Ukrainian drones ‘strike near Russian defence ministry’
Russia said it thwarted a Ukrainian “terrorist act” on Moscow as two drones hit non-residential buildings, with one crashing near the defence ministry.
The alleged attack in the early hours of Monday came a day after Kyiv vowed to “retaliate” for a Russian missile strike on the Black Sea port of Odesa.
“A Kyiv regime attempt to carry out a terrorist act using two drones on objects on the territory of the city of Moscow was stopped,” Russia’s defence ministry said.
“Two Ukrainian drones were suppressed and crashed. There are no casualties.”
Russia meanwhile launched fresh attacks on Odesa overnight with a four-hour strike that destroyed a grain hangar, Kyiv said.
Four port workers are believed to have been injured, while tanks for storing “other types of cargo” have also been damaged.
