Moscow has been hit by a rare drone attack after Russia launched a fresh wave of strikes on Kyiv early on Tuesday.
Drones struck several buildings in Moscow, with air defence systems destroying many on their approach to the Russian capital, Russian officials said.
“This morning, at dawn, a drone attack caused minor damage to several buildings. All the city’s emergency services are on the scene … No one has been seriously injured so far,” Moscow’s mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
Meanwhile, at least one person was killed and four others were injured in an apartment fire as Russia carried out its third drone attack on Kyiv in 24 hours.
Ukrainian defence forces shot down more than 20 Iranian-made Shahed drones. Air raid sirens blared in several regions as falling debris hit multiple districts of Kyiv, including the historic Podil and Pecherskyi neighbourhoods.
“A massive attack!” Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on Telegram app. “Do not leave shelters.”
