Russia said on Monday it had “neutralized” two Ukrainian drones in Moscow overnight, saying it had foiled a “terrorist act” by Kiev in the Russian capital.
“On the morning of July 24, an attempt by the Kiev regime to commit a terrorist act using two drones (located) on objects within the borders of the city of Moscow was stopped,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
“Two Ukrainian drones were neutralized and crashed. “There is no loss of life,” he said.
According to TASS, one of the drones fell on Komsomolsky Prospekt near the Russian Defense Ministry, while the other hit a commercial center on Likacheva Street, near one of Moscow’s main ring boulevards.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the drone strikes hit “non-residential” buildings around 4 a.m. local time (0100 GMT).
He said emergency services were called to the scene and there were no injuries.
RIA Novosti news agency released video footage of the business center, where some damage can be seen at the top of the high-rise building.
The road leading to it is closed.
Moscow has been the subject of several drone attacks this year, including one that hit the Kremlin in May.
Earlier this month, Russia said it shot down five Ukrainian drones that disrupted Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport.
