another drone hit an office building in southern Moscow, gutting several upper floors — more visible damage compared to earlier drone strikes on the Russian capital.
Emergency workers were inspecting the damage and traffic was halted on sections of highways where the drones fell.
Ukrainian authorities didn’t immediately claim responsibility for the strike, which was the second drone attack on the Russian capital this month.
In the previous attack on July 4, the Russian military said four of the five drones were downed by air defenses on the outskirts of Moscow and the fifth was jammed by electronic warfare means and forced down.
The raid prompted authorities to temporarily restrict flights at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport and divert flights to two other Moscow airports. --->READ MORE HERE
