The Russian capital was targeted by rare drone attacks on Tuesday morning, causing “minor” damage to the building, officials said.

“This morning, a drone attack caused minor damage to several buildings at dawn. All the city’s emergency services are on the scene … No one has been seriously injured so far,” Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow, said.

The governor of the Moscow region, Andrei Vorobyov, claimed that many drones had crashed close to the country’s capital.

“This morning, the residents of certain districts in the Moscow region could hear explosions; it was our anti-air missile defence system,” he wrote.

“Several drones were shot down while approaching Moscow,” he wrote, urging residents to keep calm and adding that “all rescue services are doing their work”.

On Monday, after conducting midnight airstrikes on Kyiv, Russian soldiers launched missiles at the Ukrainian capital, causing scared citizens to flee for shelter. 

Meanwhile, two drones attacked the Kremlin earlier in May but were shot down, and Moscow blamed it on Ukraine.

This is the second time drone attacks have targeted Moscow since the beginning of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
