According to a Russian statement, Ukraine launched a "terrorist" drone attack on two buildings on Komsomolsky Street in the Russian capital Moscow at 04:00 local time on Monday. 

Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said in a statement, "Two buildings were attacked by drones. There were no casualties and no serious damage. All emergency responders are working at the scene."

The defense ministry said in the Telegram messaging app that two drones were "suppressed and crashed".


In the statement, it was claimed that the attack was carried out by Ukraine and that the Kyiv regime's "terrorist attack" on Moscow's territory was prevented.

Following the attack, some flights to Vnukovo Airport were diverted to neighboring airports for security reasons. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated that civilian areas were targeted with the attack and said, "The Kyiv regime's attempt to attack civilian areas is another terrorist attack."

Russian media reported that the attack occurred about 2 kilometers away from the Defense Ministry buildings. While it was seen that the windows in the buildings targeted in the attack were broken and fire broke out on the upper floors, the street where the incident occurred was temporarily closed to traffic.

The Ukrainian government has not yet made a statement regarding Russia's accusations.
