On Tuesday, drones struck several buildings in Moscow, causing minor damage, Russian officials said. Many people were evacuated due to drone strikes.
About twenty-five drones were said to have carried out an apparent attack on Moscow.
The incident comes weeks after two drones exploded over Kremlin. Kyiv has denied responsibility but Russia claims Ukraine carried out the attack, New York Post reported.
Andrei Vorobyov, governor of the Moscow region, said on the Telegram messaging channel that several drones were shot down on their approach to Moscow. Two people sought medical assistance and none were seriously injured, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
Russia's RIA state news agency reported that some residents of a building on Profsoyuznaya Street in the city's south were being evacuated. Reuters was not able to independently verify the reports.
In Kyiv, Ukrainian defense forces said they shot down more than 20 drones during a fresh wave of Russian air strikes on Tuesday.
"A massive attack!" Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on the Telegram messaging app. "Do not leave shelters."
One person died and four were injured when debris from a destroyed Russian projectile hit a high-rise apartment building sparking a fire, Ukrainian officials said.
