A new attack by Ukrainian drones against Moscow and its region was intercepted on Sunday by the Russian military. The international airports of Domodedovo and Vnukovo serving the Russian capital had been temporarily closed.
An attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out a terrorist drone attack on the infrastructure was thwarted,” the Russian military said. The aircraft “crashed in an uninhabited area” and “there were no casualties or damage.”
Drones also targeted the Russian regions of Kursk in the west, injuring five, and Rostov, on the border with Ukraine. In Kursk, according to the governor of the region Roman Starovoit, a drone “crashed on the roof of the station, after which a fire broke out” before being “extinguished”.
These new attacks come the day after a deadly attack by Moscow forces in the heart of Chernigov in northern Ukraine, which killed seven people and injured 148 others. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky vowed a severe retaliation:
“I am sure that our soldiers will respond to Russia for this terrorist attack. They will respond tangibly.”
After Sweden, Zelensky is visiting the Netherlands, two days after the country said the United States had given its approval to Dutch and Danish authorities to deliver F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine’s air force.
The US approval was seen as a big boost for kyiv, even though the fighter jets will not make an impact anytime soon in the nearly 18-month war.
