WSJ: Ukraine Intensifies Drone Attacks on Russia, Moscow Says:
An airport in the capital was closed and Russian naval vessels were attacked in the Black Sea
Ukrainian drones struck Moscow for a second time this week and forced the closure of a key airport, while unmanned boats attacked Russian merchant ships as well as naval vessels in the Black Sea, Russian authorities said Tuesday.
Vnukovo, one of Moscow’s four main airports, was closed following the attack. A skyscraper that hosts private and government offices was also attacked, Moscow’s mayor’s office said.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said unmanned Ukrainian naval drones were destroyed while trying to sink Russian civilian transport ships en route to the Bosporus in the southwestern Black Sea, as well as Russian warships patrolling waters off the coast of Crimea.
It wasn’t possible to independently confirm the Defense Ministry’s statement, which has issued inaccurate claims in the past.
Ukraine and Russia have traded accusations that their merchant ships have been used to smuggle weapons as the Black Sea takes on a growing significance to each country’s war effort.
The Ukrainian government hasn’t directly commented on the claims. Following the earlier drone attack on Sunday that targeted the same Moscow high-rise, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said the war was returning to Russia, a process he deemed “inevitable, natural and absolutely fair.”
The unmanned aerial vehicles managed to reach the Moskva-City business district despite stringent aerial defenses and antidrone measures that were put in place late last year. These defenses were fortified after the Kremlin itself, the official seat of President Vladimir Putin, was targeted on May 3.
Two drones were destroyed and one crashed inside Moscow after being targeted by electronic jamming equipment, Russia’s Ministry of Defense said Tuesday. No one was hurt in the attack, it added. --->READ MORE HERE
